When purchasing firewood in Victoria there are three main points you want to pay attention to to insure you recieve quality, seasoned firewood.
1 – Is it seasoned? Firewood needs to season properly before it is safe to burn in your fireplace. In log form it needs between 18 – 24 months to season.
2 -What species of firewood do you want? Generally most firewood distribution services in Victoria, BC offer Fir, Maple, Alder or Cedar. Maple or other hardwoods are the best and most efficient option for heating your home however they can be difficult to find. Fir is the most commonly sold firewood on the Island and is also a very good option.
3 – How much wood is in a cord? A true stacked cord of firewood measures 4′ x 4′ x 8′. Residents of Victoria are too frequently shorted wood and don’t even know it. To insure you receive your entire order we suggest buying your wood from a reputable local dealer and not from a random seller on Craigslist or Kijiji. By doing this you receive reassurance that your order will be fixed if things go wrong. Victoria Firewood Inc also delivers wood pre-stacked in custom built pallets that measure 1/2 cord each so you can see what you are getting before you pay for it.
