There are a few differences between Hardwood and Softwood but both, when properly seasoned can be ideal fuel for your fire or stove. The calorific value per tonne is almost identical, however hardwoods are denser so there will be 25% more burning in a hardwood log. Softwood is much easier to light and burns quickly with intense heat, whereas hardwood burns more steadily and for a longer period of time. Softwood offers great value for money due to its plentiful supply and as demand grows it is a more sustainable option due to its more rapid growth. Unseasoned softwood can result in a more rapid build up of soot or creosote meaning the need for more regular visits from your chimney sweep. It is therefore so important particularly with softwood to ensure the wood is well seasoned.
