The Benefits of Kiln Dried Firewood in 2020 image

WHY KILN DRIED FIREWOOD IS SUPERIOR. Many people don’t understand the quality of using Kiln Dried Wood.

Not only does this reduce the amount of time that it takes to dry the wood, but it also eliminates the problem of ...

Why you need to stop burning coal. image

Mining and burning coal for fuel is harmful to the environment; but, because coal is so abundant and cheap, many people are reluctant to give it up as a fuel source.

In contrast softwood firewood grows much faster maturing in 25-30 yrs and the timber is ...
