Tips for buying Wood Logs
Buy seasoned wood: Depending on your purpose to buy wood logs, you need to consider the moisture content as a factor while buying. For instance, logs felled in summer or spring season have a relatively higher moisture content compared to those felled in winter.
If you are buying wood logs for firewood, make sure to purchase logs that have a moisture content of 20% or less.
Also, you need to choose between hardwood or softwood depending on your probable uses. Softwood is softer and may have lower density and durability than hardwood.
