Firewood Pile-Tree Service in Lexington, Nicholasville and Versailles Ky.

Firewood Sales and Delivery in Lexington, Nicholasville and Versailles

A Professional Tree Service has been providing quality precut firewood to the Lexington, Nicholasville and Versailles areas for years. We have become known for our quality mixture of firewood harvested locally from trees such as oak, ask, cherry, Hackberry and Maple. With pieces ranging from 14 to 20 inches long our firewood is cut to fit in most fireplaces found in the Lexington, Nicholasville and Versailles area homes.

Good for the environment

All of the hardwood that we use at A Professional Tree Service has been re-purposed, meaning that the wood used would otherwise have been discarded. We gather prepare and store firewood from those trees in the local area that were already going to be cut down because of residential or commercial needs. This method of harvesting for firewood helps to preserve our natural resources that have made our home in the bluegrass such a beautiful place.

Storage of your firewood

At A Professional Tree Service we recommend using a firewood rack or firewood storage shed to store your firewood. A firewood rack can be purchased at any number of retailers including Home Depot and Lowes. These retailers also sell firewood storage sheds to help keep your firewood protected and insect free. Depending on your property, some of our customers in the Lexington, Nicholasville and Versailles areas like to have their wood stacked between two trees providing that your trees are approximately 8 foot apart. We highly recommend keeping your firewood covered with a tarp or another method to keep rain and snow off from the firewood. Keeping your firewood clean and dry is the best way to have your firewood ready to go when it is needed.

What not to do with your firewood

We do not recommend throwing your firewood into a pile because this lends to poor air circulation around the firewood and can cause a buildup of moisture, mold and insect infestation. Damp firewood is more likely to cause excessive smoke and an unpleasant smell if mold and mildew has built up on your firewood.

Storing your firewood indoors, and in some cases in your garage, can open your home up to wood boring insects that are known to flourish in the Central Kentucky area. We recommend to keep your firewood stacked several feet from your home and, if possible, in an elevated rack to reduce the firewood’s exposure to these insects.

Firewood best practices

In addition to proper storage of your firewood at your Lexington, Nicholasville and Versailles home we recommend a few best practices to help make sure that your wood-burning season stays trouble-free:

Always use local, dry firewood. There are those companies that ship large quantities of out-of-state firewood that has been sitting in a pile for months. This firewood can easily be infested with insects and pathogens that could be harmful to your family, pets and home. Always use a local, trusted source for your firewood.

Burn the oldest firewood first. Taking the time to organize your firewood pile will make your firewood a less desirable breeding ground for these wood boring insects and pathogens. By utilizing a first-in-first-out method you will significantly decrease the chances of infestation. By using a local firewood supplier such as A Professional Tree Service you can wait longer to re-order your next firewood supply because we generally can deliver same or next day service.

Give your firewood good shake. Right before you bring in your firewood to burn give it a good shake or drop it on the concrete to shake off any loose critters that may be holding on. Often times when you throw the firewood in the fireplace, especially an open floor level fireplace; critters can come running out. So give your firewood a good shake before you bring it in your home.
