To make delivery as convenient as possible for every
one, we will call a day or two ahead and ask you to
mark the drop site with a plastic grocery bag tied to a
stake exactly where you want us to drop the wood. Put
the check in a ziploc inside the grocery bag. This way
you can go about your daily routine uninterrupted. It
often gives us a quick clue from the road as to whether
we need to back in or drive in. This saves us a little time
and a lot of guessing. If you have plans for us to drop
the wood out in your yard, we need to know this so we
can plan delivery when the ground is solid. The drop
site must be a place where the truck will not be on a
side hill when the wood is dumped. The truck is 11 1/2
feet tall before raising the box, so wires and branches
must be accounted for.
DRYING YOUR WOOD
Best set-up: woodshed with main opening facing
south for maximum exposure to the sun.
Good set-up: ventilated shed or stacked pile with top
covered, leaving sides open to air.
Poor set-up: uncovered pile on north side of house or
under trees with no sun.
Worst set-up: pile dumped under trees on the
ground, tightly covered with tarp, trapping moisture
Starter Log is the best and most convenient fire starter
we have found – one match does it every time. It is a
mixture of sawdust and paraffin wax. Just break off
small chunks as needed. (Walmart, K-Mart, Tops, e
