While many people associate firewood with the fall and winter months, there are plenty of warm-weather activities that can be improved with a good fire. Bonfires, campfires, and barbecues are popular outdoor pastimes for folks in Phoenix, and the team at Lehnhoff’s Supply is pleased to offer firewood delivery for those looking to stock up. Ask yourself these questions and keep these tips in mind before you stock up on firewood this summer in Phoenix.
What Will You Use the Firewood For?
The first step to making a smart firewood purchase is knowing what you plan to use the firewood for. This can help you determine how much wood to get, what kind you need, and when to get it. If you plan on cooking over a fire, species like hickory and oak can be good choices. However, if you plan on making fires for heat or recreation, the type of wood may not matter as much.
Do You Have a Storage Plan?
Before you place an order for firewood, you should know where you are going to store it. Maryland summers can get very wet and humid, and keeping your fuel dry is critical. Consider storing your fuel on a rack or in a shed. Marylanders can also stack wood outside. To limit mold growth and rot, make sure that outdoor piles sit atop a raised surface, are covered by a tarp, and allow for airflow between logs.
Think About Getting Firewood for Winter
If you are placing an order for firewood this summer, you may want to consider stocking up for winter as well. Many people choose to season their firewood over the summer so that it burns well during the fall and winter, and people who have the storage space or do not have terribly high needs for fuel may find that it is worth it to order their logs now. Whether you rely on a wood-burning stove for heat or simply enjoy making a campfire every now and then, contact Lehnhoff’s Supply for high-quality firewood!
