We split, stack, measure and set out in the field to air dry on crated pallets that we build. For the 2020/2021 season our hardwood firewood will be mostly maple with a mix of birch. Wood that is smaller that 4 inches across are usually left round (not split).

Pallet crates are $10.00 each and a refund of $5 per pallet crate is provided upon return of the pallet. 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). A short bed will not stack in a 1/2 cord unless you have side boards installed to raise the height of the truck bed.

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 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.

    I saw your video of splitting in the rain. The hard hat appears to have a light mount on the front which would be very helpful for my needs. Could I trouble you to share the brand of the hard hat?
    Thank you
