Advantages of Kiln Dried Firewood
Firewood Moisture Content
Cornell University says that the biggest quality factor in firewood is moisture.Most firewood dealers sell green, or freshly cut, wood, which could have a moisture content of 100% or more (100% moisture content means half the weight of the wood is water). Water in the wood has to be heated and forced out of the wood before it can burn. That is why often you will see bubbling and hissing at the ends of a wet piece of firewood as it burns. The water can only move lengthwise in firewood logs not sideways since all the wood fiber goe horizontally.
Seasoned wood takes at least 12 months or more to reach a moisture content below 20%. This takes a lot of space and planning ahead. If in doubt take a look at your supplier's yard in May to July and if there is no wood stacked up then you certainly are not getting a low moisture really seasoned wood. Most seasoned firewood suppliers run out by the time it gets cold so there is little chance the wood is being seasoned 12 to 18 months to get a good moisture content. In the Boston Area, real estate costs are just too high to tie up space for a low margin bulk commodity like firewood. To save space if it is stack real high it will not dry because air can not get to it.
Our kiln dried wood is has a target moisture content of about 15%. This makes for a fire that is easy to light without a lot of kindling, having to fuss with it and the wood will burn brightly. It is not so dry that it burns too fast.
Kiln dried firewood It is a controlled product that is not tied to the weather and does not takes a long time to produce.

In days a piece of wood can be turned into great burning logs that have just been cut. This means that we can handle the surge in demand that comes from an unusually cold snowing winter.

With controlled heat to the center of the piece of firewood, we know that any bugs are killed and are not hibernating in the wood ready to come out when brought into your house. Most homes are not easily infested but who wants to take the chance.
Handling our wood does not include being on the ground at all. Prior to cutting to length, the wood is stacked in piles up off the ground to help keep it clean. Once the wood is cut on the wood process it goes directly into metal baskets. These loaded baskets of wood are then loaded into the kiln to dry them out to the right moisture content. After running through the kiln the dried wood is then stored inside on paved floors so no mud or dirt is added in handling. Some slight amount may be there from the logging operation but it is minimal. Prior to delivery, the pieces of wood are screened through a large tumbling to pull out any of the dirt and small pieces of wood that are loose. This ensures that the pieces are clean and uniform is a set size range.
