Firewood Storage Tips


The storage of your firewood is important

If you have a purpose built well ventilated fire wood shed, or store your wood externally under a car port or lean-to, under a house on piles or under a deck, your wood will continue to dry where it is stored. These methods of storage allow wood to keep drying right through winter as any wind or heat is always being used to your advantage.

For those storing their wood in closed buildings, you need to be organised early in the season. We always recommend that you stack your wood in single rows outside and down the sides of your storage area if possible. Leave it outside as long as possible while the weather is good. This will maximise the performance of your wood for winter.

We appreciate that not everybody is able to do the above. So it is important that when you make contact you remind us of your situation. We will note on your file that your wood must be dry enough to store away immediately.

Or we can store wood for you in the storage crates described above to be deliver later in the winter when you require it.
