Buying green firewood can be a good option if you are looking to save money. Green firewood is less expensive than seasoned firewood because it has not yet had time to dry out.
In general, it takes at least 6-9 months for green firewood to dry to a moisture content of 20% or less. This is the moisture content at which firewood burns most efficiently and produces the least amount of smoke.
Key Benefits for Buying Green Firewood
Green firewood has not yet had time to dry out, so it is less expensive than seasoned firewood.
Green wood burns hotter than seasoned wood, which can help you to stay warm longer.
Green firewood is often available from local suppliers, while seasoned firewood may have to be ordered in advance.
The moisture content in green wood also produces more flames when it burns, which can create a more visually appealing fire.
EASIER TO SPLIT
The moisture content in green wood makes it easier to split, which can save you time and effort.
LONGER SHELF LIFE
Green firewood can be stored for longer periods of time without drying out, which can give you more flexibility in your firewood planning.
