Birch logs for sale

Kiln dried birch, like ash, is another hardwood and a good firewood to burn particularly if you want fast heat. Birch bark makes a great fire starter because of its similarity to paper and has a unique slightly sweet smell which most people find pleasant. Birch is perfect if your logs will be on display due to its silvery flaky bark. We recommend Birch if you're having occasional fires and want fast high heat. They're excellent when burnt with other slower burning logs. These logs are ready to burn certified and delivered free in England and Wales.
