Wood represents stored sun energy and, thus, it is an inexhaustible source of energy. Heating with wood is an environmentally-friendly and climate-friendly alternative to fossil sources of energy. You help to protect the environment, save money and spend your leisure time actively outdoor.
Burning of wood, in contrast to fossil fuels, releases only as much environmentally harmful carbon dioxide as the trees have previously absorbed. State-of-the-art wood-fired heating systems meet all emission standards and are highly efficient. One solid cubic metre of firewood provides as much energy as approx. 200 litres of fuel oil.
We offer deciduous or coniferous firewood in round shape in different lengths. Among our customers are many firewood merchants as well as end customers. We would be pleased to submit you an offer ex forest road or including free delivery. Especially for key account customers we have a special assortment of beech and oak pallet wood which is, due to its straight trunk shape, perfectly suited for firewood processing in firewood processors.
OUR FIREWOOD OFFER FOR YOU:
- Round firewood in the form of long logs in different lengths on stacks ex forest road or delivery per lorry
- Round firewood in the form of short logs up to 100 cm, ex forest road or delivery in containers per lorry
- A section lot for cutting trees yourself
MAKE FIREWOOD YOURSELF – WHAT YOU HAVE TO TAKE IN CONSIDERATION
- For your own safety you are never allowed to work alone. Safety equipment is mandatory. In addition, you must have experience in handling a chainsaw.
- You need your own tools and means of transportation.
- We are a PEFC-certified company. For this reason, you have to use bio-chain oil.
- Our forestry staff assigns you a section lot. The removal of the wood assigned to you is carried out against prepayment.
CORRECT HEATING WITH WOOD - WHY YOU SHOULD CHOP IT FINELY?
Wood should be suitably cut in preparation for firing and finely chopped. If wood is finely cut, i.e. the thickest cross-section measures 10 (12) cm, then it can be used for heating already in the autumn of the following year provided that its storage is favourable – in other words it takes one year from the stack in the forest to the fireplace.
If wood is split to 16 cm at the maximum cross-section, drying takes longer (two years from the stack in the forest to the fireplace). The reason for the fast drying is to be seen in the multiple increases in surface as compared to logs with “protective” bark:
- short distances from end face to end face (cutting planes) of 20 – 30 cm
- large surface of the splitting planes (rifty and rough)
- low thickness of the wood so that sun and wind remove moisture to the core
CORRECT HEATING WITH WOOD - HOW YOU SHOULD STORE WOOD
- ideally under a roof
- off the ground – no ground contact /no rising capillary water e.g. a pallet as base
- protected against splashing water
- well back-ventilated
- in a sunny location
Wood with a moisture content of less than 20% is dry enough for the fireplace. In average fireplaces, extremely dry wood, “like out of the baking oven”, however, outgases faster than it burns, therefore the efficiency can also decline and the firebox may be damaged.
