Light the Best Fire with Smokeys Firewood

By Marina I. Jokic

For your home heating, camping, and outdoor fire pit needs, Smokeys Firewood provides top quality seasoned firewood that is dehydrated to the ideal humidity. In addition to their core business, Smokeys also offers tree and snow removal as well as remote log splitting.

The company's firewood is well known for its particularly high BTU's (British thermal unit), aesthetically pleasing appearance, and clean burning. In a nutshell, if you are looking for an enjoyable and hassle-free fire burning experience all season long, Smokeys is the right locale to visit.

Smokeys' owner Donald Estey makes sure that his clients always receive slightly more fire wood than they pay for to guarantee a strong cord with every delivery. Thanks to his customer-first approach, the majority of his business is composed of repeat clients and referrals.

"Historically, we have always maintained good pricing with a reasonable delivery fee," Estey said. "We provide wood year round for home heating as well as campfires and fire pits and do not raise prices during the main burning seasons; for added convenience we also have a self-service rack open twenty-four seven."

In December 2015, Smokeys became an authorized Hawken Energy, specifically of their outdoor wood furnaces in partnership with local businessman Steven Behan. Outdoor wood furnaces are becoming popular heating features of East Coast homes. Hawken Energy is a well-known manufacturer of affordable, top-of-the-line outdoor furnaces used to heat your home, barn, garage, pool, greenhouse, hot water tank or whatever else you need. The innovative Afterburner Technology has done away with chimney smoke and instead emits only steam.

Smokeys' tree and snow removal services are also in high demand. In terms of arboreal work, as long as there is no danger of the tree hitting the house or any power lines, Smokeys can perform the job. There is an additional fee to remove the tree from the property. In cases of snow removal, Estey takes a more limited number of jobs as he has only one snow blower.

"Quality firewood is essential to heating one's home as it has more BTUs than overly or under seasoned wood or that which has been thinly split," Estey said. "We perform limited tree removal [on] standing or downed trees, and will also bring the log splitter to any location and process your logs into firewood as well as stack [them] upon request."
