Here are some tips for buying firewood.
It’s easy to get burned when buying firewood, so make sure you work with reputable companies. Here are some tips for buying firewood: -- Confusion can be avoided by purchasing wood by the cord, half-cord or quarter-cord. A cord is 128 cubic feet. When a cord is properly stacked, it should be as large as a stack that is 8 feet long by 4 feet high and 4 feet wide. Consumers should contact the seller immediately if they do not receive the quantity purchased. -- Buyers should understand basic firewood terms and rules to ensure they receive what was advertised. If firewood is sold as “seasoned,” then it must have moisture content less than 50 percent. Unseasoned wood produces only two-thirds of the heat of seasoned wood. In addition, if a seller claims the wood is a specific type, the delivered load must contain at least 90 percent of that species. Canton Repository
