Why Spring is the Prime Time for Firewood Storage?

Once the winter is over, everyone feels relaxed and starts enjoying the warmth of the spring season. However, smart consumers start storing firewood for the next winter instead of just feeling relaxed. Firewood is readily available at a lower cost during the spring and summer seasons. The weather is also dry, helping in the proper seasoning for firewood storage.

In this blog, we will discuss why the spring season is the prime time for firewood storage along with some recommended products that can be beneficial.

Here are a few reasons why you should store firewood in the spring and summer seasons:

1. Easy Availability 

Firewood is often readily available and easier to access during this season. Many suppliers have extra stock from the previous winter, and they may even offer discounts to sell out their stock. Also, the ground is dry which makes it easier to transport and store firewood without any problem of mud or snow.

2. Seasoned Firewood

Firewood requires time to season properly (at least 6 months) before we can burn it efficiently. This process involves drying out the wood so that its moisture content is reduced. Spring allows sufficient time for freshly cut wood to follow this process so that it burns cleaner and produces more heat when harsh winter arrives.

3. Preventing Pests and Mold

Storing firewood outdoors during the warmer months makes pests or molds leave before you bring it indoors for burning. Insects like termites and beetles can wreak disaster if they enter your home, so giving them time to find new places outside is important.

4. Proper Storage

Building or repairing a proper storage area for firewood takes time and effort. Spring offers ideal weather conditions for constructing or repairing existing storage sheds or racks. You will have an ample amount of time to have a sturdy and organized space ready for your firewood storage.

5. Cost Savings

You can buy firewood in the off-season as it can help you save money. During this time many suppliers offer discounts or promotions to clear their old stock. It allows you to purchase quality firewood at a lower price as compared to the peak demand of winter.

6. Planning for the Future

Being ready for the future is the right thing to do, especially when it comes to heating your home. Firewood storage during springtime helps you avoid the last-minute rush and shortages that are common during winter. You will also be relaxed by knowing that you are well-prepared for the colder months.
