All our timber comes from sustainably managed British woodlands and forests, managed tree thinning and local country estates. Well managed woodlands promote healthy growth of new trees and maintain woodland diversity and ecosystems. Our hardwood timber is predominately Ash, Beech, Oak, Birch and Sycamore. Our softwood timber used for both Kindling and softwood logs are predominantly Larch and Spruce.

GWB Firewood Logs Ltd ensures wood fuel is Ready to Burn. As a local provider of wood fuel, GWB Firewood Logs Ltd is making it easy for customers to find wood fuels that have been certified as Ready to Burn and that meet new legal requirements that come into force from 1 May 2021 in England.

Under the new Air Quality (Domestic Solid Fuels Standards) (England) Regulations 2020 that will apply in England from 1 May 2021, wood fuel sold in volumes under 2m3 will need to be certified as Ready to Burn. The new regulations aim to prevent harmful pollution from domestic burning of all solid fuels by ensuring wood sold in volumes of under 2m3 is certified as having a moisture content of 20% or less.

The DEFRA (Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs) Ready to Burn certification scheme is run by Woodsure. Woodsure is a non-profit organisation striving to raise the quality of wood fuel in the industry. For the past four years, Woodsure has been leading the way in championing the use of less polluting dry wood which is verified by its independent inspectors as having an average moisture content of 20% or less, meaning it burns with less smoke than wetter wood.

GWB Firewood Logs customers can be confident that the wood fuel being sold is ready for immediate use by looking for the Ready to Burn logo along with the supplier’s name and unique Ready to Burn certification number.

George (Director/Owner, GWB Firewood Logs Ltd) says: “The new legislation is all about helping to reduce particulate emissions and improve air quality. Certified wood fuels will give you more heat from each piece of Ready to Burn wood fuel burnt. They burn more efficiently than unseasoned, green wood and reduce the environmental impact of burning. Using proven dry wood is also better for your appliance and chimney and will help reduce maintenance and fuel costs. “The Ready to Burn certification scheme makes it easier than ever for people to identify fuels that meet legal requirements, so they can have complete confidence in what they’re buying.”

Biomass Suppliers List (BSL) Member

The Biomass Suppliers List (BSL) was introduced by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), formerly the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), in April 2014.

It supports the Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme by ensuring that RHI payments are only issued to biomass boilers using woodfuel that meets certain sustainability and legality requirements.

From 1st July 2021 the BSL is administered on behalf of BEIS by Woodsure.

Softwood Vs Hardwood: What’s the difference?

Both types of wood make great firewood, however they have different burning properties and therefore different purposes. The simplest difference between the two types is the rate at which the trees grow. Hardwood is a much slower growing tree and therefore the timber much denser, such as Oak, Ash and Silver Birch. Softwood trees grow much quicker and therefore the timber is less dense. Traditionally softwood trees don’t lose their leaves in winter, such as pine, Larch and Spruce.


Due to softwoods low density, it takes far less time to dry, is easy to light and provides a quick, high intensity burn. This is why kindling is predominantly made from softwood as it’s really good at getting your fire started.

Does softwood smoke more? ……. Many people believe that due to softwoods high resin content, burning it as a firewood creates lots of smoke. Most advise today would be that, as long as the softwood has been dried appropriately then it should not smoke any more than hardwood. All GWB FIREWOOD LOGS Softwood firewood, is kiln dried to an average of below 20% moisture and READY TO BURN.


Hardwood will burn for longer and hotter than softwood due to the higher density of wood. Hardwood makes a great firewood for a long and continued burn. And if you like to sit back and not have to feed your fire as often, then hardwood is the option for you.

But remember whether you choose to burn Hardwood or Softwood make sure it is READY TO BURN with a moisture content below 20%. And don’t forget to sweep your chimney AT LEAST once a year by a HETAS certified chimney sweep. Find a HETAS approved chimney sweep near you
