Fall Has Arrived

Although it is kind of hard to tell with all this nice weather. But that is about to change. The weatherman is predicting the return of rain in the coming days as a series of storms approach our area. It is time to clean those gutters and street drains to prevent local flooding.

Dry, Seasoned Firewood

This year, the high cost of heating oil and natural gas is going to put a strain on the heating budget and burning wood is an excellent home heating option. Our premium firewood is going fast so stock up now while supplies last.

HELPFUL HINTS:

  1. Burn seasoned firewood-Improves efficiency and reduces creosote buildup.
  2. Clean your chimney- Keeping your chimney clean helps prevent home fires.
  3. Stack in a sheltered, well-ventilated place-Cover the top but leave the sides open.
  4. Get it now! Finding dry, well-seasoned firewood in the middle of winter is impossible.
