ENVIRONMENTAL MATTERS

Our supplies are all non-indigenous/alien and dead or fallen stock.

Ask us to source any type of wood you are looking for. We can normally find it for you!

The environment and global climate change is on everyone’s mind these days.  If you’re worried about firewood being a major pollutant, don’t!  If you burn firewood efficiently, then you are actually engaging in a carbon neutral event.  When a tree grows, it consumes exactly the same amount of carbon that it will give off if you were to burn that fuel.

Firewood is a renewable energy resource like wind, solar and hydro-electric power. To meet the challenge of global warming, we’ll need to use more renewable energy and less oil, gas and coal in the future. Heating with wood can be a part of the solution, provided the wood is burned efficiently. When wood heat replaces carbon-producing fuels such as propane, heating oil or electricity from a coal-burning plant, then wood burning has a positive impact on the world-wide carbon footprint.

Today, important technological advances have resulted in cleaner burning, higher efficiency wood stoves.
