Petersfield Logs & Coal

Petersfield Logs & Coal have been supplying quality fuels to Petersfield and district since 1995, we are a small family run business based at Upper Downgate Farm in Steep Marsh.

After many years researching the best timber for fuels, we have chosen Ash as the main stay for our premium quality loads. It burns hot and slowly, leaving minimal residue and minimum deposits in your chimney hearth or flue lining.

Our Premium quality ash loads are majority Ash, which is the best money can buy. Our mixed hardwood loads would typically be a mix of beech, oak, birch and other top quality, hot burning hardwoods. Our softwood loads offer quality seasoned timber, which will burn very hot and offers exceptional value for money. We recommend softwood loads for wood burners as some softwoods can spit in an open fire. However many people use soft wood loads in an open fire with the use of a fire guard. Our Timber comes from locally managed forests. All timber is seasoned onsite only delivered to our customers when ready.

We now also deliver four different wood types in netted Sacks. From kiln dried timber to soft wood. Netted sacks are ideal for people with limited space, difficult vehicular access, or occasional fire users. 1 tonne capacity bulk bags are also available for delivery or collection they offer great value but are also a very convenient way of having larger quantities of loose logs delivered. Petersfield logs & coal also supply a range of coal products in 20kg sealed sacks. These are easy to move but still offer great value for money. Browse our site to see what other fantastic products we provide.

The benefits of using wood as fuel are many:

Burning logs is carbon neutral as the tree absorbs as much carbon dioxide in its growing life as it gives off during burning, Net carbon emissions are reduced compared to fossil fuels. Switching to wood can reduce heating bills. Sustainably managed wood fuels are a renewable source of energy. Wood fuels create and sustain rural jobs.

Traditional Air Dried Vs Kiln Dried Logs

Logs are both kiln dried and air dried for the same reason, which is to provide a timber which is ready to burn both safely and efficiently.

We at Petersfield Logs have always maintained that the traditional method of air drying logs is by far the best.

The reason for this is that it is not possible to rush the air drying process. Our timber is cut in local forestry into 12 foot lengths and transported back to the farm where it is left to mature for at the very least 2 years. During this time the wood naturally dries bringing it down to a moisture level which is both safe and efficient to burn.

Whereas the process of kiln drying logs involves green timber (freshly cut) being put through the kiln then generally being ready to burn after 10 days of cooking. The problem with this is to run a kiln you need another energy source to run it. This could be electric, oil, gas or in some cases wood. We at Petersfield Logs believe that it is neither environmentally or financially viable. A great deal of the kiln dried timber that is on sale at the moment in the UK is produced in eastern Europe again using oil fired kilns and then transported by lorry and ferry across the continent, which has a dubious environmental impact.

The process we use to season our logs is costly but only to us and not to the environment.

Another concern we have with some batches of kiln dried logs that we have viewed is that they appear to be flashed through the kiln and not left in there long enough resulting in a log that looks and feels dry to touch but on re splitting still has a green/wet core, which in turn results in potential problems for your wood burners and chimneys. At Petersfield logs all our loose loads and bulk bags are air dried to a safe moisture content. If you are looking for something even drier we can offer netted sacks of wood that are 2 years air dried and then a following 8 months barn stored. Giving you a bone dry log dryer than most kiln dried logs but ethically produced and seasoned and perfect for instant use.

Feedback from customers who have tried our air dried loose and barn stored netted sacks compared to commercially produced kiln dried is that our lasts far longer and produces far more heat and bottom in the fire.

All our air dried and barn stored logs are available in 3 wood types for delivery or collection from the farm.
