Why burn kiln-dried firewood?
Simply said, kiln-dried firewood helps your fireplace, woodstove or campfire burn more efficiently.
All firewood contains moisture. When logs are first cut the wood is “green” and almost 50% water! Even “seasoned” firewood has a 20-25% moisture content. Greatest Blaze & Co.’s premium kiln-dried firewood has a moisture content of between 8-12%. It will start easier, produce more heat and burn cleaner than any other firewood available on the market.
We use a proprietary kiln drying process that also eliminates insect infestations. Our kiln-dried firewood is certified by the United States Department of Agriculture to be bug-free and spore free. Insects inhabit firewood to use as a shelter and a source of food. Hundreds of different species of insects such as Emerald Ash Bore, Beetles, termites and ants, can reside in green and seasoned firewood. The kilns used to dry our wood operate at an extremely high temperature that far exceeds the USDA requirement. And it’s seasoned for almost double the time of most kiln cycles. The result is that our firewood easily surpasses the “T134-a” requirement of USDA to sell in most quarantined areas of the United States and also surpass the requirements under 6NRCRR section 192.5 for selling firewood in the state of New York.
When you burn green wood the heat produced by combustion must dry the wood before it can burn, using a large percentage of the energy available in the process. Burning green wood results in less heat available for heating or cooking. Green or wet wood can cause smoke problems, odor problems, rapid creosote buildup and possibly chimney fires.
Our kiln-dried firewood is the best on the market. Bug free and clean burning. We will deliver and stack it wherever is most convenient for you. We sell full-face cords and half-face cords. A “face” cord is roughly 1/3 of a full cord of wood (stacked 4’x4’x8′). We can provide a basic rack and weather resistant cover to stack your wood in or build you a custom rack.
Let us provide you with the best firewood on the market and make sure your covered for all your wood burning needs.
