If you are like me, and you have pondered this question about whether it is better to purchase firewood from a firewood provider or whether it is better to prepare the firewood for yourself, then you are definitely going to enjoy reading this article because we have the answers for you. An important note is that there is no standard answer but one way or the other because like most other issues that we ponder, it is not a binary issue that can be satisfied by a simple yes or no. There is a lot of nuance that goes into answering this very question but with one of the answer you will probably not regret making the decision that you make at all. To avoid getting even more cryptic about such a straight forward question, lets us immediately delve further into the answer to this very important question.
First and foremost, there are some factors that would make it better for you to purchase the firewood that you need or to prepare the firewood that you need for yourself. There are also a set of different solutions, the best of which is a hybrid kind of solution where you shall actually buy the wood and then prepare it so that it is good for your use. If you choose to purchase the firewood, it is mostly because you do not have access to the firewood and you would just want to get the final product in your fire place without much fanfare. In such a case, if you for example live in the Perth area or its environs, then you would simply look for firewood in Perth and have it delivered to your premises. Of course, this is not the only solution if you do not have access to the firewood. If you for example have access to some land or space where you could season the firewood by yourself, you could simply purchase the logs and then prepare them by seasoning them as you would want them using the various techniques that are out there for people who want to prepare their own firewood. The other solution that you have for ending up with the firewood that you need is simply making sure that you cut the wood from your own compound and then prepare the firewood by yourself. This is the most labour-intensive solution and time-consuming solution as well because it will certainly take you a lot of time and effort to eventually have the firewood burning in your fireplace. Essentially, preparing firewood can take as long as 6months to a year to prepare depending on certain conditions.
If you do not have the time to prepare the firewood yourself, and by ‘prepare firewood’ I mean seasoning it so that it sis dry and ready to be used in the fireplace, then you should definitely go for the easiest option and simply purchase the firewood instead. It is definitelynot hat expensive to do so especially considering all the time and effort that you could save doing other more important things in your life.
