Kiln-Dried Firewood Delivery in Mount Prospect, IL
In contrast to what fantasy films might suggest, no firewood starts a roaring fire without being as dry or as dense as ours.
To combat the inherent moisture of fresh wood, many vendors “season” firewood. This is a simple, cheap process that reduces moisture just enough over the course of a few months, but it leaves a lot of moisture behind. Our kiln-drying process is infinitely more effective, removing pests, mold, fungus and almost all moisture from our product in no more than 48 hours.
Our firewood also owes its effectiveness to high density: The denser the wood, the more of it there is to burn, but how do you figure out a wood’s density? The easiest way is to determine whether your firewood is a hardwood or a softwood, as hardwood is much denser. Among hardwoods, a specific species shouldn’t make much of a difference, though we note that oak makes for the densest firewood that burns the longest.
Dryness determines how easy firewood is to start, but density determines how hot the fire will be and how long that fire will burn. We make sure these factors work together to provide the best possible outdoor experience.
Restaurant-Quality Cooking Wood in Mount Prospect, IL
While our kiln-dried firewood has a reputation for keeping Chicagoland’s homes warm during winter, wood that’s good enough for heating homes is certainly good enough for cooking. Cooking outside on a windy day leads to varying or inappropriate amounts of doneness, unless you use our kiln-dried cooking wood to maximize consistency and heat.
As easy to ignite as the driest wood is, dryness also reduces potential contamination in the sense that the driest logs yield much less smoke and creosote than those with a modicum of moisture. Furthermore, our drying process sterilizes wood so that no bugs are preparing to hitch a ride on your steak! We’ve been happy to share our bone-dry, pristine cooking wood with businesses and residents across Chicagoland.
Premium Hardwood Mulch Delivery in Mount Prospect, IL
By following one simple rule, we provide some of Chicagoland’s best mulch. Mulch is the only ingredient in our mulch. You’d be surprised by how few vendors can accomplish this. The cheapest bags of mulch at the hardware store are full of indiscriminate pieces that contain pesticides among other chemicals, many of which damage plants and soil. But because our mulch contains nothing beyond pure hardwood, it’s perfect for defending, nurturing and even beautifying landscapes.
How to Get Your Firewood and Mulch
We promise that amazing local firewood is worth your time and money. With a single delivery, we can provide a heat source that’ll last weeks. Take pride in your home and share your passion for the outdoors by following these steps.
Step 1: Pick Your Premium Wood
Our firewood sales peak in the fall, but we provide firewood year-round. Our hardwood blend of cherry, birch, hickory and oak is a distinctly popular option. We also provide cooking wood to restaurants by splitting firewood into smaller pieces that add smoky notes to new dishes.
As for our different colors of mulch, “chocolate” provides plenty of contrast to brighten flowers, while red mulch is unusually flattering for photos. If you’re not sure which wood or color to select, please call us before you make a move.
Step 2: Specify How Much You Want
The sizes we offer for firewood deliveries are threefold: ¼ face cord (4’x2’), ½ face cord (4’x4’) and 1 face cord (4’x8’). Unless they heat their homes exclusively with fire, most residential customers shouldn’t need more than a face cord for 10 to 12 weeks of warmth. You can always purchase additional face cords to compensate for limited heating.
Ordering mulch is a bit simpler in that we sell it by the cubic yard. We understand that measurements and conversions take time, so please check out our calculator. We’re happy to take all that tedious geometry off your back.
