When picking up you will have to load your own and are responsible for your own accidents or injury. Firewood chores are a strenuous and sometimes dangerous endeavor.

If picking up,   it is a good idea to bring cardboard to protect any parts of  your vehicle which you don’t want scratched by the wood.

The wait time for getting your firewood in Overland Park is usually not more than a couple of days and if picking up you can usually get it that day.

You will need to call ahead whether picking up or having delivered.

Update 7/17/2016 : I have some seasoned wood available for those seeking firewood for their outdoor activities. As mentioned above I currently have Ash and Honey Locust.   Also available is seasoned Maple. All can be had in big pieces if you’re wanting an all-night bonfire,   or in the usual 16 to 20 inch pieces (I try for 18 inches but some are a bit off).  I mentioned this in case you need a small,  small piece that I could probably scrounge up an 1/8th or 1/4 cord of all 16 inch pieces.


Prices are for face cords  –

The term cord while yes means an area 4ft by 4ft by  8ft = 128 cubic feet:   it was created with the intent that cutting and splitting two stacks of wood that are cut 2ft in length and then stacked  4ft high and 8ft long.  It takes the same manual effort,  which is what makes up the majority of the cost of a cord of firewood,   to create those two stacks of wood that are 4ft high and 8ft long,   regardless of whether the pieces are 18 inches in length or 24 inches.

The pieces of firewood that I sell are (roughly) 18 inches instead of the old standard which was 24 inches.

No trees were killed in the making of my firewood (this year).

No wood sold this year has come from trees which were cut down for the sole purpose of being firewood.

Tip on starting your fire.

There is a reason they use the word “build” a fire.  What works best is to use small pieces (never use ones that are round) that have sharp or jagged edges such as the pieces which are split. Use many of these type of pieces and lay them so they are always crossing each other (never place them so they are all facing the same direction such as you would find in a box of toothpicks;  instead you want the exact opposite: chaos instead of order).


Once you have the fire going … you can then add the bigger pieces.  Round pieces are best used once the fire is going strong.  Even the most seasoned of round pieces can sometimes be resistant to your cause.

For overnight burning remember that knots burn longer than the other pieces so for that last log on the fire before bed … grab a particularly knotty looking piece.  It will likely be of some fair size anyway which will suit your purpose perfectly.

Getting smoke coming back into your house?
Your exhaust pipe likely needs to be warmed up.  Build a strong,  hot fire to begin with,  and that should sufficiently warm things up so that they exhaust properly.



About my prices

Despite great demand,   there simply isn’t enough money in firewood to merit trying to grow the business (IMHO,   it doesn’t take long before you realize you can make much better money in an abundance of different directions).   Which is why I suspect there aren’t any big businesses out there which are devoted to providing firewood to the public at any sort of discount in price when compared to what you can buy at a quickstop or grocery store.

When I started my prices were lower and I quickly found myself overwhelmed with orders.  I started doing this because I was getting so fat I was either going to have to join a gym or in my youth I hand-split firewood and it kept me in great shape,  so i chose the latter over paying to join a gym.

Since it is only me and I have no desire to increase the number of employees,  I have a limited supply to meet demand. Therefore I raise or lower my prices in accordance to the supply and demand equation.   When it starts getting too many calling I raise the price and vice-versa.

All that said,   NEVER GO WITHOUT FIREWOOD BECAUSE YOU CAN’T AFFORD IT IF THAT IS YOUR ONLY SOURCE OF HEAT!!!.   We will work out something,   just call me.    But I can’t help if you don’t make me aware of the situation.
