Not very many people are aware of the different types of firewood available. Cheap doesn’t always mean good quality wood. There are largely two main types of firewood – seasoned and unseasoned firewood. Seasoned firewood has been treated in the sense it has been heated and dried. Also in the process of heating it they have gotten rid of all the fungi and mold. Seasoned wood on the other hand is wood that naturally has less than 40% water in them by cutting them, splitting them and drying them for 10 -12 months. A good way to identify seasoned wood is the lighter worn out color of the wood, cracks appearing towards the ends due to minimum moisture and the absence of the bark and any fungi or mold. The brænde sold has been kiln dried and properly treated for any bugs or molds. They offer them n the form of pellets, briquettes or even small logs.
With over ten years of experience in firewood, dkbrænde, has served Denmark, Latvia, Poland, Germany and Sweden consistently. They deliver right to your doorstep on their mobile trucks which come with forklifts which make it easier to transport offload the firewood. The other types of firewood are hardwood and softwood. For initially starting a fire it is advised to use softwood as they are easier to kindle. However, they burn very quickly and produce lower amounts of heat. Also this type of wood may start to store considerable amounts of Creosote in your chimney. Cedar, Yellow Pine and Cypress are examples of such wood and are perfect for kindling home fires.
