Stop struggling to keep your firewood lit and tearing up as dirty smoke clouds your eyes. Instead, kick back and enjoy a healthy roaring fire built on pristine, cleanly split kiln-dried firewood. We deliver bulk orders of this premium hardwood throughout the Chicagoland region.
Last time we checked, using firewood is supposed to be relaxing. The whole point is to get hypnotized by the flames as you enjoy a refreshing beverage, toasting s’more and absorbing conversation with the ones you love.
You won’t get that pure, uninterrupted experience if you keep getting distracted by a low-quality fire.
At Lumberjacks, we only produce kiln-dried firewood because it’s the only wood that makes the perfect fire possible.
What is Kiln-Dried Firewood?
Kiln-dried firewood is wood that has been painstakingly engineered for the highest quality fires. We hand-select the best pieces of locally sourced hardwood and split them to a 16-inch length and 1-2-inch diameter. Then we heat-treat and kiln-dry it for two days at over 260 degrees in state-of-the-art dry kilns. The wood comes out in prime fire making condition, containing less than 20% moisture and no insects, mold, mildew, fungi or pesticides.
Why is this Better Than Regular Firewood?
The wood must contain less than 20% moisture because anything more than that creates the frustrations we described above. The excess moisture makes the wood difficult to ignite and produces subpar flames that give off a lot of dirty smoke and creosote.
Unfortunately, most of the firewood sold in the Chicago region contains over 20% moisture. This is because firewood suppliers opt for the cheaper and less effective process of seasoning the wood by leaving it out to dry.
We refuse to leave the moisture content of your wood to chance. Instead, every piece of wood you purchase from Lumberjacks will always be in the best possible burning condition.
Get your fire going right away with the driest wood for the speediest flames.
Get More Out of Less
Kiln-dried firewood creates the hottest fires using the least amount of wood.
Cleaner, Safer Fires
At under 20% moisture, the wood produces minimal dirty smoke and creosote.
Safe to Store Indoors
Since it contains no bugs, mold or fungus, you won’t bring any pests inside.

A delight to the senses, our kiln-dried cherry emits a sweet aroma, bright purple flame and relaxing crackling sounds.
A go-to for smoking meat, our kiln-dried hickory creates blazing and long-lasting fires with that classic wood scent.
A reliable wood for any occasion, our kiln-dried oak is great for a long, slow burn with very little smoke and lots of heat.
You can stop in to pick up a bundle of wood or choose one of our larger quantity options:
Is kiln-dried firewood really worth the extra cost?
We won’t lie to you. Our kiln-dried firewood is more expensive than regular seasoned firewood because of the extra effort required to produce it. However, we feel like this price is more than worth it for the enhanced experience kiln-dried firewood provides. There’s something about grabbing a pristine piece of wood and setting it ablaze with minimal effort that makes us feel alive!
Does your company do anything to protect the environment?
Yes! Obviously, it takes a lot of wood to do what we do, so we only source our wood from responsible local harvesters. These organizations plant a tree for every tree they cut down to ensure our forests will stay green, vibrant and beautiful.
What’s the best way to get my firewood?
We recommend our efficient firewood delivery service because it’s the easiest way to get the wood you need. We deliver throughout the Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin regions from our main location in Woodstock, IL. It should take between 1-3 days to get your firewood depending on how far away you are. Our team takes great care to ensure high quality and accurate firewood delivery.
Of course, if you prefer to do it yourself, you can also stop by one of our two locations in Woodstock or Lake in the Hills. We offer bundled firewood that can fit inside a car trunk, or we can help you load up your truck with a face cord. Whatever works best for you!
Why do you charge for stacking while others do it for free?
We charge for stacking because it creates extra labor on our end. We feel the optional extra fee is reasonable and worth it for the awesome job our workers do neatly stacking it.
The truth is it would be a red flag if we didn’t charge for stacking. After all, companies that offer free stacking often do so because they don’t want you to stack it yourself. If you did, you could discover that there’s less wood in your delivery than you paid for. But when they stack it, they can use crisscross stacking methods to make it look like there’s more wood there than there is.
What is your firewood delivery area?
We deliver firewood throughout the Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin regions. This includes Chicago, Rockford, Milwaukee and the many towns in between.
How much firewood do I need?
This answer to this question depends on what you plan on doing with the wood. For example, if you only plan on making a few campfires or the occasional bonfire, then you’ll be better off purchasing a few bundles. On the other hand, if you want to heat your home for the winter, then you’ll probably need a face cord or more.
Obviously, we can’t tell you exactly how much wood you’ll need here, but we’d be happy to help you figure it out. Please call us or stop by one of our locations to receive assistance from our firewood experts. You can also learn more by reading our blog on how much firewood to order.
