Its late June and I just bought 4 cords for the up and coming winter, after all you need to let wood finish seasoning stacked. All I can say is WOW, first time I am using Helverson but won't be the last. Great wood, great service, great price and full cords! Now I realize how bad I have been getting ripped off from the "other" guys. When I shop for wood I don't shop for the cheapest or the most expensive, I shop for the best value for my money and this is it for sure! Well done Helverson!!

We were delivered wet wood. Website claims to sell and deliver seasoned wood. It was far from seasoned, it was wet wood that does not lite and hisses. Used a moisture meter and tested over 6 pieces of wood. It read 60-80 percent saturated. Extremely disappointed. Contacted them via email, well see how their customer service is but I'm not expecting much. You gotta love when a local company takes advantage of its community members.

The first time we ordered wood from Helversons my wife didn't like them. The guy knocked on the door and the first thing out of his mouth was "where's my money." The wood was clean "but" I was told that it was "kind of seasoned" and hopefully I had some dry wood to burn with it - this new wood popped and hissed like a wet potato. After several other bad experiences we tried Helversons again - this time the wood was dry but, we were told that since we got "seasoned" wood all the dirt and dried bark and junk that was in it was part of the package. I sent pictures to Helversons and they basically told me to shove it and good luck with somebody else if I didn't like their wood. Nice guys!!!

I have pretty much the same complaint as the other person. I ordered 2 cords of "seasoned" wood but found out after it was delivered that it was the most wet wood I have ever seen. In addition to that the website says that the wood is nice and clean, free of dirt. Looking at my delivery you would think I ordered mulch on top of the wood. This guy has the worst wood around and I will not be ordering from him again next year. Stay away from him if you know whats best.

We have purchased firewood from Barry Helverson for the past 6 years. We have never been disappointed with the wood or the service we have received. In fact, we tell others how honest Barry Helverson is.

We bought 2 cords of wood from Barry Helverson. I asked him if we would be able to burn his wood THIS season, he said absolutely and claimed this was the best wood you could buy.

He was wrong. The wood he sold us very green wood. It literally drips moisture when 'trying' to burn.

In his defense he tried to give us some dry wood on top of what he already sold us, which was still not dry. We are stuck with 2 cords of very green wood in the middle of winter.

We will never use Helverson Firewood again. There is no room for a dishonest business in my book.

Pros: Can't think of any pros, because I'm too cold!

Cons: The told me the wood could be burned this season. He lied.
