WHICH KIND OF WOOD IS BEST FOR BURNING?  

Alder - Poor Produces poor heat output and doesn’t last well.  

Apple – Good A slow, steady burner with a nice scent and a small flame that does not spit or spark.  

Ash – **Superb** Widely considered to be the king of logs for burning, has a steady flame and excellent heat output. Ash is our number one recommendation. Approved by Warrington Logs.   Beech – Excellent Like Ash, a steady flame and good heat output. One of our top three recommendations. Approved by Warrington Logs.  

Birch – Good Good heat output but burns a little too quickly.  

Cedar – Medium Consistent, long heat output but can spit and the sap can cause flue deposits.  

Cherry – Good A slow-burning wood that produces good heat output and a pleasant scent.  

Chestnut – Poor A small flame and poor heat output.  

Firs (Douglas etc.) – Poor A small flame and poor heat output. The sap can cause flue deposits.  

Elm – Medium Can be difficult to light. Medium burning qualities.  

Eucalyptus – Poor Burns too quickly and the sap can cause flue deposits.  

Hawthorne – Very good Slow burn with good heat output.  

Hazel – Good Good heat output but slightly too quick to burn.

Holly – Poor A good flame but too quick to burn and a poor heat output.  

Hornbeam – Good Burns in a similar way to Beech. Slow burn with a good heat output.

  Horse Chestnut – Good (For stoves only) A good burner with good heat output but can spit and, therefore, best for stoves.  

Laburnum – Poor Very smoky, poor burn.  

Larch – Medium Not a bad burner but the sap can cause deposits in the flue.

Laurel – Medium Burns with a good flame and reasonable heat output.  

Lilac – Good Burns with a good flame. The smaller branches make good kindling.  

Maple – Good A good flame and heat output.

  Oak – Excellent A very dense wood that burns slowly but with a good flame. One of our top three recommendations.

  Pear – Good Burns well with good heat output.

  Pine – Good Burns well with a good flame but the sap can cause flue deposits and a risk of fire.

Poplar – Poor Very smoky with a poor burn.

Rowan – Very Good Burns slowly and well with good heat output.  

Robinia (Acacia) – Good (for stoves) Burns slowly and well with good heat output. Produces an acrid smell so only for stoves.

 Spruce – Poor Quick-burning with a low heat output.  

Sycamore – Medium A good flame but with only a moderate heat output.

Sweet Chestnut – Medium (stoves only) Burns reasonably well with a reasonable heat output but it can spit so isn’t suitable for open fires.  

Thorn – Very good A steady flame with good heat output and very little smoke.  

Willow – Poor A poor firewood that does not burn well.  

Yew – Very good A good, slow burner with good heat output.
