Storing Firewood To Make It Last

After reading the tip for buying firewood, I wanted to remind you how to keep the firewood "from going bad". The wood needs to be elevated off the ground and kept covered. Wetness from any source will cause the wood to get soft, become a magnet for roaches and other creatures. We split our own wood and keep at least two years in advance, giving the newer wood time to cure.

To prevent termites from from infesting your home NEVER store firewood next to your house. Always store it away from your house by at least 10 ft.
