  • There are approximately 325 logs in a cubic meter of loose filled loads if the logs are cut to 10 inch lengths.
  • We can cut logs to a length from 8 inches up to 24 inches long to suit your wood burning needs.  There is a £10 charge for cutting to lengths shorter than 10 inches, due to the extra time it takes.
  • Multiple cubic meters can be ordered.
  • Order in the summer and get it in the log store to make sure that you have dry,  ready to burn wood in the winter, if you order more than you need don't worry it doesn't go out of date.
