Cedar Firewood

We are one of the very few companies that sell Cedar Firewood.

Our Cedar Firewood is 16" stacked 4' high in a 2', 4' or 6' rack. 

Cedar wood comes from cedar trees, of which there are several varieties, including Northern White Cedar, Western Red Cedar, Eastern Red Cedar, and others. Cedar is very aromatic and has a strong oder. Cedar twigs catch fire quickly due to the high concentration of cedar oil, and burn cleanly compared to other common woods such as pine and so is a good source for kindling and starting fires.

REMINDER: The drier your wood is, the better and cleaner it will burn, and the less creosote buildup you will have. Your stove or chimney cleaning needs will not be as frequent, and above all, you will limit yourself and your family to the minimum risk of having a chimney or stove fire. As always, have your fireplace chimney cleaned every 1-2 years depending on cresote buildup.
