Sustainable Firewood

There is a chill in the air this morning that makes me start dreaming of autumn walks and winter fires in our wood stove.

Living in the city in a 100x50 ft. lot doesn't allow for a place to grow our own firewood, so we have been on a quest to find someone who harvests firewood sustainably. Last year, the firewood was not harvested sustainably, and it was dumped in the driveway, covered with dirt and had to be stacked.  If we were working a larger piece of land full time, I wouldn't care about needing to stack wood, it would just be part of our normal work day. However, with both of us working full time, any time saver is helpful at this point.

We were able to find someone this year and had 3 cords of wood delivered from Broad Arrow Firewood. It is a mix of several different woods,  stacked on twelve pallets and is ready and waiting to be burned. It needs a bit more seasoning - so we will use the wood we have gathered and what has been given to us that is currently stored in the shed.

Each pallet is wrapped in a netted bag

  1. Now that is cool that you were able to find someone who was willing to do that for you and that is sustainable wood for burning.
