When toting wood into your home to keep on hand for those days when the weather is below freezing and you don't want to be outdoors anymore than you have to can cause quite a mess. Even the wood stack itself seems to be dirty some days. Sometimes it seems like wood chips can be found in nearly every nook and corner of your home. So how can we keep those wood stacks contained and as neat as possible?
One tip to help keep wood chips and dirt off of the floor and from being tracked around your home is to have a large boot tray setting underneath your firewood rack. This tray will catch everything that falls off of the wood, keeping it contained until you are ready to clean it up. Some people keep these wood chips to use as a fire starter helper.
Also be sure to check any wood for signs of bug infestation. These should either be put directly into the fire or not stored in your home. If you leave these pieces of wood in your firewood rack then you are inviting the bugs to warm up and spend the winter in your home.
