Why burn firewood?
1. Firewood is the best source of renewal
energy to use to heat your home.
2. Burning firewood doesn’t release any more harmful
greenhouse gases than if it lay on the forest floor and rotted.
3. Firewood burns at such high BTU’s that it’s actually more
efficient at heating your home than gas, oil, coal or wood pellets.
How much firewood should be stored indoors?
1. Only a two or three day supply.
2. Burning wood that has been taken directly from outdoors will cool down your fire too much.
What Is Your Delivery Charge?
Prices include delivery to most locations.
What is unseasoned wood?
Unseasoned or “green” wood is wood that hasn’t had enough time to dry out all its’ moisture content. If you burn green wood, it will smoke profusely as it releases its’ moisture and gases. Green wood also releases less heat because the moisture lowers the temperature of the flames and creates steam. It also damages your chimney because the steam contains chemicals that not only build up inside your chimney, but are very flammable and can create chimney fires. Here at Santa Fe Ecowood, we guarantee all of our wood is seasoned properly for the best heating and burning experience. Many roadside vendors that sell inexpensive firewood are not selling well-seasoned wood.
How do I store my firewood?
The best way to store firewood is at least 30 feet away from your home or building, off the ground, in full sunlight and covered with clear plastic to create a “greenhouse” effect. This method stops bugs and bark beetles from living in and off your wood. It also helps maintain the woods dryness.
How long do I have to wait for a delivery?
Here at Santa Fe Ecowood, we will do everything possible to get your wood to you as quickly as possible. Usually the next day, but when demand gets high you may have
to wait a few days to a week.
What is the average length of your wood?
We cut our firewood at 16” to ensure it fits perfectly into fireplaces and wood burning stoves. We do take special orders for different sizes.
Do you charge extra for stacking my order?
No. It's included in the price.
I have a holiday home in Santa Fe but live in Texas, can you help me?
Yes! We have quite a few customers that we've never met. You can call, email or use the online shop. If your order has been paid for in advance, we will take care of the rest.
Some of the trees on my property have come down, could you come & make them into logs for me
Of course. Drop us a line with as many details as you can & we'll give you a price and instructions on how long to allow it to season.
How can I tell if firewood is ready to burn?
Firewood generally is considered suitable for burning once it reaches a moisture content of 20% or less. 15% is ideal, and you would be hard pressed to find firewood much dryer.
You need to rely on visual clues to determine if your firewood is suitable for burning. Seasoned wood will have checked or cracked ends. Often times the bark will separate easily from the wood. It may have a grey, weathered
appearance, but not if it has been stored under cover. If you knock two pieces together it should sound hollow, instead of dense.
Do you sell firewood all year long?
Yes, we sell firewood all year long because we keep a good supply for summer activities such as campfires and chimineas.
How Much Do I Need?
If you use your firewood throughout the entire day for five months during the winter season, it's likely you will need 1 ½ cords. If you only use your firewood in the evenings during that five-month span, a cord will be sufficient. And, if you only use your fireplace a few days during the week or for special occasions, a ½ cord should be good.
