We start with logs
These were the first logs delivered to our woodlot in March 2023.
Which are cut into rounds
Our chain saws and Cutting Teams are kept busy!
And split into wedges
The larger rounds are split using Hope, our vertical splitter, into wedges.
Then split into firewood
We use our primary splitter, Spirit, in the horizontal position to split the wedges and smaller rounds into firewood.
The stacks for use the winter of 2023-2024 were stacked on directly on the ground.
This wider stack was placed in a wetter area so was stacked on pallets. It is now covered drying for delivery for the 2024-2025 heating season.
These two stacks, which hold about 5 cords firewood each, were the first stacked and covered. They are now being delivered to clients.
it takes volunteers
Only a few of our volunteers doing only a few of the many steps involved are pictured. We have been working, not taking photos of the volunteers working!
