Zero Carbon Footprint

Burning wood releases carbon. However, wood left on the forest floor rots and it too releases carbon. So, by processing this wood as a renewable energy resource and by utilizing the BTU's for heat, we help reduce the carbon footprint of firewood to zero.

Very friendly service and great prices too! Their wood smells awesome and everyone that comes over compliments on it as it seems to be perfectly aged. I'll never order from a different company. Jon's A-1 firewood is simply the best

I would never buy wood from anyone else but them the man about 30 yrs old with the new gmc pick up that works there had so Much knowledge Of the woods, he sold us a great batch of wood, we paid for the wood with a credit card and he delivered the wood the next day and carried all the wood up to are third floor condo, we bought wood from others in the past and end up throwing it out because it would not burn, when he came out to deliver the wood he saw what we bought last year and told me I bought cottonwood and pine he felt sorry and gave us extra wood free that he had on the truck a-1 is the best company for firewood

- Scott P.

These guys were great to deal with, delivered next day and were on time. The deliverer also stacked the wood neatly and was courteous. The wood seems to be good quality.
I'd recommend them.

Great information over the phone. Nice friendly person[al] touch. Very competitive prices compared to other local businesses. Solid oak logs throughout cord.

I just found these guys after years of getting substandard firewood. Their firewood is true oak, cherry, apple and maple. None of the garbage wood the tree services sell. It is properly seasoned and ready to burn. Not a green piece in my face cord. I picked it up on site but they do deliver. A good product at a good price. I recommend them highly.
