Firewood storage tips: 1-Try to keep your wood covered with plastic, canvas, or some type of metal covering. 2- Keep it off the ground and don't let it touch your building. Wood keeps better when there is air circulation. Remember, firewood attracts insects and termites so it should never be stored directly adjacent to a wood building.
Types of Firewood: 1- Hardwoods The best type of firewoods to use are Oak, Walnut, or Hickory because they burn hot, and the longest amount of time. 2- Softwoods Pine, Cedar and Spruce are best used as kindling wood because they tend to burn quickly. Whichever type of wood is selected, try to make sure that it is dry and seasoned.
Comments about Alexander Mfg Co 3' Firewood Rack - 1/8 Cord Capacity:
Bought a 1/4 cord from firewood dealer and it filled the log holder just 5 inches short of the top. I do not think it will hold a 1/2 cord. Otherwise, it is great, easy to assemble, neat in the yard and the cover keeps the rain and snow off of the top, but allows air to circulate, so the wood continues to age.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Shopper: Does the cover keep the wood dry? It looks to be too short to keep all the wood dry.
