Seasoned or Kiln Dried firewood is always the best choice. It is drier, will burn at a higher temperature for a longer time and gives real value for money. Wet wood burns slowly and weakly and ends up costing you more money. This is especially true with some green hardwoods. Hardwood is dense. It burns down into glowing coals giving out lots of radiant heat that lasts a bit longer than softwood. It is usually the best wood to use for heating but there are exceptions.
One of the most common mistakes people make is in burning wood that is not Air dried or seasoned. Wood can have moisture content of up to 60%. Before the wood can actually burn, the moisture level has to drop low enough for the fibers to burn around 25-30% mc.
Fires that use fresh cut wood require a huge amount of heat to be used up in the evaporation of this moisture. This process absorbs much of the heat that would have been produced. It also results in a hard to start fire and a fire that puts off LOTS of extra smoke. A fire using seasoned firewood starts easy, puts off much more heat, and will not pump smoke all over your neighbours, or our planet. Firewood should be cut split and bought well in advance of the wood burning season. Split wood cures much faster than non-split wood.
Unseasoned wood is like damp laundry, if you seal it up, it will never dry and will just sit and mold. You don't want moldy firewood. We prefer that you keep the rain off the top of the stack but leave the sides open. This allows for natural airflow to the stack to cure the wood. Stacking the wood off the ground in an area that gets afternoon sun is the best.
