How Lumberjacks Serves Joliet, IL
Picturesque, historical Joliet is the perfect place to enjoy our fantastic firewood and mulch. Our kiln-dried hardwood has been part of roaring fires in pits and places across town, warming family gatherings and game nights with friends.
Each spring, we’re happy to help restore historic homes by providing nutritious mulch with which to spruce up surrounding flowerbeds and gardens, but don’t use spruce, as it’s a softwood.
For Joliet’s ambitious home cooks and restaurant owners, we’re proud to provide cooking wood by cutting our kiln-dried hardwood into chunks small enough for outdoor pizza ovens.

Kiln-Dried Firewood for Sale in Joliet, IL
As purveyors of some of the best firewood in Northern Illinois, we recognize the importance of keeping dense wood dry. If you go outside to start a fire with fresh wood, you won’t have any luck. All firewood needs time to dry before you can light it.
Because many major retailers want to sell the most firewood instead of the best firewood, they resort to seasoning, a somewhat effective process that reduces moisture over the course of a couple months. All major retailers have to do is leave firewood in a dry place for a while. Our kiln-drying process is much faster and more effective, producing the driest, most pristine firewood in no more than two days.
Density is also important because it determines how long fires endure as well as how hot they are. An important distinction to make is between softwoods and hardwoods because hardwoods are much denser. All our firewood is hardwood, and we even sell oak, which is the densest local hardwood.
Since we optimize our firewood to give it the two most important strengths it needs to perform, we have a feeling you’ll like it, too.
Restaurant-Quality Cooking Wood in Joliet, IL
We’re proud of our firewood for heating homes and businesses across Chicagoland, but a great source of heat serves the further purpose of cooking. To make cooking wood, we chop our firewood into pieces small enough for grills and pizza ovens. No different from our firewood, our cooking wood allows for fires to yield greater heat for more time.
Dryness is an important part of picking the most effective firewood, as the driest wood is easiest to light, but dryness is also a major factor in discerning which cooking wood is best. Excess moisture creates excess creosote and smoke upon ignition. Certainly, you won’t want creosote in your food, and you’ll want to limit smokiness in favor of representing all a dish’s flavors. Otherwise, our drying process ensures that our cooking wood contains no bugs, fungus or mold with which to contaminate any food. We’ve been happy to provide excellent cooking wood to restaurants and homes across Chicagoland.
Premium Hardwood Mulch Delivery in Joliet, IL
Our mulch has nourished, protected and beautified gardens all over Chicagoland. With so many historical sites in Joliet, residents know a thing or two about presentation, and that’s why they choose our 100% organic mulch. Don’t let the hardware store fool you with low prices because there’s a lot more than mulch in those bags, namely chemicals that can harm plants and reduce soil’s fertility. But our mulch is just that – mulch, and that’s why it’s so good at leveraging its density to protect plants and provide vital nutrients.
If you’d like to give your home’s flowerbeds a makeover, we’re happy to provide our amazing mulch in a couple colors.
How to Request Firewood and Mulch Deliveries
Whether you want our products for your home or business in Joliet, IL, we like to keep things simple. Follow these steps, and you’ll be on your way to starting a big bright fire.
Step 1: Pick Your Premium Wood
We present two popular options to customers in Joliet. For restaurant owners, we suggest our cooking wood blend of cherry and apple wood. For residents who’re only looking to heat their homes, we suggest the hardwood blend, which contains cherry, oak, birch and hickory.
If you’re looking for fresh mulch, our options are premium hardwood, premium bark, red-colored and chocolate. The chocolate doesn’t taste as good as it looks, unfortunately. If you’re not sure which color will complement your lawn best, just call us for suggestions.
Step 2: Specify How Much You Want
With regard to our mulch, you can order it by the cubic yard, and if you don’t know how much you need, please feel free to use our calculator to find the exact amount. Otherwise, we offer three sizes for our firewood deliveries: ¼ face cord (4’x2’), ½ face cord (4’x4’) and 1 face cord (4’x8’).
