My Free Firewood is a new web-based service that connects wood users to tree services and landscapers to facilitate the transfer of free wood. Essentially in exchange for providing the free labor to rid tree services and landscapers of excess wood, subscribers can obtain free wood. There is no on-going charge for the wood, only an annual subscription fee of $100. This subscription fee covers our cost for maintaining and enhancing the service. For this annual subscription fee you will obtain the following:
One guaranteed cord of bulk wood during the enrollment year, and almost always available upon joining
Periodic notifications when free bulk wood is available in your area on a first-come, first-service basis.
How Does it Work for Subscribers
Upon subscribing and paying the annual $100 fee, you will be added to our database for inclusion into the free bulk wood notifications. Every time there is wood available in your area (based on zip code), you will receive a email alert notifying you of the address, amount of wood available, and any specific instructions for picking up the wood. After the wood has been taken away on a first come first serve basis, the alert will be taken down and the status of the free wood site will be labeled as "closed" . All wood pick ups are agreed to be on a first come first serve basis and nobody is guaranteed free firewood for any single notification.
How Does it Work for Wood Suppliers (Tree Service & Landscape Companies and Property Owners)
For companies, My Free Firewood provides you with an alternative to dumping fees for excess wood. By opting into the service, you can notify our subscribers, via the service, that you have free wood available. And, for property owners with excess wood, the service will work the same for you if you opt in. We will manage the notification process and include any specific instructions you have about pick-up process. Our service is entirely free for wood suppliers and any tree service company..
Free firewood notifications will be made via email messages based on subscribers' zip codes and proximity of wood to their location
Firewood availability is on a first come, first serve basis
Wood is green and not seasoned firewood at the time of pick-up. However all wood is firewood suitable as it will be hardwood.
Firewood supply is not guaranteed beyond the initial notification message but you most certainly will have opportunities for free wood throughout the subscription year.
Calling or messaging the provider prior to traveling to the location is advisable
Firewood providers instructions for pick-up will be provided in notification - please follow their requests
First free cord of wood will be supplied sometime during the annual enrollment period. We will do everything in our power to provide it to you immediately upon enrollment, however we can't guarantee this as wood supplies vary throughout the year.
Refunds will only be made at the end of the enrollment year if, and only if, you have not received your one free cord of wood. There will be no exceptions to this term.
An enrollment year is 365 days from the date of subscription and payment. After the one year, we will contact you to re-enroll for another year (subscription price is subject to change).
