Burning Green or Unseasoned VS Seasoned Firewood
It is recommended that if you prefer to burn green firewood, you purchase it between 6-12 months prior to the wood burning season as it needs that length of time to dry out. Burning green firewood can be destructive. The high moisture content in the firewood causes incomplete combustion and within your fireplace, it will contribute to creosote buildup along the interior walls of your chimney, which can easily ignite into a chimney fire. Seasoned firewood like we sell at Milam’s Tree Service is much more optimal to avoid the issue all together.

How to Best Store Firewood Outside
Do not tarp your wood pile; instead only cover the top in the event of rain storms, but it is important to allow the wind to run through the wood stack. Dark, moist places contributes to the growing of foreign bodies on firewood. Avoid stacking it up on the soil, as it will draw the moisture into it. Stack your firewood on concrete, a make shift runner made from a couple of 2X4’s, or a firewood rack.
