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. We also offer kiln dried firewood.
Free delivery! Prices shown are for up to 35 km from our location. Contact us for distances further than that. We can deliver anywhere. If you’re buy-in’, we’re supplin’ ! 🙂

Hardwood Firewood, splits and rounds
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 some birch. Wood that is smaller that 4 inches across are usually left round (not split).
Contact us for your specific sizing requirements.
Check the chart at the bottom of the page that shows BTU ratings for many of the wood species available in Nova Scotia.
Drive thru firewood
Stop in and we can load up firewood stacked on pallets or you can take the wood loose in your vehicle or trailer.
Pallet crates are $20.00 each and a refund of $15 per pallet crate is provided upon return of the pallet so long as its in its original condition. 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.

Quality First and Foremost.
We select each piece of firewood for quality. In the videos 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.
