If large quantities of wood are needed for home heating the decision probably tilts toward seasoned firewood purchased way in advance, and we respect that decision. It makes sense and a different company would be the one to contact since all we provide is kiln-dried it is a different business model than what we do.

Why we fell our wood is best

All the factors listed above gives you the start to the picture. But that it does not communicate is the attitude of the company and how we do business. Year round full-time focus on good burning firewood is what we do. We have never run out and keep increasing our capacity. Then we back it up with our money back firewood guarantee. Who in Boston backs their offer with that? This is putting our money where your mouth is.

Companies that generate cut wood convert it to firewood so that they eliminate a disposal cost and convert the wood to firewood that they have to get rid of before the next season or they will get jammed up for space. They are tree services, nurseries, mulch suppliers, landscapers, land clearing companies have the wood as a necessary evil, not their focus. These companies may not have alternative outlets for the wood. We only get the good wood for burning.

Lots to choose from boosts our quality

large stock piles of wood small DSC 9272All of our firewood comes from trees that are professionally harvested and supervised by professional foresters to protect the environment and promote regrowth. Almost all of the woods in New England have been totally deforested in the past. Now you would hardly know it which shows how this is a renewable resource and now is managed for sustainability. The change from a wood-fired rail and marine fuel removed the pressure on the forests.  In the selective cutting and thinning, the logs that are best for firewood. They are pulled out of the total flow of wood to be processed for firewood. The wood is selected for highest value and best use. The cut logs are sorted by the right hardwood species, size, quality,  to get only the very best logs to be processed for firewood. They then go to be stockpiled at the wood processor to be cut for firewood before drying. 

Firewood Processing

A big part of getting a fair measure of wood is based on consistently cutting the wood to the correct length of 16".  An inch off each piece of wood in a cord can add up to reducing the volume of wood three percent and is not fair to the customer. The whole issue of measuring wood accurately happens in the whole flow of wood from the forest to the fireplace. We do the final sorting of the wood when it reaches us to make sure it is the right length.

Clean Wood Handling

single bin small 20160301 151718 EditFrom word processor forward in the process the wood is kept up off the ground and under cover so it stays clean, dry and away from dirt and mud. After being cut to size the wood is loaded by conveyor into metal bins that have legs on them and be able to stack the bins. The working area is all paved to also help keep things clean. The interesting little-known fact is the wood never gets touched directly by human hands. It is all done with hydraulics every step of the way till we sort it. Amazing what it would take if the equipment was not available. Bringing wood into the house that has been split and then exposed to mud and bugs just transfers the contamination into customers home. 

Kiln Drying of Firewood

bins kiln dried firewood loading kiln smallPassing wood through a kiln does not make for high-quality firewood. Our wood in the kiln has a sensor buried inside sample logs communicating with the control room to monitor temperature and moisture making sure the wood is dried like you would check a turkey cooking with a thermometer to cook it right. Airflow around the wood is controlled in multiple directions to facilitate drying removing the dense fog that is created and the sap flowing across the bottom of the kiln from the wood. The floor is fitted with drains to pull the water out. Until you see how much water comes running out of a loaded kiln proves that tons of water are in fact in the wood. For those who have not seen a kiln up close, it really is a big oversized oven that holds a lot of wood. Some run on wood waste others are run on propane, but both dry the wood so it burns well. When drying is complete it is stockpiled for delivery.

After the kiln

Storage of the wood is undercover to keep any rain or snow off it since so much effort is put into drying the wood. Next, it comes to use and gets stored in our heated garage for storage and wrapping in bundles prior to the firewood concierge having the firewood boy deliver it to you and stack it. Part of our quality in the product is you know how we go about getting wood for people in the Boston area and make sure it is right.

Random Sampling

We go through the wood periodically with a moisture meter to make sure the wood is as dry as it should be. It is very rare that there is a problem we test the wood both externally and by splitting pieces to check the internal moisture content. The whole effort is to keep the wood the best possible firewood in Boston. Call Paul at 781-254-2773 and as someone used to say "try it and you will like it" then we add or your money back.
