Quality firewood that burns cleaner and longer is better for open-fire cooking, leaves less residue, and is available in logs in Essex. Woods ranging from oak hardwood, birch, sycamore, beach, fruit, to ash kiln-dried can be found in Essex, Brentwood, Canvey, and Wickford locations. These logs have very low moisture content at less than 15 per cent, which allows them to burn easier at a higher heat, meaning less smoke for you. With the higher heat, less smoke, and fewer ashes, your chimney will be cleaner and decrease the money you spend on chimney sweeps. If you like to have a hot, toasty fire all winter, there are logs in Essex that come in medium to large sizes. It also supplies kindling and wood for wood burners and open fires for those who prefer an untraditional fireplace. Utilising better materials in your fireplace will not only decrease maintenance costs but provide you with an overall less smoky and warmer hearth experience.
