Wood is where it is at !

Whether I am snuggled in front of the fireplace in the living room, or spending time at my beach cabin, In my opinion, there simply is nothing better than the feel of a good wood fire. The heat that penetrates the room from a true wood burning stove is perfect for warming the bones. I will never be without the ability to make a fire for heat in my home.  I remember several years running when our power was out for an extensive period- We were so miserable….. EXCEPT in the room where the fire was burning. Ahhhh….. thank goodness for the wood stacked neatly on the side of the garage.

As we head into another winter season, don’t’ forget to get your clean, dry, perfectly spilt hardwood from our fantastic selection at the “yard”. We have the very finest quality of Juniper, Lodgepole, and premium hardwoods available for u-haul or delivery to you home.

Be sure to review the best operating practices for burning in your home:

  • Burn only clean, dry, and seasoned wood that has been split and dried for at least 6 months.
  • Burn hardwood rather than softwoods. Hardwoods are denser and burn more slowly and evenly, which produces less smoke. Hardwoods also provide more heat energy.
  • Never burn garbage, trash, plastics, rubber, petroleum products, paints, solvents, charcoal/coal, or treated woods. Burning these materials can be toxic and extremely harmful. These toxins can also foul catalytic combustors and flues.
  • Burn small, hot fires instead of large, smoldering fires.
  • Use small pieces of wood and do not overload the appliance.
  • Watch the chimney for smoke. Properly burning fires should give off only a wisp of white steam. The darker and thicker the smoke, the more pollutants the fire emits, and the more fuel it wastes.

Do not burn wood when the air quality is poor.
