Q. That bug is in the Worcester area. I don’t want that bug here! Where is your wood from?

A. That bug is an Asian Longhorned Beetle. The federal, state and local officials are working to eradicate this beetle from spreading. They have set up a specific perimeter that certain species of wood cannot cross. All of our employees have completed the ALB compliance training. That being said all of our wood is sourced outside the ALB eradication zone from residential, commercial, municipal and state trees that we remove as part of our everyday schedule.

Q. When is my wood going to be delivered?

A. Our crews start delivering after Labor Day and the wood is typically delivered on Saturdays. Brian will contact you the Thursday or Friday prior to delivery to ensure you are ready to received delivery of the firewood.

Q. How do you know that is a cord of you loaded into the truck?

A. Brian Favreau, owner, has been in the firewood business for 22+ years. He loads each truck with a machine bucket. We have also calculated the capacity of each of our delivery trucks. When the wood is stacked one cord of wood measures four feet high by four feet wide by eight feet long and has a volume of 128 cubic feet. If the stacked wood does not meet or exceed this specification, we would love to know. We will come out view the amount received, how it was stacked and make it right.
