A cubic cord is defined as a pile of wood that measures 48 inches high x 48 inches deep x 96 inches long.
We cut, split, sort and stack the firewood into predetermined sized pallet crates to ensure accurate cubic cord measuring. The crates of firewood are then set aside to dry. The drying process causes wood to shrink slightly.
Hardwood Firewood, splits and rounds
We split, stack, measure and set out in the field to air dry on crated pallets that we build.
We also have the capability to kiln dry firewood and kindling.
Drive thru firewood
Stop in with your truck and we can load up firewood stacked on pallets.
32 cu ft spit firewood: $65.00, with pallet crate: $75.00
Pallet crates are $10.00 and a refund of $5 per pallet crate is provided upon return if you plan to keep the crate for the season. A 6-1/2 ft truck bed will fit two pallets. If your truck has one of those aluminum tool boxes, you will only be able to fit 32 cu ft (one pallet).
Some folks like this method of yard pick up because they don’t have the storage space to obtain a full winter’s wood. And if you are on a budget, buying your wood as you need it is helpful.
For campground and seasonal cottages, we can deliver to your location whatever amount you require. We can even offload and re-stack the wood for a small fee.

Quality First and Foremost.
We select each piece of firewood for quality. In the videos below you will see we toss to one side the pieces we find that are rotten or punky. That wood is set aside to dry. We label it as ‘campfire wood’ and is useable for campfires, workshop wood stoves, or even for getting your home fire going with a few pieces of kindling.
32 cu ft campfire wood $50.00, 128 cu ft $185, pallet crates $10 each. Refund of $5 for each crate returned.

Firewood Weights, Energy and Drying Times
