Kiln Dried Firewood

Choose from — full cord • 2/3 cord • 1/3 cord OR 1/9 cord which fits in a standard trunk (let us load it for you).

Our firewood has been “seasoned” by drying in a kiln (a type of high temperature oven). The firewood is essentially baked to force the moisture out.

Advantages of Kiln Dried Firewood……..

  • CLEANER…Less debris /suitable for indoor storage

  • HIGHEST BTU’s of any firewood
  • READY TO BURN — No Waiting! ENJOY!
