Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

Firewood

What is unseasoned firewood? Green or unseasoned firewood that is freshly cut and / or split, has a higher moisture content and releases less heat when burned. Dry or "Seasoned" firewood is wood that has been cut to length, split  and dried for over one year. The moisture content of firewood determines how it burns and how many BTU's are available for heating. Seasoned wood has between 25% to 20% moisture content. Unseasoned firewood is usually sold when fly-by-night vendors sell firewood at a very cheap price and market the firewood as seasoned. If you find firewood priced at an amount that is too good to be true then chances are it may be unseasoned. At Dobbelare Distributing we always guarantee our firewood to be seasoned and ready to burn at the time of purchase. What is seasoned firewood? Seasoned wood is firewood which has dried out to a sufficiently low moisture content to burn readily. Seasoning usually requires up to a year & some very dense hardwoods will require over two years to season properly. Seasoned wood burns hotter, longer & cleaner. Types of Hardwood Loggers harvest timber for sawmills (flooring, furniture, veneer) leaving the treetops for us to process. This allows us to know the types of wood in our inventory. Dobbelare Distributing deals mostly with Hardwoods such as Oak, Cherry, Hickory, White Birch, Maple,  which we deliver mixed or species specific and deliver and stack at to your location. How large is a cord of wood? A full cord is the amount of wood that will stack into 128 cubic feet. This is the equivalent of a stack 4 foot tall 4 foot wide and 8 foot long. This is about 2 full size pickup loads with the wood stacked to the top of the sides. Units of Measure Face Cord Face Cord = 1/3 of a Full Cord of stacked cut wood. Approximate Measurements: 4' High x 8' Wide x 16" Depth 1/2 Cord Half Cord = 1/2 of a Face Cord of stacked cut wood. Approximate Measurements: 4' High x 4' Wide x 16" Depth 1/4 Cord Quarter Cord = 1/4 of a Face Cord of stacked cut wood. Approximate Measurements: 4' High x 2' Wide x 16" Depth How do I store my firewood? For best results, wood should be stacked off the ground, in an open area exposed to sun and wind. Cover just the top of your wood pile to protect from rain and snow. Does heating with wood affect environment? According to most environmental sources, burning firewood for heat will not hurt the environment since it releases no more greenhouse gases than would be produced if the wood simply rotted on the forest floor. Trees actually recycle carbon dioxide absorbing it as they grow and release it when they decompose or burn. What does BTU rating mean? A British Thermal Unit (BTU) is the amount of heat energy needed to raise the temperature of one pound of water by one degree F. This is the standard measurement used to state the amount of energy that a fuel has as well as the amount of output of any heat generating device. So, the higher the BTU number for the variety of firewood (Oak) shows that it will produce more heat than compared to a lower number BTU variety(Pine). What length is the firewood you sell? Pieces are already split and cut to a length of 16-19 inches.  How much wood do I order? Our average customer burns 1 cord per season which means fires 1 to 2 times per week give or take during the winter months. Can I pick up the firewood? Yes.  Only in the Chicago area, our lot is not attended regularly so we would need to coordinate a time and date to meet up to load the pallets onto your vehicle. Pick up is not currently available in St Louis areas. What areas do you deliver to? Anywhere in the Chicago or St Louis metro area. See below:  St Louis Area Afton MO Arnold MO Ballwin MO Belleville IL Brentwood MO Chesterfield IL Chesterfield MO Clarkson Valley MO Clayton MO Cottleville MO Crestwood MO Creve Coeur MO Dardenne Prairie MO Des Peres MO Edwardsville IL Eureka MO Fenton MO Florissant MO Frontenac MO Glen Carbon IL Glencoe MO Glendale MO Granite City IL                Is there a delivery fee? Delivery is included within 25 miles of Center city of Chicago or St Louis. Don't be Fooled by Low Firewood Prices. Even seasoned firewood delivery purchases can be misleading. If you get a quote that is $10 or $25 cheaper, but you end up paying for delivery, stacking or lower quality of wood, then it's not a cheaper price or better deal. And if a price is unbelievably low, it’s probably not one year aged and premium seasoned firewood.   Do I need to be home when delivery is made? No.  The delivery can be arranged ahead of time, we just need the spot marked where you want the pallets of firewood to be placed. Where will you put the firewood? We will place the pallets of firewood using our equipment at your stacking location or as close to your stacking location as possible.  We generally need an eight foot wide access gate and flat, even terrain to maneuver the equipment on.   What type of wood works best for smoking meats? Hardwoods of oak, hickory, cherry and pecan work best. What should I use to start my fire? In a normal size fireplace or stove take three medium to small sized pieces of wood.  Place two pieces side to side on the bottom and place the third piece across the top of the other two pieces.  Then place ample amounts of newspaper under and around each piece. What form of payment do you accept? Cash, check, and major credit card are accepted. When is payment due? Payment is due at pickup or delivery of the firewood Our Guarantee Dobbelare Distributing guarantees our wood to be seasoned and of the highest quality hardwood that is ready to burn!
