Homestead Tips: Firewood.



Believe it or not it is never too early to be thinking about how you will be staying warm when winter comes. Most people, depending on where you are, should have a heating source that you have control over. In our case we have wood as a backup heat source. When I was growing up heat was our primary source of heat during the winter. As a result, I have cut my fair share of trees and split a lot of stove wood.

The best way to make sure you have plenty of wood for winter is to take advantage of every opportunity to collect your stove wood. In this episode we talk about procuring , seasoning, and heat ratings of wood for your home.


 
If used correctly and harvested in a managed fashion, firewood is extremely sustainable. I hope you enjoyed the video.
