We all are so hectic and just want to enjoy all the everyday moments we have. Most of us are not lumberjacks and are not equipped to go from forest to fireplace with our own firewood. Nor do we do not have the time to patiently wait for over a year before it is dry enough to use. Thayer Nursery 100% Kiln Dried Firewood is guaranteed to burn when delivered to you.Most importantly, we only sell.
100% Kiln-Dried Firewood so there is no fear of us diluting the quality of our product by mixing in green or seasoned wood.
Our KDF is a mix of hard wood: Beech, Birch, Maple, Oak and Ash. It is cut and split to 16” lengths but it is available for an additional charge in custom sizes from 12” – 22” lengths.
We store our KDF in our wood barn – the firewood is never exposed to the elements.
Our KDF is dried in state of the art kilns.
The process of kiln drying firewood provides an efficient manner of manufacturing firewood in avoiding the one to two years of the normal time required in seasoning firewood.
The split wood remains in the kilns for two days at nearly 200 degrees; removing over 1,000 pounds of water from each cord. This drying process increases the wood’s burning efficiency by nearly 1 million BTU’s per cord over “green” firewood and increases the heat value. The moisture content is reduced to below 25%.
Our KDF is bug and pest free. Since the temperatures in the kilns are so high, all insets are literally baked off. You can safely store our KDF in your shed, garage or on your porch!
Since there is less moisture, there is less creosote. Creosote is the condensation of unburned particulates present in the smoke. The actual cause of creosote condensation is the surface temperature of the flue in which the smoke comes in contact. If the surface temperature of the flue is cool, it will cause the vaporized carbon particles in the smoke to solidify. If the wood you are using is green or wet, it causes the whole system to be cool, and inefficient. Dry wood means a hot fire, a hot fire means a hot flue, and a hot flue means much less creosote.
Thayer Nursery 100% Kiln Dried Firewood is available for pick up in various quantities that fit in the trunk of your car or bed of your truck/ trailer or for delivery in ¼ cord up to 1.5 cord increments.
