Start by placing two large pieces of wood on the bottom of the fire. Place scrunched up newspaper between the two logs and layer the kindling on top of the two larger logs in a crisscrossed pattern.

By creating the crisscross pattern, more air is allowed into the fire and if it doesn’t light the first time, will be easier to attempt again.

Using safety matches or a lighter, light the fire. We recommend lighting the kindling and the newspaper, so the flames heat the logs from both directions, bringing a better chance of the logs lighting.

If you add too larger pieces of wood to the fire too early, it may smother it entirely.

Although every house differs with factors such as size, insulation, and double glazing, we have put together some estimates of how much firewood you might burn over winter based on the number of fires you burn per week.

Please note these figures are all estimates.

1 to 2 fires a week – 3.5m³
2 to 3 fires a week – 7m³
4 to 5 fires a week – 10m³
If your fire is always going – 14m³ or more

Pine is a softwood which burns rapidly, meaning more wood needs to be added regularly to keep a cosy blaze going.

Macrocarpa is a medium-density wood and burns slower than softwoods. Avoid macrocarpa if you have an open fire, as it’s prone to sparking.

Gum is a hardwood and makes a better fire due to its greater heat content and slow burn properties. Hardwoods, however, can take up to 18 months to dry.

It is best to purchase your firewood in the spring/summer ready for the upcoming winter and while the prices are at their lowest. This gives your wood time to season for the most efficient and clean burn.  During the summer season, Firewood Online sells unseasoned wood to be stored and dried before burning, on special. We generally dry wood available all year round.

To test if your wood is dry enough to burn you can throw a small piece onto hot glowing coals. If it catches fire on the top and sides within 1 minute, it is dry enough to burn well.

More information on burning can be read here.

When storing your firewood ready for winter, stack it in a dry location under cover or against a sheltered wall. Ensure that you leave gaps for air circulation, so it dries out properly.

Firewood Online measures by a thrown cubic metre. This means as we throw it into our truck it is measured – it is not measured when stacked. Stacking the firewood reduces the volume by approximately a third.
