Where To Buy Firewood Nyc

Moving untreated firewood is one of the main ways invasive pests and diseases spread to new areas. Many people take wood from their properties as they head out to camp, hunt, etc., but most don't realize their wood may be hiding the eggs, larvae, spores, adults, or even seeds of invasive threats. Transporting infested firewood allows invasives to spread further and faster than they would have on their own. In 2009, a regulation (leaves DEC website) was enacted to prevent this accidental and often long-distance spread by limiting the transport of firewood.
The regulation pertains to all species of wood, cut or not cut, split or not split, that is destined for use as fuel. Logs would only be subject to the regulation if their intended use is as firewood.
Origin is where the wood was grown. Source was specifically created for producers of firewood since many acquire their wood from multiple origins. A firewood producer may collect wood grown within 50 miles of their business and then declare their business as the source. They must keep records for at least two years detailing the amount of wood collected and from where, and they must provide labels or receipts to their customers with their business address and contact information. See an example of source documentation for a producer (PDF).
Source, origin, or heat treatment documentation are required during transport and may be discarded once the firewood has arrived at its destination. If people plan on moving firewood to multiple sites, they should retain documentation until all the firewood is used. No documentation is needed for firewood that is used on the same property from where it is cut, unless it is transported on public roads from one area of the property to another.
Seasoning firewood (storing it cut and piled and letting it air-dry for a period of time) is not a proven way to eliminate potential invasive insects or diseases and is not an acceptable treatment for firewood that will be transported away from its source or origin.
Kiln-drying alone is not regulated, meaning times and temperatures vary between producers. The process does not necessarily raise the internal temperature of the firewood to 71 C (160 F) for 75 minutes, which is required to be considered heat-treated.
Several states and jurisdictions have imposed regulations on the movement and/or importation of firewood for the same purposes that New York State has. Firewood regulations currently exist in various forms in Pennsylvania, Vermont, Maine, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, and Maryland. Many other states are considering similar actions and have outreach and awareness campaigns asking users not to move firewood. The Canadian government has had a ban in effect for several years on the import of any firewood into that country that has not been heat-treated to their specifications.
Federal and state quarantines for individual pests (such as oak wilt and Asian longhorned beetle, for example) regulate host materials for those species. You must follow the more restrictive rules for firewood transport between the quarantine and the firewood regulation. If you can move 50 miles before reaching the boundary of a quarantine, then the firewood regulation prohibits further movement of the wood. If you reach a quarantine boundary before you reach 50 miles, then the quarantine superseded the regulation, preventing further movement. As quarantines are expanded, lifted, etc., the NYS firewood regulation will continue to be in effect.
Under the Environmental Conservation Law, violations of these regulations are subject to a $250 fine, plus a $100 civil penalty and up to 15 days in jail. Untreated firewood found being moved in violation of this regulation may be ordered to be returned to its source/origin or confiscated and destroyed by law enforcement officers.

The Clements have operated the firewood business full-time since 2006. They also broker sales of pallets to a few customers. Annual revenues are about $750,000, split about evenly between firewood and pallet sales.
The old mill consists of about 5 acres, half on one side of the road and half on the other. The equipment was sold off in 2015. The old mill building now is used to store finished firewood. A second building contains an office and shop.
The firewood processor is set up outside in the log yard. They have a Prentice 180 knuckleboom loader mounted on another truck in the log yard for unloading and handling logs. They have a Bobcat S850 skid-steer loader that does double duty, retrieving logs and loading them onto the live deck of the firewood processor, and also loading their dump trucks for deliveries. The Bobcat bucket holds one face cord of firewood. One dump truck can hold eight face cords, and the other, 10. The Clements also have a flatbed truck for hauling pallets.
When Andrew was interviewed for this article in early February, they had just begun operating a new Kiln-Direct firewood kiln a week earlier. They are the only firewood supplier north of Syracuse now offering kiln-dried firewood, according to Andrew.
The Clements elected to invest in a firewood kiln for several reasons. One is that in some heating seasons, they have come close to running out of seasoned firewood by the end of the calendar year; with a kiln, they can always offer dry firewood.

Untreated firewood grown in New York may not be transported more than 50 miles (linear distance) from its source or origin unless it has been heat-treated to 71 C (160 F) for 75 minutes. Origin refers to where the wood was grown. Source is for producers of firewood to help account for wood from different origins that may become co-mingled as the firewood is processed. Producers must maintain records of where they acquire wood from and ensure the origins are within 50 miles of the source, which is usually the address of their business.
If purchasing and transporting untreated firewood, it must have a receipt or label that identifies the firewood source. Consumers need to use the source to determine how far the firewood may be transported.
Any law enforcement officer can enforce this regulation and violations may result in a ticket that carries a $250 fine in addition to other penalties. Untreated firewood moved more than 50 miles may be ordered to be returned to its source/origin or confiscated and destroyed. Failing to follow the regulation could also lead to greater impacts well beyond a ticket fee, such as:
If the dealer does not have any permanent address but only lists a PO Box or cell phone number, you might want to be cautious. Someone who doesn't want you to know where they are located may be someone who is trying to pull a scam. If you have a tough time getting through to place an order, imagine how difficult it might be if you have a problem. You may want to avoid dealing with that supplier. If a supplier will not commit to a set delivery time, there may a reason they don't want you to be there when they drop off the product. You may want to be careful dealing with that supplier. If the price is so low, it seems like a steal...you may be the one who was stolen from.
You should also be aware that it is unlikely that anyone can haul a cord of wood in a standard pickup truck. A cord is four by four by eight feet (128 cu. ft.) and is a lot of wood. In order to compensate for the wheel wells, a pickup would need to be loaded over four feet high with wood. Most standard pickups can't safely carry the weight of a full cord. In addition, the wood is generally not \"ranked and well stowed\" when loaded on the truck. It will typically lose another 15-20% when properly stacked. This applies equally to dump trucks. Random stacking significantly increases the size of air spaces between pieces and is one of the primary ways that firewood customers are cheated.

A. Here are some guidelines from New York State Agriculture & Markets. Whether you use it to heat your home or just burn it occasionally in your fireplace, you should be a smart shopper when you purchase firewood.
To be sure you have a cord, stack the wood neatly by placing the wood in a line or a row, with individual pieces touching and parallel to each other, making sure that the wood is compact and has as few gaps as possible. Then measure the stack. If the width times the height times the length equals 128 cubic feet, you have a cord of firewood. Be aware that each time you restack a pile, the dimensions will change a little because of the differing air spaces between pieces.
Seasoning or drying - Seasoned or dry firewood has many benefits over green or freshly cut firewood.
