Kiln Dried Alder Versus Seasoned Alder

The key difference between Kiln dried alder logs and seasoned logs is their moisture content and the way they have been dried. As the name suggests kiln dried means the logs burn brighter and easier than seasoned logs due to reduced levels of moisture. This means that lighting your fire is easier and quicker with kiln dried logs and you can enjoy a brighter, larger flame.

Kiln dried logs also tend to burn at a higher temperature than seasoned logs making them the log of choice if you want to heat up a large space or are using them for an outdoor heater.
