New York – the city that never sleeps. No city in America invokes the imagination like New York. Endless sky scrapers, millions of diverse people, and yes, even a few fireplaces.

While many people may think that fireplaces don’t exist in a city like New York, you’re probably looking at this page because you know differently. There are countless wood burning fireplaces in and around New York. Despite being a busy place, many people love having the chance to come home and relax by a warm fire on a cold night.

The Best Firewood Available- Every Time

There are barriers to burning fires in New York city, however. People worry about the work involved with finding quality wood in a major city. Not only that, but in 2015 Mayor Bill de Blasio signed a law, stating that wood burning logs cannot have a moisture content of more than 20 percent, to insure lower emissions.

Fortunately, Cutting Edge Firewood has you covered. We take the mess and stress out of obtaining firewood in New York City, and deliver wood with an insanely low moisture content.

Benefits of Cutting Edge Firewood for New York City Residents

There are several reasons why Cutting Edge Firewood is the ideal solution for the people living in and around New York City:

  • Convenient to obtain: We take the mess and stress out of obtaining firewood. We ship our boxes of firewood directly to your home. You don’t have to explore the surrounding suburbs or look for bundles of wood at the corner deli for firewood. It arrives at your home.
  • Easy to Use: Each box of firewood contains everything you need for 2-4 enjoyable fire experiences. We include 4 fire starters, 8 pieces of kindling, and about 50 pounds of top quality firewood.
  • Extremely dry firewood: Fresh wood contains about 50% moisture, and properly seasoned firewood contains about 20% moisture. The problem is, seasoned firewood isn’t always properly seasoned and may still have 30-40% moisture content. Our rigorous drying process, however, means that Cutting Edge Firewood has about 5% moisture. This is way below Blasio’s legal requirements and will result in a far better fireside experience.
  • Less Emissions: Seasoned firewood will contain bugs, mold, and fungus. Our rigorous drying process, however, removes all impurities from the wood. It will burn cleaner, smell better, reduce creosote build-up, and create less emissions.
  • Safe to store inside: Most New York residents don’t have a large outdoor storage area for firewood. Fortunately, Cutting Edge Firewood is perfectly safe to store inside. It contains no bugs or mold, and it will create a pleasant aroma. You can choose to use the firewood as a decorative piece, or you can keep it in our boxes inside your closet.

As you can see, Cutting Edge Firewood boxes really are the perfect fit for New York city residents. It has never been easier to receive firewood and enjoy a great fire. Learn more about our different boxes or order them now to experience the difference yourself.

After several phone calls to Cutting Edge to make sure an Ultimate Package could be delivered to our home and not left at the curb (we have a very long driveway...), and getting those assurances, I placed my order. Placed the order by phone on Monday, and the wood was delivered today (Friday)!!! Not only was the wood brought all the way down our driveway, the driver of the XPO freight truck helped us get the wood up onto our front porch, which he did not have to do. The wood was very carefully stacked in the racks, then wrapped very tightly so the wood stayed put during transport. They really know how to pack their product for safe shipping. I was so impressed with the quickness of my order getting to suburban Philadelphia from Atlanta, and the helpfulness of the delivery person was above and beyond.Now on to the wood! My order contains a mixture of oak, hickory and cherry. I immediately started a fire using the cherry, and it was extremely easy to light. With the fire starter supplies provided, I used one match and had a roaring fire in less than 10 minutes! The aroma is so warm and welcoming! When I walked outside, I could even smell the rich cherry outside. Our neighbors must be envious! I am so pleased with this wood, and very impressed with the overall experience - from my many questions asked and answered before placing the order, to the communication once the order was placed, to the delivery and finally the fire!!! I will be a CEF customer for a long time to come!

Y’all! Look no further for your firewood and delivery needs. Cutting Edge Firewood was prompt in responding to my questions, and they worked hard to deliver my order within just a few days. (Thank you, Sara B.!) I was able to order online and choose from three kinds of wood — oak, cherry and hickory. They can include a pretty firewood rack if you need one (we didn’t, but that’s a nice feature!). Delivery was alerted by text and was right on time. Ben, the delivery person, was super friendly and stacked the wood for me. Cant wait to try this firewood out. We expect to be customers for years to come!!!

Looking through a google search for good firewood, I came across Cutting Edge Firewood. They have a great selection of wood in various packages that are very convenient. For my first time I chose the hickory logs. They arrived safely in a secured box. The logs were very big and could be cut down to size. After using I can say that the wood smells AMAZING and you can tell it is high quality. It kept us warm outside. I will definitely come back here due to great service.

I live locally in the Atlanta area. I placed my order around noon and I was not expecting the same day delivery, but I was shocked when my box came just a few hours after ordering. I had assumed you had to order earlier in the day but no they were on it. I was in need of hickory for smoking on my newly acquired grill. Home Depot, Walmart and Ace, Lowes etc are all sold out. People must be smoking/grilling a lot this summer with nowhere to go. The box was nicely packed. The wood is ready and seasoned. Easy to light on top of the charcoal. No fuel necessary.

Love the kiln dried firewood! Got hickory and it burns for hours. I don’t have to constantly maintain the beautiful fire, it does it on it’s own. I definitely recommend this firewood for a beautiful long fire that will make great memories. I live in Missouri and they will ship the wood to you!

Great folks with great firewood and incredible customer service. Firewood is truly dry and clean. Lights easy, burns well. We’ve tried the hickory and the cherry and both are excellent options! Packaging/rack is very sharp and a nice display on your deck/porch. Buy Cutting Edge Firewood, you won’t regret it!

I can't overstate how great the experience is buying from Cutting Edge Firewood. Great customer service, white glove delivery, and above all a superior product. This is our second season using their kiln dried hickory. It really does burn brighter, longer, and cleaner than any seasoned wood I've used before. Much less smoke. Worth every penny.

Firewood to Avoid in New York City

If you’re shopping around for firewood, then there are a few things we recommend considering. You will want to avoid certain types of firewood, and we’ll explain why.

Avoid softer woods: Firewood comes in both hardwood and softwood varieties. Some of the softer woods like pine, birch, poplar and spruce have less density, which means that they will burn much faster. Not only that, but softer woods can contain a tar-like substance that can contribute to creosote build-up. Even though softwoods might be cheaper, they are not worth it.

Avoid wet wood: Wood with high moisture content creates a terrible fireside experience. It creates more smoke, gives off less heat, smells musty, has higher emissions, and contributes to creosote build-up. Not only that, wood with moisture content above 20% is illegal to burn in New York.

Avoid seasoned wood: Although seasoned hardwoods are a better option than softwoods or wet wood, it still creates problems. First, seasoned wood is really the same thing as rotting wood. It won’t be as dense as kiln dried wood and it won’t last as long. Second, kiln dried firewood will have less moisture than seasoned wood. But most importantly, seasoned wood will almost always contain bugs, mildew, or fungus. You don’t want to store that in your home in New York.

Instead, choose kiln dried firewood from Cutting Edge. You won’t be disappointed!
