Services & Products in a Nutshell / News 

FROM WOOD TO WARMTH.webp

Linnorie Firewood Services (LFS) is your Supplier / Merchant for Logs in Aberdeenshire and Moray. LFS is one of the few all year round and full-time working firewood producers to sell best quality Hardwood and Softwood and to provide a professional, local service to keep customers warm during the complete heating season.

The roundwood / timber origins from the nearby forests of Aberdeenshire and Moray. The logs are well seasoned and ready to burn with moisture contents less than 20%. Green logs to fill the customer's sheds for the next heating period are during certain periods also available. We will promote such opportunities. 

LFS sells as by-products gardening products such as bark, compost, mulch and wood chips and also sells shavings for animal bedding (at the moment there is a waiting list of potential customers). LFS does not sell roundwood / timber. 

LFS is located near the Huntly roundabout and delivers to Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire and Moray. During the opening hours you are welcome for self-collection.

News 

 

Dear Customers

The world is getting mad. Timber is nowadays an international commodity. Since last year the timber / roundwood prices went up 22% and you realised yourself the increase in fuel prices. Others already had to increase their prices for firewood some months ago.

 

LFS avoided to do so during the pandemic and as long as it was possible. We feel sorry but as the tax man does not classify us as a charity we need to adjust the prices for firewood and delivery from October 1st.

The product prices for bark, mulch and shavings will remain the same for the time being.

Naturally seasoned vs. kiln dried

Quite often we are asked: "Should I buy kiln dried logs?"

Here are some facts: 

  • 1kg of softwood oven dry has a calorific value of 5.3kWh
    (theoretical moisture content MC of 0%)

  • 1kg of firewood MC 20% or lower is about 4.3kWh

  • to kiln 1kg needs approximately 1kWh
     

  • Natural drying helps to fight global warming because

    1. No additional energy is used

    2. Logs are always trying to reach a equilibrium with the ambient air. To evaporate water from the logs during dry weather, the needed energy is taken from the ambient air, which becomes cooler.
      So if you walk through the shed on a really warm day  
      you can feel the colder ambience.

  • The reverse process happens when the kiln dried or seasoned logs are exposed to a ambient air that contains higher humidity (fog, periods of rain). The moisture content is raising again.

  • Years ago we experienced that kiln dried products shipped by container were affected by condensation. That is the reason why these days we only sell local grown logs and we do not sell kiln dried firewood.


Therefore kiln dried firewood may be an option if the products are not stored outside at the merchant's or at your premises (not even if sheltered from rain) and if you don't mind about the additional energy that is used.

Upgraded Delivery Possibilities

It seems that periods of fine and wet weather are lasting much longer these days. This means that we have to deliver bigger quantities in a short time. That is the reason we have now two delivery vans: 
 

  • a tipper truck and

  • a dropside truck with a crane (reach 4m). At the customer premises the bags can be just dropped, put on a customer pallet or emptied with the crane if the customer wishes us to do so.

LFS buys Timber HW / SW

LFS does not sell any timber as this would be very inefficient (loading, haulage, unloading at our yard and the same again afterwards at your premises!). LFS is always interested to buy timber of good quality. Ideally

  • 3m length and  up to 420mm / 16.5''

  • but we may also be interested in longer and bulkier timber

  • LFS has a 10t timber trailer and can collect timber in the Huntly area.

Happy Customer

This customer will have a quiet summer once the logs are in their compartments and waiting to cheer up the hearts of the family once it will get colder again. 

Projects

We are now in our 7th year of operation and every year we had to turn away potential customers to keep our existing, regular and loyal customers as happy as possible under the given weather conditions.

LFS converted the yard and is now able to buy and pre-season much bigger quantities of roundwood / timber, as well as to store processed logs to become seasoned.
