About our wood

Seasoned hardwoods:

Seasoned firewood has been in our yard at least one year (usually longer) before it is sold. The logs are cut and split onto the concrete pad in January and February. That gives the wood seven months of split time before the burning season. The best time to purchase seasoned wood is in August and September when it is most dry. Usually in late September or October, weather becomes very rainy. That starts to wet the wood in the pile again. Most veteran wood burners know this is a short lived problem once the wood is stacked and covered at their yard. But nonetheless we want people to understand what they are buying. One important note to keep in mind is where you will store your wood. It needs to be kept in a sunny well ventilated area. If it is stacked in the shade where the moss grows, it will get and or stay wet. If there is an extended period of wet weather that we feel creates too much of a hardship we will suspend the sale of seasoned wood. Usually sometime in January we will stop selling seasoned wood because of ice and snow in the pile. Please plan accordingly. Again we feel honesty is the best policy!

Our premium blend is 90% or more of Oak with up to 10% Hickory. This mix is most sought after by fulltime wood burners, for the best long burning BTU output.

We also offer an “average” grade, which is a mix of all hardwoods. The casual burner or fireplace burner will like this mix better. It is easier to start, with a faster, hotter burn. This grade is more in line with what most wood dealers are selling and allows us to be more competitive in that market.

All of our wood products are cut to a 16″ average length. We try our best to keep this consistent. There can be the occasional 17″ piece in the pile. This is good for 99% of the stoves out there but please take this into consideration if you have a stove that is “maxed out” at 16″ capacity.


We offer firewood delivered on our arranged tractor trailer or yours. Our equipment can safely and efficiently screen and load a trailer in 45 minutes or less. Please contact us for your needs and specific pricing.

Our goal is to keep our equipment maintained and up to date to provide dependable loading and delivery schedules.

All wood is screened at time of processing and again when loaded out to insure clean delivered product. We waste nothing. The chips collected are ground up and used for natural mulch.

We always have wood!! All seasoned wood is cut and split onto a concrete pad that is over a half acre in size! Clean wood on clean storage means dirt-free product delivered to your door.

Local deliveries are made with our 3 cord capacity truck. The wood is always screened and loaded by conveyor. The truck is divided into three equal compartments, so we can deliver 1 – 2 or 3 cord orders in one stop.

Our motto is “if you like our product, tell a friend. If you don’t, tell us”
