Contrary to appearances, choosing the right wood for burning in a fireplace is not easy. When choosing firewood, several parameters should be taken into account: its density, hardness, cleavage, bark content and degree of drying, as well as drying speed. They largely determine the size of flame, the amount of heat obtained and the amount of smoke that accompanies combustion.

The drier the firewood, the harder it is and the more heat it gives off as it is more calorific. Dry wood burns with a smaller flame than wet wood, but it lasts longer. Therefore, although it is more expensive, it is usually more economical. The calorific value of firewood, i.e. its efficiency, depends on the density after drying.

Hardwood burning is accompanied by a small flame but it gives off more heat. It burns slower requiring less frequent refilling. As a result, although more expensive, it may turn out to be more economical, and the reserve will certainly take up less space than in the case of softwood.

Wood (retail) is sold loose. It is not stacked on pallets.

Beech – wood with properties similar to hornbeam. Wet beech wood has one of the largest amounts of water among all deciduous tree species, but similarly to hornbeam it is characterized by good and quite quick drying. Similarly to hornbeam, it has thin bark.

Oak – hard, heavy wood with quite thick bark. Very popular firewood due to its high occurrence. It is considered to be difficult to dry, but when seasoned in airy and sunny places it dries only slightly slower than other species. It is very popular due to its long and slow burning. The disadvantage is undoubtedly a thick bark, which leaves a large amount of ash after combustion.

Kindling wood – dry softwood chips, ideal for kindling in fireplaces, tiled stoves and central heating stoves. The wood is cut to a length of 20 cm and then split into small pieces.
