Kiln-Dried Firewood

The History of Lake Wylie, South Carolina

The lake was first created in 1904 when the Catawba Power Company built the Catawba Dam and Power Plant in nearby India Hook, South Carolina. The dam impounded the Catawba River, so the lake was originally named Lake Catawba.

At the time of the dam’s construction, W. Gil Wylie was serving as the president of the Catawba Power Company. Originally a doctor and surgeon, later in life Wylie became interested in engineering and the process of converting water into electricity. In 1905 the Catawba Power Company became part of the Southern Power Company.

The Southern Power Company raised the level of the dam in 1924 and built the new Catawba Hydroelectric Station to replace the original. This new facility increased the surface area of Lake Catawba from 668 acres to a whopping 13,400 acres. The Southern Power Company later merged with Duke Power Company in 1927.

In October of 1960, the lake was renamed Lake Wylie in honor of W. Gil Wylie, one of the founders of the original Catawba Power Company that created the lake.

Today, Lake Wylie is a popular destination for the residents of nearby Charlotte, Fort Mill, Rock Hill, Gastonia, and more. Whether it’s fishing, boating, paddleboarding, or kayaking, Lake Wylie is the perfect place to relax and have fun with family and friends.

Speaking of relaxing—is there anything more delightful than spending time with your loved ones around a good fire? And whether it’s an indoor fireplace, outdoor fire pit, or cooking with wood on the grill, you won’t find anything better than firewood for sale

Why is Cutting Edge’s Kiln Dried Firewood the Best in Lake Wylie?

If you live around Lake Wylie or frequently travel there, you may be tempted to use green or seasoned wood in your fireplace or outdoor fire pit. But most people don’t realize that fallen wood is high in moisture, meaning the fire will be super smoky and likely lead to a build up of creosote in your fireplace (which over time can be extremely dangerous). Also, using seasoned wood could mean bringing mold or pests into your home.

Instead, for the best quality wood, fire, and customer service, try firewood for sale. So what exactly makes our wood so good?

For starters, all our firewood has gone through a rigorous kiln drying process. What does that mean, you ask? When firewood is kiln dried, it’s placed inside an oven-like drying kiln in which moisture is extracted from its pores. As a result, the wood is not only easier to light, it also burns cleaner, hotter, brighter, and with less smoke.No risk of mold or pests—just firewood for sale or firewood for cooking

If you have ever struggled to get a fire to start, if you’ve wondered why your fire was so smoky or so smelly, then it’s because you were not using quality wood. Cutting Edge Firewood is consistently the best, you won’t be disappointed.

In addition to our best-in-class firewood, folks love Cutting Edge because of our super-easy delivery process and remarkable customer service.
