Read our story

Retford Logs is a well established local family business producing high grade seasoned hardwood logs in Nottinghamshire.

Dedicated to the firewood business, we first started producing and selling logs over 30 years ago and have spent many years working within the firewood and forestry industry and during this time have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience which are using to produce top quality firewood..

Our firewood logs are produced from firewood grade timber which we have sourced locally. The timber which we use is harvested from sustainably managed local woods thus ensuring our products have as low an environmental impact as possible.

We do not use wood arisings from domestic tree surgery work or other gardening byproducts which tend to be very variable in their quality and nature, but select suitable firewood grade timber which once processed, produces high quality firewood logs

Our Products

Locally Sourced

All of the timber which we use is locally grown hardwood which has been sawn, split and seasoned with an average moisture content of 20% or less. Each bag contains a mixture of wood types with a prominence of ash and silver birch but we also include small proportions of oak, beech and sycamore within the firewood mix. When burnt together ash and silver birch make an excellent fuel - the silver birch catches fire very easily, quickly producing plenty of heat whilst the ash takes a little longer to catch aligh t but it does burn for longer, as does the oak and beech.

The wood is cut to an average length of 22cm and our standard logs have a diameter of 8 - 10cm. This makes them perfect for small to medium sized wood burning stoves (4 - 7kw). We can also supply slightly larger chunky logs which are ideally suited to larger stoves and open fires.

If you require chunky logs please indicate this at the time of ordering.

All of our prices include VAT (domestic fuel tax) at 5%
