HOW TO PREPARE FIREWOOD
Four Steps of preparing Firewood:
1. Split wood for faster drying.
2. Stack wood split side down and away from buildings.
3. Cover top of the stack to protect it from rain or snow.
4. Store and dry softwood for at least 6 months and hardwood for at least 12 months.
How to use a moisture meter:
Wet wood can create excessive smoke which is wasted fuel. Burning dry, seasoned firewood with a moisture content of 20% or less can save money and help reduce harmful air pollution- indoors and out.
