About Cumming, GA

Cumming is a city of about 5,430 residents, according to a 2010 census, that's located in Forsyth County, GA. The city has origins dating back to 1833, during which two 40-acre lots of land were issued by the Georgia State Land Lottery. Referred to as Lot 1269 and Lot 1270, they were purchased by local judges who wanted to turn the area into an incorporated community.

Cumming became a popular area for gold prospectors throughout the 19th century, especially during the 1840s. As gold prospectors flocked to the area, banks were built to assist prospectors in turning their gold nuggets into cash. Cumming experienced an economic depression, however, during the well-known California Gold Rush, as prospectors shifted their attention to The Golden State. But in the years to follow, Cumming has once again rose to become a popular area for families and businesses alike.

Kiln-Dried Firewood in Cumming, GA: What You Should Know

Nothing compares to the sight, sound and aroma of a wood-burning fire. Whether you build it inside a fireplace, fire pit or a stove, it will provide you with a uniquely relaxing experience. Wood-burning fires have a captivating appearance that's characterized by red and orange flames. They also produce a distinct "crackling" sound that many people find soothing to the ears. Of course, wood-burning fires also produce a unique aroma that fills the surrounding space.

But it's important to use kiln-dried firewood at your Cumming home. Kiln-dried firewood, including the kind sold here at Cutting Edge Firewood, contains a lower moisture content than green and even air-dried firewood. When firewood is kiln dried, it's placed in a pressurized vacuum chamber where it's exposed to heated air. The hot air forces moisture out of the wood, making it drier and, thereby, improving its performance as firewood. Kiln-dried firewood takes less effort to light, burns longer and produces more heat than green and air-dried firewood, making it recommended for your Cumming home.

How to Start Fires (The Easy Way)

You don't need lighter fluid to start a fire. On the contrary, lighter fluid or other accelerants isn't recommended because they increase the risk of bodily injury while also exposing you and anyone else around the fire to toxic fumes. Assuming you have kiln-dried firewood with little or no moisture, you can easily start your fire using a small amount of tinder and a single match.

To easily start a fire, arrange your kiln-dried firewood so that there's space underneath. Next, place some tinder in this space underneath your firewood. Dryer lint, wood shavings, grass and pine needles all make excellent tinder. When you're ready to start your fire, light a match and place it on the pile of tinder. This should ignite the tinder, at which point the heat will rise above to ignite your firewood.

 

Did You Know? Things You Can Do With Leftover Firewood Ash

Once your fire has died out, you'll probably have some ash leftover. Assuming it's completely cold -- this can take up to 48 hours -- you can dispose of your firewood ash in a metal can or container. However, there are other things that you can do with your leftover firewood ash as well.

Firewood ash makes excellent garden compost, for example. It contains lots of minerals and nutrients that plants need to grow. If you have a compost bin, you can toss your firewood ashes in it to increase its potency. You can also use firewood ash to repel pests in your garden. For some reason, common garden pests like slugs and snails dislike firewood ash. By sprinkling a perimeter of ash around your flowers and plants, you'll protect them from pests such as these.
