When the frigid temperatures of winter arrive, you want to have plenty of dry firewood available for a warm night by the fire. It’s not as easy as it sounds if you don’t have the proper tools for storing firewood. Here are some do’s and don’ts when it comes to making sure your fire burns hot and efficiently this season.
Storing Firewood Outside
The first thing you need to do when you’re preparing for those chilly nights is to organize the firewood. It may be tempting to stack the wood conveniently in your home near the fireplace somewhere. But that’s a big don’t
when it comes to storing firewood. You don’t want to introduce any pests like termites to your home!
Do use a rack
to stack your firewood and store safely outside. This will keep the wood off the ground, which will help get rid of bugs, mold growth, and rot. This ultra-duty rack
with a 2-way adjustable cover will give you seasoned wood with a small footprint. The premium U Channel frame and open-air design will give your firewood the ventilation it needs, while also making it easy for you to access. If you want something bigger than the compact 4 ft. model, you can choose a rack in multiple sizes up to this 16 ft. model

The Best Choice in Firewood Storage
While storing firewood outside is a great first step, you don’t
want to ever keep it someplace where it can easily get wet. When your ultimate goal is to create burnable wood for an efficient fire, do
invest in a seasoning shed.
