Wood to burn in the spring

In the UK, spring brings a milder climate and damp conditions. To combat the dampness, it's best to choose firewood that burns hot and fast, providing quick warmth. Hardwoods such as birch, ash, and oak are excellent choices during this time. They ignite easily and produce abright flame, ideal for taking the chill out of the air.

Although summer is not the typical firewood season, there might still be some chilly evenings or outdoor gatherings where a fire adds a special touch. For these occasions, softwoods like pine and spruce are great options. They burn quickly and produce a pleasant aroma, perfect for those relaxed summer nights. Despite summer not being a top season for firewood, it is agreat season to enjoy your outdoor pizza ovens, there are plenty of cooking woods to ignite the oven such as sawn timber, braai wood and olive wood.

What to burn in the autumn

As the leaves start to fall and the temperatures drop, it's time to prepare for the colder months ahead. During autumn, you'll want firewood that offers a balance of heat output and burn time. Hardwoods like beech, maple, and birch are excellent choices. They provide a steady heat output, ensuring a warm and cosy ambience during those crisp autumn evenings.
