They are made to look exactly like real wood, but make enjoying your Martin fireplace quite a lot easier.  These convenient self-igniting fireplace logs are clean, insect free, and yield up to 40% less emissions than traditional wood. Like the bricks used in many conventional wall mounted gas heaters, the logs are made of materials that are fire resistant and hold up well for an extended period of time.
