Our Seasoning Process


We use ethically sourced wood from our friends at Abbott Tree Care.

Cut and Split

Split logs have more surface area, helping the wood dry more evenly.


Proper firewood stacking allows air to circulate around the wood.


Our wood is left to dry naturally in the open air for months on end.

Store and Burn

Once the wood is dried, it’s ready to be stored or used for burning.

When you’ve got that freshly cut or fallen wood, also known as green wood, you’re looking at roughly 50 percent moisture content. Burning fresh wood is far from ideal for more reasons than one. Firstly, that high moisture content makes it a real pain to light and keep a fire going. Secondly, green wood doesn’t give you that delicious smoky flavor that seasoned wood does. And if that wasn’t inconvenient enough, it can even bring down the temperature of your fire quite a bit. That’s why avoiding the green wood is best if you aim for a good fire.
