Lord of the trees have been providing firewood logs to addresses throughout Edinburgh and the Lothians since 2003. All of our firewood logs are from sustainable sources in the local area.
Hardwoods burn longer than soft woods and work better for overnight heating. They will usually have coals left over in the morning so you can quickly restart your fire. Hardwood fire wood is pre-split 100% hard wood, fully seasoned and ready to burn in handy (m3) bulk bags.

Hot burning, an ideal accompaniment to slower burning hardwood logs. Perfect for getting a fire hot quickly on those cold winter evenings. Best in a wood burner and not recommended for open fire. Click here to buy soft wood logs.
Edinburgh is a Smoke Control Area but appropriate fuels can be burned provided certain conditions are met.
From the Edinburgh Council Website “Some solid fuel stoves, ovens and boilers have been approved for use in smoke control areas. These appliances are exempt from the provisions of the Clean Air Act 1993 if they are installed and used properly.”
One of the most important things to consider when burning wood is its moisture content. Wood with a high moisture content burns poorly and produces a lot of smoke. All of our wood is seasoned in our heated barn for two years to reduce the moisture content well below required levels.
We supply and deliver firewood throughout the Edinburgh and East Lothian area.
Main delivery times for fire wood are Saturday AM or PM but other times are available. We'll call or email to arrange a suitable time.
We are also able to supply bulk bags of seasoned wood chip. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
We recently installed a wood-fired boiler which produces forced hot air for drying.
Early experiments are promising and we'll soon be able to offer kiln-dried firewood for sale which will burn even more readily than our seasoned wood.

We split all of our firewood logs into hand-sized pieces which are ready to go straight onto the fire or into the wood burner.
Seasoning firewood logs involves storing cut the wood in a cool dark place to allow moisture within the wood to evaporate. When logs are properly seasoned they burn more efficiently meaning more heat and less smoke. We season our hardwood logs for at least 2 years.
Hard wood firewood logs burn hotter and for longer than softwood. They also release less smokey resin which can cause a dangerous build up in flues and chimneys. All of our firewood logs are from hard wood trees.
All of our firewood is the by-product of necessary tree work
