5 Reasons To Get Your Firewood From A Certified Arborist

From campfires to wood stoves, indoor fireplaces to outdoor ovens, having excellent firewood is a necessity for great experiences! That’s why we recommend getting your firewood from a certified arborist.

A certified arborist is a professional that has been certified by the International Society of Arboriculture. Let’s look at the best reasons to rely on Ron’s Tree Service and Firewood, and our certified arborist to get you excellent firewood. Get in touch when you’re ready!


1. 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.


2. 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.


3. Delivered & Stacked

If a firewood provider – like Ron’s Tree Service and Firewood – has a certified arborist on board, you know they believe in quality. When you order firewood from Ron’s, we not only get you the highest quality firewood possible, we also deliver and stack it for you, saving you tons of labor!


4. Clean

Wet wood not only releases more creosote, it also releases more smoke and soot in general, along with harmful pollutants. This can color your glass in front of your fireplace, the brick on your fireplace and is also harder on the environment. A certified arborist works to reduce pollutants, by making sure your wood is as dry as possible.


5. Easy

Because of moisture needing more energy to be burned, it can also take longer to ignite. This can be a huge pain if you rely on burning wood to heat your home. Even once you ignite green, unseasoned firewood, it won’t burn as well or produce as much heat. Lighting professional dried firewood from a certified arborist is much easier and more effective!
