Tacoma FireLogs

Tacoma FireLogs

I wasn’t a believer until I did the research, burned cordwood myself all of my life, but,,,, Compressed sawdust Tacoma firelogs are superior to cord wood for wood stoves, fireplaces, campfires and more.
Conventional firewood is messy, inconsistent, and expensive

Tacoma Fire logs are 100% recycled wood fiber from a local lumber mill.
No waxes or binders, just wood under high pressure
Burn for hours but exact time depends on how hot you choose to burn them
super dry so you don’t waste heat evaporating moisture
Neat and tidy so no bark, insects or rodents in the wood pile.
And they are only $225.00 per ton
sorry no delivery available
Try them in boxes of 8 for $5.50
But save big by the ton
at $225.00
If $225.00 seems more expensive than firewood consider that each pallet contains 17 million BTU’s of heating energy and since Tacoma firelogs have single digit moisture content you are not wasting that heat evaporating excessive moisture in firewood
1 cord of bone dry Douglas fir contains 17.5 million btu’s but bone dry still means there is 20% moisture or so, you will waste 10-15% of that heat making steam and sending it up the chimney (Kind of the same thing as leaving the windows open with the baseboard heater on)
And that is the best case.
If you are buying unseasoned firewood which is most of what is out there for sale at this time of year, you will probably be getting 40% or even 50% water, and since water does not burn, most of the heat contained in the wood will go up the chimney while you are left wondering why the house is cold.
If you are already using products like North Idaho energy logs or Presto logs, you are on the right track, but the best prices you will find for them are around $320 per ton and as high as $470.00, they are round and hard to handle. Tacoma Firelogs stack nicely, offer more surface area per pound so they are more controllable and They are only $225.00 per ton!

each 1 ton Pallet is 42″ wide (fits between the wheel wells of most pickups), 48″ deep and 38″ tall
