Kiln dried firewood is an energy and equipment intense process to quickly lower the moisture content of freshly cut green wood. Firewood logs are cut, split, packaged and inserted into a massive kiln where the firewood bakes for up to a week. The kilns are typically heated by propane and require a substantial amount of fuel and electricity to ventilate the heated air. Once the process is complete, the firewood is removed from the kiln and loaded another time for delivery.
Kiln dried firewood is extremely expensive due to the intense amount of equipment and fuel it requires. Furthermore, it doesn't consistently dry out every piece of firewood due to the nature of individual tree species. For example, oak will require significantly more time than ash to dry in a kiln. Consequently, it consumes a large amount of non-renewable fuel, which is not friendly to the environment. Does it really make sense to heat dry firewood anyways?
First off, our firewood will have the same or less of a moisture content the kiln dried wood. Secondly, our naturally seasoned firewood will cost on average half the price of kiln dried firewood. We’ve been splitting firewood and refining our drying process passionately for decades and guarantee that our wood is better than kiln dried wood. Your wallet will appreciate it and you’ll be content knowing that every piece you burn is naturally seasoned by the sun. The way it’s suppose to be.
