Firewood Permit Requirements in Canada
Burning wood for a campfire or bonfire is both a privilege as well as a Canadian national right. Canada’s forest system being as vast and beautiful as it is, makes it especially momentous when one is able to interact with nature and “live off the land”.Cutting and burning wood for fuel offers rewards that is hard to find anywhere else.
However, one cannot just go around chopping up trees and starting fires. Maintaining our forests requires a strategy accompanied by regulations. In most Canadian areas, permits are required to cut your own wood for fuel. Firewood permit requirements in Canada vary from Province to Province. Please select your Province/Territory below for more detailed information.
Firewood Storage – Wood Logs
To assist you in purchasing or providing the best firewood, we will have articles detailing how to properly store green and seasoned wood, as well as green and seasoned wood logs. One might think it is very easy to store wood, but there are a lot of factors that go into producing burn-ready wood. If your wood is not appropriately cared for, stacked well and stored properly, there are many hazardous issues that can occur. With the information provided here at Firewood.com, we hope to make all your efforts positive!
Green & Seasoned Wood
The number one factor in safety and successful wood burning is moisture content. Wood must be seasoned to burn safe and properly. Once the wood has been cut, it’s considered “green.” Green wood is extremely wet and its weight is mostly moisture and sap. Wood needs to be low in moisture, roughly a quarter of its weight, to be used as firewood and burn properly, which means it is “seasoned.” Seasoned firewood happens naturally once it has been cut, stacked and stored accurately
Also, We will have information, tips, and reviews of wood cutting equipment. Everything from the purchase and use of a Chainsaw, firewood splitter, firewood moisture meter, firewood rack, and many more items.
Measuring wood – End the confusion!
Have you ever attempted to purchase firewood only to become more confused the more you read and talked to people? Everyone using different measurements and terminology only compounds the confusion. You can’t be expected to be a expert, so my advice to you is to learn the basics the best you can and then use your terminology with all your inquiries. Force the vendor to speak on terms you understand.
A basic starting points are that a Cord of wood is – 4’x4’x8′ = 128 Cubic feet, and a Half Cord – 4’x4’x4′ = 64 cubic feet
We do have detailed information in our blog regarding measurement requirements of firewood and advice to save you money if you feel adventurous.
