Why We Love Vernon Hills, IL
There’s more to Northern Illinois than wilderness, and Vernon Hills is a prime example.

When the season permits, busy locals depend on us to handle their firewood and mulch deliveries.
How Lumberjacks Serves Vernon Hills, IL
Vernon Hills is a lot closer to Lake Michigan than our main yard in Woodstock. Still, we’ve managed to make deliveries across Chicagoland since the ‘90s, and our trips to Vernon Hills are no less frequent than our trips to other nearby towns.
When we opened another yard in Lake in the Hills, we could handle more orders to more places, including towns that dot the coast of Lake Michigan, like Vernon Hills. No matter how distant patrons might be, there are times when we can squeeze deliveries into the day customers place them.
For the great restaurants of Vernon Hills, we’re happy to provide cooking wood. For local families, we’re happy to deliver their firewood in fall and provide mulch in spring.
Kiln-Dried Firewood Delivery in Vernon Hills, IL
Our kiln-dried firewood is best for two reasons: It’s dense and dry. The dryer the firewood, the easier starting a fire is. As for density, the densest logs burn the longest. To optimize for both yields the best possible product.
Many major vendors of firewood use “seasoning” to make fires easier to start. While this months-long process works in a pinch, using a kiln reduces much more moisture in much less time. We dry our firewood in kilns for about two days.
How do we know our wood is dense? Generally, hardwood is denser than softwood, so we use hardwood exclusively. In fact, we’re proud providers of oak, the densest of the hardwoods, but birch is among other examples.
Combining density with dryness places our products ahead of the competition.
Restaurant-Quality Cooking Wood in Vernon Hills, IL
We’ve established that kiln-dried hardwood is best for prolonging fires and keeping them warm, but our firewood is also effective for smoking meat and cooking wood-fired pizza. The wood’s consistently high heat prevents undercooking, a common problem on a windy day.
Unlike firewood from the hardware store, our cooking wood is dry enough to keep creosote and excess smoke out of the food. More importantly, our cooking wood is sterile, completely free from insects, mold and fungus that might make people sick. We’ve provided cooking wood to restaurants as well as residences throughout the Chicagoland region.
Premium Hardwood Mulch Delivery in Vernon Hills, IL
We provide the effective mulch every masterful landscaper needs. Mulch is the foundation for any great garden, and the wrong mulch can actually damage your plants, so don’t skip the critical step of understanding what you’re buying.
Your local hardware store might offer the cheapest bags of mulch, but these bags are cheap for a reason: They’re full of chemicals among other artificial materials that sterilize soils or kill plants. With cheap bags of mulch, you could be taking a step back.
Our mulch is 100% hardwood, so it’s as effective at nourishing plants through decomposition as it is at protecting them. Some mulches offer either protection or nourishment more exclusively, but hardwood mulch can make sure you’re addressing both needs effectively enough.
How to Get Your Firewood and Mulch
Residents of Vernon Hills might not have the time to focus on details as minute as which firewood or mulch to use. That’s why we’ve streamlined the process for people making orders from all over Northern Illinois. The simple steps are as follows.
Step 1: Pick Your Premium Wood
We have plenty of firewood for sale in the fall. Our popular firewood blend of cherry, oak, birch and hickory is perfect for new customers. We also provide cooking wood to restaurant owners looking to expand their menus. Among other hardwoods, fruitwoods can add subtle smoky notes to dishes.
As for mulch, our primary dyes are chocolate and red, though the chocolate mulch doesn’t taste nearly as good as it looks. Red is the perfect complement to a home with a mild color palette, but if you have any questions about which mulch best suits your flower beds, please contact us. You can also check out our mulch FAQs or firewood FAQs pages for immediate answers to our customers most common questions.
Step 2: Specify How Much You Want
Our three sizes for firewood orders are: ¼ face cord (4’x2’), ½ face cord (4’x4’) and 1 face cord (4’x8’). We offer these sizes because most residences shouldn’t require more than a face cord per winter. There’s little reason to purchase multiple face cords unless you’re purchasing on behalf of a business or you use firewood exclusively to heat your home.
Again, we provide mulch by the cubic yard, and if you don’t want to wrack your brain with tedious geometry and conversions, our calculator can crunch most numbers for you. Just combine the area of each plot into a single number and provide a depth in inches (We recommend three).
