3 Things You Should Know Before Buying Firewood

From outdoor ovens to campfires, woods stoves to indoor fireplaces, having excellent firewood is a necessity for great memories! That’s why we recommend doing your research before buying firewood.

There are a few key questions to ask any firewood provider before ponying up your hard earned money. Whether you’re heating your home for the winter or entertaining friends, here are the three things you need to know before buying firewood this fall. Get in touch with more questions!

1. Is The Firewood Safe?

If you’re using an indoor wood stove or wood fireplace, creosote is definitely a concern. Creosote is released by burning wood, but wet wood releases much more of it into your chimney and flue, increasing the risk of fire.

With a certified arborist on board, we make sure that your wood is properly dried to reduce the amount of creosote and risk of fire. Definitely ask whether your firewood provider has a certified arborist on the team, and how wet their wood is.

2. Is The Firewood Seasoned?

Another thing to ask is how – and how long – the firewood has been seasoned.

Ron’s Tree Service and Firewood ensures you receive perfectly seasoned firewood. This means it’s been cut, split, dried and kept out of the weather for approximately two years to remove most of the moisture from it. The total moisture will be below 20% after our seasoning process, which makes for excellent burning.

3. Is The Firewood Delivered & Stacked?

Will they deliver the firewood and stack it for you? There is a lot of labor involved in transporting and stacking firewood, especially without the right tools and experience.
