All of the raw materials used to manufacture firewood come from land clearing and excavation and construction projects, or storms that take down trees and end up becoming firewood -- we have had little of either.
Chantilly, VA (PRWEB) September 30, 2014
Due to a shortage of firewood this year, Saunders Landscape Supply is recommending that homeowners purchase their firewood supply early on in the season. Those who wait to purchase firewood until the middle of winter could find themselves at a loss. The experts at Saunders Landscape Supply suggest that homeowners buy their firewood in bulk no later than October to avoid missing out.
Firewood not only adds a decorative touch to homes over the season, but also provide a great source of heat during the cold winter months. Having an extra source of heat will likely be necessary this winter, with sub-zero temperatures and widespread snow storms in the forecast for the coming months. Weather experts are predicting that the "polar vortex" that pushed freezing cold air into many parts of Canada and the northern United States last year will be back in full force this winter, as melting ice in the Arctic continues to propel polar air further south. These chilling weather predictions make it all the more important for homeowners to be prepared, especially those residing in northern states.
A lack of adequate firewood supplies this season adds to the need for residents in cold-weather states to stock up on firewood before freezing temperatures arrive.
"All of the raw materials used to manufacture firewood come from land clearing and excavation and construction projects, or storms that take down trees and end up becoming firewood -- we have had little of either," says Donald Saunders Jr., President of Saunders Landscape Supply.
Saunders predicts that the landscaping company, which typically supplies firewood to customers throughout the season, will run out of firewood before the winter is over. He urges customers to come in before the end of October to stock up on their firewood for the season. Otherwise, customers could find themselves without an adequate source of heat when the temperatures drop.
Another cold winter may be on its way, but homeowners can ensure that their families stay warm throughout the chilly months by preparing ahead of time. Stocking up on firewood before the cold hits gives homeowners peace of mind knowing that their homes will be warm however cold it gets outside.
