Calgary Firewood is an online resource for finding the best firewood delivery source in Calgary, Alberta. When purchasing firewood, the most important things to watch out for are:
- The size of your order. A full cord of firewood is 4′x4′x8′ stacked.
- How well is your firewood seasoned? Firewood should be seasoned a minimum of 4-6 months while the wood is split or 2 years if it is in log form. 22% moisture content rating is optimal.
- The species of firewood you are purchasing. Wood such as Cedar and Balsam burn incredibly quick and fast. Although they work great as kindling, burning too much of it in your fireplace will result in increased creosote build up.
- A reliable firewood dealer. Unless you enjoy going through the hassle of finding a new wood dealer every season, we suggest going with the pro’s. In every town you will find some people who sell firewood using Craigslist or Kijiji. Generally most of these people are what the industry calls “fly by night” wood dealers. They have a tendancy to steal their firewood or aquire it illegally and if your deal goes sour, they probably won’t answer their phone.
If you know of a fast, honest and reliable firewood source in the area, please do let us know. We would be happy to post their contact information on our site.
BEST OF LUCK!
