The time to hesitate is through,
No time to wallow in the mire,
Let's set the night on fire.
According to my father, there are some things that you can't ever get enough of and time and firewood were at the top of his list.
For fire lovers, it traditionally took a lot of time to get great firewood that is ready to burn today. Kiln Dried Firewood - from stump to stove in three days!
The process of kiln drying firewood provides an efficient manner of reducing the moisture content of firewood in days rather than years.
Our KDF is dried in state of the art kilns. The split wood remains in the kilns for about three 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 1million BTU’s per cord and increases the heat value.
Less water means less smoke and creosote. Creosote is the condensation of the unburned particles 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 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 which means much less creosote.
Thayer Nursery 100% 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!
Thayer Nursery 100% 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.
