How to Buy Firewood With Confidence
5 Tips You Should Know First
(see November notice on right)
1) Is it really seasoned firewood?
Wood that has aged for a year or more makes the best firewood.
If you are getting logs that have been cut recently, (known as green wood), it's tougher to burn.
When it does, this type of wood won't burn as hot because of the high moisture content. We sell only seasoned firewood.
2) Is it 100% hardwood? Some firewood suppliers mix in softer woods such as sycamore, pine, maple, and others which don't burn nearly as long as a good seasoned hardwood like oak or hickory. We deliver only 100% hardwood.
3) Is the wood at least 14 to 18 inches in length?
Firewood should be short enough to be put into fireplaces or wood stoves easily. Cutting it shorter than that is a common way to cut corners on the amount of wood you actually get. Our logs are guaranteed to be at least 14 to 18 inches.
4) Are the firewood logs you are buying from a company trusted in the local St Louis area for many years?
Untested newer sources add uncertainty. Why take the risk? We've been the preferred and trusted choice for many St Louis firewood customers for over 20 years.
Our reputation means you'll get the best firewood at a competitive price. See tip #5 on right ->

5) Don't be Fooled With Firewood Prices.
Even seasoned firewood purchases can be tricky or misleading.
If you get a quote that is $10 or $15 cheaper, but end up paying for delivery, stacking or less quality wood, it's not a better deal.
We promise you will get a very fair price from us, and never have to worry about the quality.
We serve St Louis MO, St Louis County, St Charles County, Jefferson County- and St Clair, Monroe counties in IL. Buy firewood from the best.
Not all firewoods are the same.
Seasoned hardwood often has bark that is loose or already fallen off.
This type of wood burns much better and longer than inferior varieties. Don't be fooled by price alone.
Quality makes all the difference when it comes to enjoying the light and heat of a good fire, and how long it burns for you.
