Springtime Newsletter: Firewood Storage Tips and Preparing for Fall

Greetings, Homeowners and Outdoor Enthusiasts!

Spring has sprung, and with it comes a flurry of activity in our gardens and outdoor spaces. As we bid farewell to the chill of winter and welcome the warmth of the sun, it’s the perfect time to prepare for the seasons ahead. In this edition of our newsletter, we’ll be focusing on essential tips for firewood storage, why it’s prime time to order for fall, and the importance of tree removal and tree limb pruning during this vibrant season.

1. Firewood Storage Tips:

With the arrival of spring, it’s tempting to forget about firewood until the cooler months return. However, proper firewood storage is crucial year-round to ensure you have seasoned, dry wood ready for those cozy nights by the fire. Here are some tips to keep your firewood in top condition:

  • Elevate and Cover: Store firewood off the ground on a raised platform or pallet to prevent moisture from seeping in. Cover the top of the stack only with a tarp or breathable cover to shield it from rain and snow while still allowing for airflow.
  • Rotate Stock: Use the oldest wood first by rotating your stockpile. This ensures that your firewood stays dry and seasoned, reducing the risk of mold or rot.
  • Ventilation: Proper airflow is essential for keeping firewood dry and preventing mold growth. Avoid stacking wood too tightly together and leave space between logs to allow for ventilation.

2. Order Now for Fall:

While the warmth of spring fills the air, it’s the ideal time to plan ahead for the cooler months. By ordering your firewood now, you can secure high-quality seasoned wood and avoid the last-minute rush when temperatures drop. Plus, early ordering often means better availability. Don’t wait until the leaves start to turn—secure your supply of firewood today and enjoy peace of mind all year round.

3. Tree Removal and Tree Limb Pruning:
