USDA Certified Heat Treated Firewood

Heat treated refers to a certifiable and closely regulated treatment to disinfest wood.  Heat treated does not reflect on the moisture content of the firewood. The purpose of heat treatment, is that the internal wood temperature has reached levels high enough and for long enough to destroy pests and pathogens on or in the wood.  This treatment prevents the spread of invasive species and protects your home from pests.

What is the difference between Heat Treated Kiln Dried, Heat Treated Seasoned, Naturally Seasoned and Unseasoned?

Our Heat Treated Kiln Dried Firewood remains in the kiln until it has a moisture content of less than 10%.   Our Heat Treated Seasoned Firewood is dried prior to heat treatment and/or processed in the kiln until it has a moisture content of less than 20%.  We offer these two options in the heat treated woods so that you can choose your preferred moisture level.  We understand how important this is on a personal level.

Naturally Seasoned Firewood and Unseasoned Firewood are not heat treated.  However, we do omit wood with visible pests or molds.   This wood is dried naturally in the sun and wind and sheltered from the rain and snow. Unseasoned Firewood will have varying moisture content levels above 20%.  When the moisture content reading is below 20%, it is then Naturally Seasoned Firewood inventory.

All options are hardwoods and safe for cooking and indoor fireplaces.   Our firewood is cut uniformly and to manageable size.

What is a cord?

A Cord is a unit of measurement for firewood.  When a full Cord of firewood is stacked tightly it is about 4' x 8' x 4' and 128 cubic feet.   

The exact number of logs depends on cut size.  

Firewood is sold in fractions of a Cord, a Full Cord or as bundles.

Firewood

Freshly fallen trees, or "green wood", will have a moisture reading of well over 30%,  depending on factors, like, tree species and the time of year it was cut.    Seasoned firewood has a reading below 20%.  Our Seasoned Firewood does not leave the shop until it has reached a reading between 15-19%.  A moisture meter is not a common household tool, but there are other ways to check the dryness of your firewood.  Tapping two pieces of seasoned firewood together will make a distinct and crisp hollow sound.  Green wood will make a dull, muffled noise.  Seasoned wood also will begin "checking" or cracking on the ends.  Because moisture adds weight to the wood, there is also a significant difference in the weight of logs as they dry.

A hot, roaring fire with minimal smoke, does not depend solely on seasoned firewood.  It is important to start and feed your fire properly.   If you find that your firewood will not catch fire or is only smoldering, consider all of the factors before assuming that your firewood is not seasoned.

Even when using a firestarter or a gas starter, you must also use kindling.  Kindling is small, thin pieces of wood that connects the fire from the starter to the logs.  If kindling is not used, you may find that the logs will only smolder and not properly catch fire.  Store bought starters, homemade starters, tinder or a gas starter, are not intended to directly light the firewood logs.  Of course, it is possible, but your fire will begin to start when the firewood reaches about 600 degrees.  Firewood logs will have trouble reaching this point without the aide of kindling and proper oxygen flow.

Arrange your logs properly to allow air to flow between the logs and between the logs and the starter.  If the firewood logs are placed tightly together over the starter, you will find that the logs will likely only smolder.  There are several suggested layouts for building a fire.

Stacking and storing your firewood properly is also important.  Choose a location that is protected from moisture, rain and snow and has good airflow.  Do not place wood directly on soil.  This will help the firewood stay dry and prevent rotting.
