Kiln dried firewood is green wood that has been split and heated in large kilns to speed up the drying process, kill off any unwanted guests (bugs), and reduce the moisture content of the wood. Think of it as a giant oven that creates exceptional firewood every single time!
Kiln dried wood is easy to light, using 1 match you can get your fire roaring! It burns hotter and brighter, giving off up to 35% more heat. It's guaranteed to be free of all bugs, parasites, and mold making it safe to ship anywhere in the United States. With virtually no water weight, kiln dried firewood is also lighter making it easier to carry!
JMS stocks various varieties of wood with our most popular being all oak, which is a blend of red and white oak! If this is your first time ordering, we'll almost always recommend our oak blend for the best first time firewood experience.
Oak is one of the most abundant species of trees in North America, with more than 90 spread across the country. At JMS, we craft our all oak blend from only the best red and white oak trees that were removed for safety reasons, not because they were diseased.
Our All Oak firewood is the most popular option and for good reason:
- As one of the densest hardwoods, Oak firewood produces an incredibly high BTU (heat) and paired with easy lighting thanks to the low moisture content from being Kiln Dried.
- Oak produces a pleasant and mild smell that has been described as sweet, warming up any space!
