THE HOME OWNERS GUIDE TO FIREWOOD

Welcome to firewoodcenter.com

To update your listing please E-mail us with your current information.
We are an internet service that started in 1999. Our purpose is to promote responsible firewood burning and to connect firewood dealers with consumers in your area via our searchable database. Our goal is to provide the most complete and the most up to date data base of Firewood suppliers in this industry. We also want to provide consumers with information to help them get the most enjoyment out of firewood. Firewood Center promotes proper use, storage and forestry practices including sponsoring and encouraging reforestation efforts. It is important to note that this site is 100% free to all Consumers, Firewood Dealers and Discussion Board users. We only ask that you keep conversations Clean and Civil on the Discussion Board! CHIMNEY SAFETY
Do you need a chimney sweep? A chimney inspection? If you are concerned about the safety of your wood burning appliance, or if you can’t remember the last time your chimney was cleaned AND inspected, you might want to go to the National Chimney Sweep Guild. They have a searchable database of certified Chimney Sweeps / Inspectors in your area!

there are always new ones being planted to replace those that get old and die, or get destroyed by forest fires nationwide. We have selected the National Arbor Day Foundation as the group that can do the most with our donations. We have pledged to plant one new tree for every Woodhaven® Firewood Rack we sell, and are encouraging firewood vendors to also make a donation for every cord of wood they sell. We also encourage you, the consumer to make just a small donation every year; you can buy a tree, or some other cool items. Or you can just write a small check or pay by credit card. If we all work together, we can make a big difference!

Our Reforestation Efforts

We believe that being good stewards of what we have been given is important. Leaving the next generation with an environment that is healthy is all of our responsibility. We also feel that burning of firewood should not only be done in a clean way, but that we should also help support reforestation efforts. A tree growing old and dying is a natural part of nature, we just need to make sure that

How much do I need?

If you are buying firewood to use in your fireplace, a cord might be a little overkill.  Most people who use their fireplace a few times a week might be better off with a face cord or a quarter cord.  Our two most popular quantities are the 1/4 cord and 1/2 cord. It really depends on how cold it is, and how often you like to sit by the fire!
