Free Firewood- Finding Gold in the Burbs

10 Dec , 2015   Video

This is an awesome deal for people that have a wood burning fireplace or wood stoves. Free firewood! Why buy it when it’s being given away for free.IMG_9796IMG_9739

Whenever I head back home to the suburbs I drive around the neighbourhood or look online for free firewood. It’s a win-win scenario. I don’t have to worry about cutting a tree down or wasting money on gas for a chainsaw and the homeowner doesn’t pay to have the wood disposed of at the green waste dump.Splitting-wood

Go online to Craigslist or Kijiji  type in “firewood” in the Free section. You will then see a bunch of listings from homeowners advertising free firewood to be picked up. Fire off a quick email and then head down and load up your vehicle. It’s easy. No cutting down trees, no working a chainsaw, no wasting money on fuel and if your lucky, you might find a hardwood like Maple, Alder or Oak. When properly dried, hardwoods burn hot.  If you have a truck or trailer it makes everything so much easier.

IMG_9754In my area it costs $350 for a cord of wood. That is a stack of wood that is 4 feet wide by 4 feet tall by 8 feet long. Boy, that’s a lot of cash for something you can do yourself.

Thanks for watching!
