Clearview Firewood Service

Clearview Firewood Service

Admin User - 23 Jan 2020

Clearview Stoves offer a specialist firewood service. Our fuel comes from well managed sustainable forests situated as close to the factory as possible to reduce transport mileage. It is mainly as hardwood thinnings which are produced when established woodlands are thinned to allow better or healthier trees room to grow for the future. 

All our wood is cut and split automatically using one of Europe’s largest firewood processing machines. A special automatic optimising system reduces the quantity of off cuts that are unavoidable with conventional systems, allowing us to produce perfectly sized and split logs in 10”, 15” and 18” lengths for your Clearview Stove.

A large 70Kw solar panel array on the wood shed roof provides sufficient electricity to allow us to run the machine, making the whole process almost carbon neutral. 

Clearview firewood is usually packed in big bulk bags for easy handling (900mm x 900mm x 1600mm high). A ‘bag’ contains a similar volume to a typical ‘one tonne’ pickup load. Because these bags are tall and flexible they contain considerably more logs than a rigid container of the same volume and approximately double that of a standard builder’s bulk bag and can be used many times.  Logs up to 10” and 15” can also be supplied in standard builder’s bulk bags (900mm x 900mm x 1000mm).

We regularly supply and deliver with wood orders one of our wood sheds or wood stores for no extra charge. All or wood stores are made from locally grown and treated softwood. We fully build each store before dismantling and then flat packing for easy handling and delivery. Stores can be reassembled quickly and come with sturdy galvanised feet to provide a strong and lasting footing.



Within a 60m radius of the factory

Delivery is usually made by a small lorry fitted with a 5 meter reach crane. Please make sure your access is suitable prior to ordering as we cannot undertake to move fuel beyond the reach of the crane. 

Our minimum order is two bags. Maximum order is eight bags. We have a narrow truck for deliveries that require a smaller vehicle. The maximum load on this lorry is six bags. 

To reduce transport costs why not consider sharing a load with a neighbour.

Firewood Facts

Although multi fuel by design, all our stoves are wood burning by nature. We are passionate about wood and encourage customers to use only wood, wherever practical. 


Firewood is usually measured by loose volume rather than weight because the drier the log, the less it will weigh. The rectangular shape of firewood does not compact well, so a flexible container or bag will contain more than a rigid container of the same theoretical volume.  

Freshly processed

This will be the cheapest and most efficient way to buy our fuel.  With a moisture content of 46% or below, our freshly processed wood fuel will require stacking for one or two years prior to use depending on wood type.

Seasoned wood (below 35% moisture) 

Seasoning is a loose term used to describe various types of storage.  Our seasoned wood has usually been in our yard for one year prior to processing.  One year of seasoning will usually reduce moisture content by 10%. Purchase these logs spring or early summer, stack with good air circulation and they should be good to burn next autumn.

Double seasoned

This is wood which has been processed and stored in giant ventilated cages for a season.  Double seasoning will reduce moisture wood fuel content to below 25%. Double seasoned wood fuel is ideal for immediately, whatever time of year. Much of our double seasoned firewood has a moisture content below 15%.

How much firewood do I require

If you burn your stove for a few hours each evening you may require just three bags per season.  Stoves that are used throughout the winter typically require six plus bags per season. If there is anything you want to know about firewood we can help. Wood is our passion and at the very heart of all we do.

Naturally dried fuel

Naturally dried wood fuel has not been ‘thermally crashed’ and therefore the wood structure will remain tenacious and volatiles and gases will remain intact for gentle release during the combustion process.  Some suppliers are using kilns to speed up the drying process and may imply it is superior to air-dried. Kiln drying does nothing to improve the energy value of wood fuel. Kiln dried wood fuel is normally dried to below 25% (the same as Clearview Timber double seasoned naturally dried fuel).
