A Tree is Felled. Next the branches are Limbed, then the log is piled with other like logs, softwood vs. hardwood. The Logs are then bunched together with chains, and Skidded (dragged) out of the forest to a Log Landing. Trees that are identified as Saw Logs, are graded for quality, loaded onto a logging truck and delivered to a mill, to be processed into building materials. Lower quality wood will be chipped into pulp to be used in paper products. The remaining logs are processed into firewood. Here, the logs are Bucked into small pieces to fit the stove size (typically 16 – 20 inches). The wood is then run through a wood splitter or Split by hand into quarters. Finally, the wood is Stacked, covered and left to Season for a year. Months removed from the start of the process, the work complete, seated in front of a warm fire on a dark evening with snow piling up outside, the value is pretty self evident.
From raw product to a refined item on the shelf… The end result is complete and ready for use, like a piece of seasoned hardwood,Split+Stacked and heating your home through the cold winter.
