Whether for your fireplace, wood stove or campfire, good quality firewood is crucial for efficiency and safety. "Good quality," in terms of firewood means a few key features are needed, those include: wood that is seasoned or dry - meaning it is no longer green; wood that is clean - free of bugs, dirt and other debris; and wood that is dense or hard, like oak, providing for the most heat output and longest burn possible. Our firewood is all of that and more.
At Bob’s Firewood in Central Minnesota, we are the furthest thing from "green" when it comes to producing quality firewood. Owner and operator, Bob Lanners has been in the residential firewood supply business since 1973 and knows more than a thing or two about how to cut, transport, store, and burn firewood. As one of Minnesota’s longest-lasting firewood suppliers, we provide a variety of firewood options - split firewood, pole wood, ambiance wood, and fire starters - for all types of residential burning purposes.

In order to achieve accurate drying in two years time, dense wood, like oak, needs to be properly stacked. At Bob's Firewood we naturally season all of our firewood in a tried-and-true fashion. Our processed oak firewood - meaning it's already been cut and split to 16" lengths - is properly stacked in 12 ft long by 4 ft high rows, with two rows leaning against each other for stability. Two foot spaces are intentionally left between each double row allowing air and sunlight to naturally cure the wood.
When stacking we ensure that each piece of wood is securely placed to prevent toppling, while at the same time making sure that pieces are not stacked too tightly so airflow is still possible.
Our Pole Wood is also naturally seasoned (dried) for two years. It is cut into 8 foot or 12-16 foot lengths (full logs) and left to naturally dry in the sun.
A full truck load of processed firewood consists of 5 rows, each 4' H x 7' L x 16" W. This is the most common order for processed firewood that we receive.
