Understanding the weight of raw timber immediately after harvesting is a critical step for anyone involved in the logging industry or those utilising firewood for energy. Our Wood Log Weight Calculator is engineered to provide you with accurate weight estimates for logs in their natural, round form. This tool is indispensable for calculating transportation loads, estimating potential timber yield, and managing stock levels for firewood sales.

For those in forestry and agriculture, precisely gauging the weight of freshly cut logs ensures that vehicles are loaded safely and within legal limits. It also helps in predicting the amount of usable material that will be available once the wood has been processed. In the context of firewood, weight calculations assist in determining the value of wood before it enters the market, ensuring fair pricing and proper inventory management.

The moisture content of wood, which significantly influences its weight, is a variable that cannot be overlooked. A log's weight can fluctuate based on its water content, affecting everything from the drying process to its burning efficiency as firewood. For a deeper understanding of this factor, read our comprehensive guide on how moisture content impacts timber weight.
