How to Properly Stack Your Firewood

If you have an eye-sore of a pile of firewood somewhere on your Norwood area property, it may be a good idea to neatly stack it in a protected area. Not only will stacking it correctly make it look much neater, it will also be easier to access and keep your firewood dryer and more protected. You also want to make sure it’s stacked securely so it will not fall over every time you go to use some firewood.

The basics of stacking firewood

If you find that after you’ve stacked wood in the past that it eventually falls over, you may be using the wrong techniques to stack. It’s important to start with a solid base off the ground. This means finding a flat area in your yard or property that is not sloped or un-even. Keeping the stack off the ground also helps the wood stay dry and not develop mold growth. If you want to go above and beyond it may be a good idea to dedicate an area in your home, shed or garage to store the wood to keep it even dryer. If you must store it outside it’s a good idea to build some sort of base using either other older wood or a platform to keep your useable firewood high and dry.

Season it!

No this does not mean to sprinkle your wood with some salt & pepper, this is the process of allowing your wood to have only 20% moisture content through drying. Luckily for your sake, Lola’s landscape handles this for you, providing high-quality seasoned firewood to all of our customers in the Norfolk, MA area! If your firewood is not seasoned properly, your fire will be much harder to light when the time comes to heat your home or outdoor fire.

Multiple stacks may be better

Having multiple smaller stacks of firewood rather than one large one may be beneficial for you for a few reasons. A smaller stack of firewood provides superior air flow and allows it to be more stable than a larger pile wood. It also opens up multiple areas as to where you can stack your wood. You won’t have to struggle when it comes to finding an area that’s large and flat enough as you can space it out over a few different areas. If you have a large amount of wood, it’s always a good idea to consider using multiple areas!

Firewood is a great way to heat your home or enjoy a bonfire outdoors this winter. If you need to re-stock or want to start burning, Lola’s Landscape has you covered!

The Best Firewood for Heating Your Home- Ranked

One of the most efficient ways to heat your home during the frigid winter months is by using either a fireplace or wood stove. One cord of firewood produces the heating equivalent to burning about 250 gallons of heating oil. Of course, this all depends on the type of wood you are using in your fireplace or wood stove.

The Rankings

Essentially when it comes to firewood, the denser the wood is, the better off you are when it comes to home heating. Below is a list of the best rated by BTU’s (the traditional unit of heat) per cord:

  1. Oak
  2. Beech
  3. Apple
  4. Mulberry
  5. Maple
  6. Walnut
  7. Juniper
  8. Birch
  9. Douglas-fir
  10. Cherry
  11. Ash
  12. Elm
  13. Sycamore
  14. Hemlock
  15. Aspen
  16. Chestnut
  17. Willow
  18. Alder
  19. Pine
  20. Cottonwood
  21. Spruce
  22. Cedar

The Good

As you can see oak is the best choice for heating your Massachusetts home this winter. Producing over 26 million BTUs per cord you will definitely be getting more bang for your buck when using oak rather than oil or other forms of firewood.

If you prefer not to use oak, beech and apple wood are also not bad choices. Producing 23 and 22 million BTUs per cord respectively- you’ll still be able to get some serious heating output from your stove or fireplace with these types of firewood.

The Bad

Some woods you definitely want to avoid using to heat your home are spruce and cedar. Producing 15 and 13 million BTUs per cord, you can find many better options out there that will get you many more BTUs per cord.

One other consequence to look out for when selecting a firewood type is if it produces a creosote buildup while burning. Creosote is a highly flammable, messy residue that over time will build up from burning soft and oily woods (pine, cottonwood, spruce) especially if they are not treated and dried. These types of woods can be used to start a fire as they burn very fast and hot, but are not suitable for long term heating use.

Tips for Heating Your Home with Wood This Winter


Burning firewood to heat your home can be a great way to save money on your next heating bill. But if you are considering this route, it is important to note that burning firewood to heat your home is very different from using a thermostat controlled central heating system. Check out these tips for getting the most out of heating your home with wood this winter.

Pick the right wood

Burning the right type of wood is essential when it comes to heating your home. First, you will want to burn wood that has been seasoned. This means the wood has been dried and the moisture content is very low. It can take a long time for wood to dry out after being cut from trees which is why seasoning wood is done many months prior to winter.

There are a few different species of wood to choose from when picking your firewood. For long burning fires with the most heat hardwoods such as oak, sycamore, beech, ash, and birch are best. For hot fires that are easy to light and burn quickly, choose softwoods like spruce, pine, and larch.

Plan enough wood for the winter

There are a few factors that will determine the amount of firewood you will need to last you through the winter. Things like the efficiency and size of your fireplace or wood stove, type of wood you use, frequency of use, how well your home is insulated and how cold the winter is. All these factors are important to keep in mind when purchasing your firewood for the season, the last thing you will want to do is not order enough wood to keep your home heated through a long cold winter.

Learn to build a fire

Building a fire can seem like a complicated task if you have never done it before, but it doesn’t have to be. There are 3 components to get a fire started, fuel, heat, and oxygen. You can use small bits of tinder such as twigs or newspaper to get the fire started then add in kindling such as small branches, sticks, and small logs. Once you get the flame started, begin to add more wood making sure not to smother out the flames. Never use lighter fluid, kerosene, or other flammable liquids in your fireplace or wood stove.

Take into consideration homes insulation

If this is the first time you are using wood burning to heat your home you will want to make sure your home’s insulation is up to par. To successful heat your home with a wood fire it helps tremendously if you have good insulation. Fill all cracks in your insulation, and consider replacing windows with storm windows or double pane insulated windows. This will all help keep the warmth from the fire in your home where it belongs.

When it comes to making the switch from traditional heating to wood burning heating in your home it can be a big jump but these tips can make the process a little easier.  Using firewood as a heating source is a great way to save money and energy. At Lola’s Landscape, we provide seasoned firewood to the community of Norfolk County. Call us today to learn more about pricing and delivery of firewood this season!

Burning this type of material can lead to Smokey fires that aren’t always enjoyable to relax by. If you are planning an outside fire in a fire put to truly enjoy it is important to be prepared and consider the proper wood you will burn.

One of the most important things when it comes to wood burning it to make sure your wood is thoroughly dried out previous to burning. Dry wood has benefits that will assure you a successful outdoor fire for all to enjoy.

Summer nights are the perfect time for gathering around a roaring fire with your friends. But before you throw that first logs on the fire make sure to review some of these firewood safety tips.

Store Wood Correctly

When it comes to storing seasoned wood make sure you store it in the proper conditions. If you plan on storing seasoned wood in your garage or outdoor workshop make sure there are no open ignition sources nearby. These include tools like grinders, torches or welders.

Purchase Local Firewood.

Many pests or diseases that can attack your trees travel through firewood, this is why it is very important to purchase local firewood. Emerald ash borer, Asian long-horned beetle, and thousand canker disease are all potential diseases that can attack your trees. By obtaining your wood locally you avoid importing pests into your area.

Don’t burn Poison Ivy

Poison ivy vines can often wrap around trees and end up in your firewood. If you notice poison ivy on your firewood do not try burning it or try removing the vine. If you miss some of the vines and end up burning the poison ivy it can be very dangerous. You can breathe in the smoke and have the poison oil enter your lungs causing serious health issues.
