Alder is one of the main five types of woods we recommend for burning here at Cozilogs. Others recommended are ash, birch, hornbeam, and oak.
Why choose alder logs?
Alder is a popular hardwood and is actively used for splitting into logs. Alder is a member of the Birch family of trees and so has similar characteristics to Birch logs. Whilst alder is definitely a hardwood, it is towards the softer end of the scale and is less dense than Ash, Hornbeam, and Oak.
Alder as a softer hardwood has the advantage of being easy to light, although the use of kindling and firelighters is still recommended. If you sometimes struggle to get open fires going, alder is a great choice. Whilst having good heat output, Alder has a lower heat output than Oak and other hardwoods. Alder stays alight for less time but has the advantage of being the lowest-priced hardwood log we supply.
Alder burns with an orange-tinted flame and provided it is seasoned is recommended as firewood. Naturally, our alder logs are professionally kiln seasoned. Alder logs burn very well and get to high temperatures quickly with minimal smoke. Alder has a smooth and clean burn and a pleasant aroma (making it ideal for BBQing and smoking meats). Our kiln dried alder logs are also guaranteed to have low moisture content (less than 20%).
Choose alder for use in wood burners, fire pits, open fires, log boilers, and other burning set-ups.
