Birch logs are the ideal choice for newcomers and many casual users because they are a quick and easy way to get your fire roaring. There is no doubt that kiln dried birch logs are excellent firewood, as they quickly catch fire and will warm your house sooner than any other hardwood species.
This makes them perfect for people who mainly use their stove or log burner in the evenings or during the weekend. You’ll find that birch logs burn slightly quicker as they are not as dense as oak or ash.
This means they release the heat more quickly, so very little kindling is needed. Here’s a top tip that will help you to start your fire. Instead of using any firelighters, just pull the bark of the birch away, because the oils contained in it help the logs to catch fire with just a little kindling.
