Northeast Firewood: Firewood, Pellets & Coal
  Kiln-Dried Firewood

We guarantee that our kiln dried firewood is ready to burn when delivered to you. We dry our firewood in one of four kilns especially built to dry firewood. Northeast Nursery prides itself on utilizing the entire log; the kilns are fired by sawdust and chips generated from the splitting process. Even scraps of bark removed during splitting are put aside for grinding into mulch--another product offered by Northeast Nursery.

Once the log length firewood is in the yard the logs are placed on a conveyor and enter the mill. There they are cut, split and dumped into pre-measured baskets. The baskets then go into the kilns.

The wood remains in the kilns for 2-3 days at 150-200 degrees; removing over 1000 pounds of water from each cord. This in turn increases the firewoods' burning efficiency by nearly 1 million BTU's per cord over green firewood, and increases the heat value by 25%.

After kiln drying the wood is stored under cover in a cooling shed until it is delivered. ONCE DELIVERED KILN DRIED FIREWOOD SHOULD BE STORED UNDER COVER IN A DRY AREA WITH ADEQUATE VENTILATION. Kiln-drying insures you insect free, cleaner burning firewood with less creosote buildup and it is available year round.
