Of my six suppliers, three are completely out and three are low, prices will skyrocket, and firewood is going to be very scarce. Once we get further on, you won't be able to get firewood at all.
Chantilly, VA (PRWEB) October 17, 2014
With winter just around the corner, Saunders Landscape Supply is urging homeowners to purchase their supply of firewood for the winter no later than October 31. There is already an extreme shortage of firewood among suppliers in the market, and waiting until the last minute to purchase firewood is likely to leave homeowners with few, if any, options when winter finally arrives. Prices on firewood have already started to steadily increase in supply stores across the industry, and as firewood supplies continue to decrease, prices will continue to rise.
Many residents, especially in the northern part of the country, remember the bitter cold winter last year that brought with it below freezing temperatures and heavy snow storms. Those who got the brunt of the cold and snow are determined to be prepared this year, and many are buying more firewood than they typically would to ensure that their supply gets them through what is expected to be another harsh winter. While these homeowners will be all set, this also means that supplies are dwindling sooner than expected.
"Of my six suppliers, three are completely out and three are low," stated Donald Saunders Jr., President of Saunders Landscape Supply. He also said that "prices will skyrocket, and firewood is going to be very scarce. Once we get further on, you won't be able to get firewood at all."
Not only is firewood going quickly, but the supply was also short to begin with. Common sources of raw materials for firewood were low this year, including construction projects, land clearing and extreme storms that uproot trees. Replenishing supplies isn't as simple as ordering more firewood, either. It can take over a year to season firewood, which burns much better than wood that hasn't been seasoned and dried out.
With prices steadily increasing as supplies continue to plummet, Saunders Landscape Supply urges its customers to act quickly so they don't miss their opportunity to purchase firewood for the long, cold winter ahead.
