How to sale Firewood

For the anxious nature lover who likes a bit of hard manual labor, starting a garage business by cutting and selling firewood is a solid option. If you play with intelligence and it is done on a small scale, a firewood business can be operated cheaply on weekends. That will allow you to earn a passive income.

Collect or purchase the basic tools for felling trees

A hammer, at least two division wedges, a sledge hammer, a wooden ax, a hatchet, a hacksaw, a best chainsaws, a can of gasoline, a tool for sharpen bike saws and a rasp to sharpen the axes.

Decide if you will operate on a scale that will require a wood splitting machine.

Even the cheapest slitter costs US $ 350, but it could be necessary if you intend to spend the weekend cutting or delivering wood.

Buy a jeep, a van or a light trailer if you do not already have one. You need a vehicle to pick up and deliver the wood.

Look for free wooden supplies.

People often announce fallen trees. Which are sometimes already cut into slices, and what they want is to take them free of charge; you can find these ads in the classifieds and on the Craigslist.org website. The fallen trees in your community can also be a good source for collecting firewood.

Using your tools, cut the fallen trees into slices of the right size for the chimneys, and cut them into logs. Pile them in a dry and protected place, such as a garage, shed or hut, and leave them for the season for at least six months.

Advertise your business, starting in your own neighborhood, with brochures at hardware stores and coffee shops.

Plan to spend most of your time from late fall to late winter delivering wood, not splitting it.

Tips

If you want to grow and convert your firewood business into a full-time company. Consider combining it with a tree removal company. The main idea is that you should always try to reduce costs by collecting all the wood free. The price of wood must depend on local prices.

Warnings

Cutting down trees and cutting logs is dangerous because it involves hammers, axes, chainsaws and the falling of heavy objects. Always take all precautions for your own safety and wear safety glasses.

Any doubt or idea leave it to me in the comments that I always love to read, and especially learn new things together.
