Outdoor Storage

Fire wood is often kept outside to allow it to naturally season, so it may seem natural to store bags of fire wood open to the elements. But when handled incorrectly, even polythene bags can rip and tear. Fire wood stored in poor conditions will re-absorb moisture and deteriorate; eventually the logs may start decomposing.

Bags should be protected
from direct rain

Ensure fire wood is kept off the ground,
possibly stored on a pallet.
