THE FIREWOOD EXPERIENCE
Being around a fire with loved ones is an experience many never forget. Our firewood is dried longer than anyone else. It burns easier and lasts longer. This year put your feet up, relax, and enjoy the moment with seasoned firewood from “The Firewood Depot.”
What is Firewood?
Firewood is split into two categories: hardwoods and softwoods. Hardwoods burn more slowly and generate more heat than softwoods because they have less energy (carbon) per volume. However, when comparing weight instead of volume, the amount of energy is the same for all hardwoods and softwoods; what mostly determines how much energy firewood has is its moisture content. The drier the wood, the less water it contains, meaning there’s more available energy to be used for heating or cooking.
Firewood is a sustainable resource, meaning that you won’t have to rely on energy companies or be affected by power outages during storms. You’ll stay warm and safe in the event of a blackout. Additionally, firewood is much more cost-effective than other fuel sources like electric heat, gas heat, and oil (Research Institute of Sustainable Energy). Not only does burning wood save you money, but it also creates ambiance and radiant heat, unlike any other source!
When you buy firewood from your neighborhood, you’re helping out regional businesses. Furthermore, wood processed and burned as stove fuel is Carbon dioxide emission-free; in other words, it doesn’t increase greenhouse gases or contribute to global warming as some people think. In fact, if we let firewood rot on the ground in forested areas releases the same amount of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere as burning it does!
