Tips for Seasoning Your Firewood in Ruxton

Tips for Seasoning Your Firewood in Ruxton

Yes, winter is well on its way. That’s why it’s important you start seasoning your firewood.

Hello Ruxton homeowners. It’s almost that time of year again. Yes, winter is well on its way. That’s why it’s important you start seasoning your firewood. You can make your wood last longer and smell better once it’s burning. Just follow some of these excellent tips!

Think Ahead

For best results, you will want to think ahead. Even if you have some firewood leftover from this time last year, that doesn’t mean you need to dispose of it. In fact, you might have left any extras from last year alone. Also, if you want to gather your own firewood, then it’s best to do so in the spring. That means once fall and winter roll around it will be ready to use. If you’re short on time, though, that’s okay too. Ruxton homeowners can put their trust in Lehnhoff Supply for firewood delivery. You can also come by and pick up the supplies you need as well. The remaining firewood from last year will still be good, assuming it hasn’t been waterlogged.

Don’t Leave It

The next step is to keep your firewood well-protected from rain, wind, and other elements. Waterlogged or soaked firewood will do you no good. When you lift it off the ground, this also prevents invasion by insects, bacteria, and fungi that could make your stockpile of wood their new home or food source.

Stack It Properly

Elevating your piles of firewood isn’t enough. You’ll also need to stack it properly. Try using neat rows or X-patterns to air out the wood and remove excess moisture from the morning dew or last night’s rain shower in your Ruxton neighborhood.

Rack It Up

Another easy way to store your firewood before you’re ready to use it is to rack it up. The main difference between this and putting the cords of wood in a standard stack is that you use a rack that enhances the seasoning of the wood.

Think Good Thoughts

This suggestion sounds odd, but good thoughts actually do help. You can spend even more time with your family both inside and outside your Ruxton home. And it also helps teach your kids some responsibility, especially if they want to start up the fire pit or the bonfire without your supervision.
