Creekdside Total Maintenance deals with Hardwoods such as Oak and properly season the wood before delivering to you.  Up to half the weight of a freshly cut log is water. After proper seasoning the water content is reduced to less than 20 per cent.  If you are going spend hundreds of dollars on firewood, it's essential to KNOW that the wood you are buying REALLY IS seasoned!

Creekside Total Maintenance delivers and stacks the heaviest loads.  Most face cords contain approximately 200 logs, we give you approximately 260 well seasoned logs!

Seasoned wood looks  dark, or gray when compared to green wood  - but if you split a piece of seasoned wood - it's WHITE on the inside. It's brittle, or gnarly. It has cracks running through each piece, and a lot of little cracks on the inner rings.

Unseasoned wood has a wet, fresh looking center, with lighter (drier-looking) wood near the edges or ends which have been exposed since cutting. When firewood is very fresh, the bark will be tightly attached. Avoid these hassles at all costs! When you get cold, you'll be miserable if your firewood does not produce the heat you need. Only well seasoned wood produces pleasant, trouble free heat.

FIREWOOD TIPS

Do NOT cover your wood with a tarp, or you will prohibit evaporation! Use a shed, or buy a prefab wood crib.

Burn hardwoods, they are more dense and weigh more so you actually get more for your money with hardwoods.  In fact, you may get almost twice the fire for the money!  Hardwoods are more dense, providing more available fuel in the same space, so hardwoods burn longer and burn very hot.

Oak is one of the best fire wood types. It requires a good deal of seasoning time (as much as 2 years) but then is a good slow burning wood with lots of heat and a small flame.

Always keep a "flame" on your fire - a smoking or smoldering fire is a cold and inefficient fire..and also produces pollutants and creosote (tar in the chimney).

Add more wood before the fire gets too low...this will assure the continuation of your hard-earned fire.

Don't get caught with cold air and no firewood! Call us for delivery and stacking so that you are ready for those cold nights!
