1. Firewood must be correctly cut and dry (no higher than 20% moisture). This is crucial to getting the best out of your wood burning stove. How you store your firewood will be key to this, it needs to be split and stored in the open with a roof or top cover, for at least one spring and summer period, and we would recommend twice that long or even longer. So, buy your firewood at least a year or two ahead.
