Tips for Stacking and Storing Firewood
Enjoy the wonderful heat wood heat can offer by properly stacking and storing your firewood.
Cut into proper lengths and size
When splitting firewood logs, keeping them all relatively like-sized will make stacking them later on easier. Split the wood into easily-managed sizes. Pieces that are too large will be difficult to carry, stack and maneuver. Before splitting the wood, measure the opening on your woodburner or fireplace to ensure you aren't cutting your logs too large to easily fit.
Don't stack firewood against the side of the house
Stacking your firewood against your home can invite unwanted critters to enjoy the warmth inside. Black Widow and Brown Recluse spiders are notorious for loving a good woodpile. Other small critters (especially mice and rats) will also see a stack of firewood as a wonderful place to hang out all winter and you definitely don't want them in such close proximity to your home.
Firewood stacked against the side of a home can cause damage to the home's siding and or foundation. Firewood should be stored about 4-10 feet from your home - away from the siding.
Stack the firewood properly
When stacking your firewood cross-stack the logs to allow air to flow better through the woodpile. Proper airflow will help reduce moisture and deter those pests that adore a good woodpile. Cross-stacking simply means alternating the direction of each row.
Stack the firewood on top of wood or metal rails or lengths of lumber placed parallel to each other. This will keep the stack of firewood up and out of contact with the ground which will in turn keep the wood from soaking up moisture from the ground.
Your firewood should not be stacked higher than four feet. A woodpile that is too high will pose a safety hazard. Four feet is a manageable height for a normal-sized adult to both stack firewood and retrieve logs for burning. Make the time to restack the logs in your woodpile periodically throughout the winter.
Cover your firewood and keep it dry
Keep your firewood under an enclosure or covered with a tarp. Keep snow brushed away from the woodpile to keep the wood as dry as possible. If the firewood has gotten too damp to burn well, move a small amount into your garage or a utility room to dry. Allow this wood to dry out for about a week before you burn it.
Safety and final thoughts on firewood
When using a fireplace or a woodburner, regularly test your smoke detectors and replace batteries regularly. Be sure to store any firewood that you bring inside in a fire-resistant container. Keep a fire extinguisher nearby and know how to use it should a fire get out of hand.
Follow these tips for keeping your firewood dry, protected and stacked properly for a warm and cozy winter.
