Fire wood is often kept outside to allow it to naturally season, so it may seem natural to store bags of fire wood open to the elements. But when handled incorrectly, even polythene bags can rip and tear. Fire wood stored in poor conditions will re-absorb moisture and deteriorate; eventually the logs may start decomposing.
Bags should be protected
from direct rain
Ensure fire wood is kept off the ground,
possibly stored on a pallet.
Allow air to circulate.
A pallet will let air flow beneath it.
Bags don’t need to be closely covered as
this can lead to sweating.
Do not store fire wood
on moist ground.

Woodsure Ready to Burn logs are already low in moisture, & more readily catch alight. Placing logs or other combustible material too near to heat sources may cause them to ignite.
