    Most people with wood-burning fireplaces know that seasoned, dry hardwood is the best fuel for a clean, efficient fire.  But did you know that how you stack and store the wood can be just as important?  Whether you are heating the living room or a backyard fire pit, the quality of the wood you use can make all the difference.  Fires fueled with properly stored wood are less smoky, generate better heat, and burn cleaner than blazes which are fed unseasoned, soggy logs.  Learning more on proper wood storage will ensure your family enjoys warm, comforting fires all season long.

    Here are some tips on how to store firewood properly: Good Tiles

    • Stack the wood to keep it dry
    • Keep firewood covered to protect it from rain and snow
    • Store the wood at least 30 feet from the home (a smaller supply can be kept closer for easier access)
    • Use a pallet as the base of your stacks for sturdiness and increased air flow
    • When storing, choose a spot with good drainage so water doesn’t pool in the area
    • The ground beneath the stack should be level and flat
