Hands on Tree Care were called to Chesterfield to dismantle some Leylandii and Lawson’s Cypress trees. The trees were situated in the rear garden and needed to be removed to allow more light into the garden.
After the trees were cut down, all the logs were stacked and cut to size for the customer to use on their wood burning stove. Typically logs would need 12-18 months seasoning so they have a proper chance to dry out. Ideal moisture content for hard or soft wood logs for stove burning is 20% or under. This ensures excessive tar does not form in chimneys and sufficient heat is produced from fire to warm rooms.
