FAQs about Buying Firewood
People buy firewood to help heat their homes or to grill food. The following commonly asked questions are designed to help customers looking to buy firewood:

What is kiln firewood?
As it's name suggests, kiln firewood is firewood that has been dried out under very high temperatures inside a kiln. If you have ever stored firewood outside or used freshly cut logs for your own firewood, you know that wood has the tendency to soak up water. This makes it difficult to burn the wood, producing a very slow fire with little heat and lots of pops and hisses as the water inside the wood is turned to steam. Kiln firewood is incredibly dry, with little to no water left inside the wood. Many people prefer to use kiln firewood as it is easier to burn and makes a good indoor fire.

What's the best wood to use for grilling?
Barbecue grill enthusiasts claim that nothing tastes as good as meat cooked over a wood burning grill. Certain types of wood are favored because they give extra flavor and aroma to the meat. Some traditional examples are wood from cherry or apple trees. Keep in mind that the firewood used in these grills are cut into small chips before being burned.

What's the easiest way to burn firewood?
The secret to getting a good fire going is to use very dry wood. Many people use wood that still has a lot of moisture inside, and so they douse the fire in gasoline or lighter fluid. This creates a fire with an unpleasant aroma, and can be dangerous, especially inside your home. Go easy on the lighter fluid and only apply a small amount at a time until the fire gets going.

Firewood is obtained from a number of sources. It can either be a byproduct of the timber, or lumber, industries. These industries commonly provide pine, fir, and spruce. These types of products can also be acquired through forest management or when land is cleared for development.

It is also sold in a number of ways. Even in some urban areas, firewood can be purchased at supermarkets in the winter. Firewood salesmen may also deliver wood, or it may be sold at the edge of the lot when trees are being cut. In some cases, lots may be set up in urban areas. Wood chips are often sold at supermarkets and discount stores. These are used for BBQs and grilling and tend to be fragrant burning types such as cedar or mesquite.

Firewood salesmen need to keep a close eye on what kind of wood they are selling. Hardwood is premium firewood, with ash from these products being extremely valuable, particularly oak. Pine and fir make better kindling, as do spruce and other soft woods.

Seasoning wood is essential. Cords have to be stored on drying racks for a considerable amount of time. Due to the small size of most fireplaces and stoves, logs are generally cut into two foot long pieces. The process starts with splitting the log. When vendors sell cords, or bundles, they generally stack the products by type. Salesmen need to be able to advise customers on the best wood for various purposes, particularly stoves and furnaces.

Wood is a natural fuel, although it does not give off as much concentrated heat as, for example, coal. Although all wood contains about the same amount of energy, some types burn better or slower than others.

Firewood is likely to remain a popular fuel in the future.
