The installation of wood burners in residential properties is a practice that has made a comeback in recent years. It is common now to see these in homes in urban areas, and not just out in the sticks where main supplies can often be unreliable. If you’re one of the many homeowners that run their own wood burner or has an open fireplace, you’re likely wondering about the best types of firewood. Bournemouth customers need only call RTS Logs or read on to find out more.

At RTS Logs, we have, for many years, been in the business of supplying logs, coal and kindling to customers throughout Bournemouth. Firewood is not all the same contrary to popular belief, with two types of firewood available – hardwood and softwood.

Types of Firewood Bournemouth Customers Can Purchase

When choosing firewood, it’s important to select the right type for the intended use in order to guarantee the best possible results.


If you’re purchasing firewood for use in heating your property or fuelling a stove, hardwood is by far one of the most appropriate types of firewood in Bournemouth. Examples of hardwood include Oak, Birch, and Ash and each sports its own unique qualities. For instance, Ash burns well without mixing with other types of wood and produces a steady flame outputting enough heat to keep any home nice and warm.

The majority of hardwoods come from trees which grow a lot slower, making the wood denser than most softwoods. It is easy to identify such types of firewood. Bournemouth customers need only note the colour, which will be darker than softwood.


By comparison, softwoods are generally less dense than hardwoods but tend to season a lot quicker. This makes them perfect for use as kindling as they ignite faster, making them great for getting fires burning. They tend to provide a lower heat output, however, making them poorly suited for keeping your home warm or cooking food, unlike hardwoods.

There are many types of softwood which can be used interchangeably to achieve the same results. These include:Types of Firewood Bournemouth
