Searching online for seasoned hardwood logs for your log fire?
Our love of domestic log burners is driving demand for firewood, yet so many of the logs bought by home owners these days come from the big DIY sheds which only seem to sell imported, unseasoned, low grade, softwood logs.
Phil Holt & Son is a local timber and firewood merchant based just outside of Harpenden, Hertfordshire; a firewood merchant that has been felling trees, seasoning wood and cutting logs for firewood for over 30 years.
We're an established, traditional family business and we deliver logs direct to homes throughout Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and into Essex and north London.
We are unlike the big DIY sheds as we ourselves manage local woodlands, enabling us to produce the best hardwood logs possible. Once felled, we transport the timber to our yards in Hertfordshire where the timber is air-dried (seasoned) for 2-4 years. Once an order for logs has been placed, the timber is then cut into logs.
We believe that buying low grade firewood from the big DIY sheds or from petrol station forecourts is a waste of money - you may as well set light to pound notes in your log burner, open fire or stove instead of logs.
A price comparison, log-for-log, proves that buying small bags of softwood logs is a false economy but when you buy firewood direct from us you're making two kinds of saving - not only are you saving cash but you're also saving our native woodlands. Phil Holt & Son fells trees from sustainable sources and seasons logs for 2-4 years.
In 2016 Phil Holt & Son introduced larch logs into our range of log deliveries. Thanks to its ease of processing we're able to introduce larch logs as a cheaper alternative to our traditional hardwood firewood deliveries with typical savings of a little under 10%.
Online ordering is the fastest way to arrange a delivery of logs by us direct to your home. We're a traditional business and we're still able to take payment upon delivery. We make our regular deliveries on Thursday, Fridays and Saturdays - although we're experiencing exceptional demand right now and our deliveries are typically 14/21 days after order. If you have any questions, please do phone us on 01582 767868. Thank you.
