Winter is coming…got wood?
But mixed-up clichés aside, you might want to stock up on firewood to keep your home cozy and warm all season. Luckily, we’re reviewing the best firewood suppliers in Ottawa today.
You can also check out average costs in the next section and read some FAQs at the end of this listicle.
How Much is Firewood in Ottawa?
Firewood is usually sold by the cord (more on that in the FAQs) or face cord, which is around a third of a cord. Depending on the amount of firewood you need, you’re looking at spending a little under $500 for a full cord of firewood to last you all season.
Some suppliers also charge by the kind of firewood they offer, and if it’s fully seasoned and dried. And if you need your firewood stacked in your storage of choice, you can expect to pay extra for that service, as well.
We rounded up some cost averages in the region and placed them in the table below for your quick reference.
|¼ full cord||$140 - $150|
|½ full cord||$280 - $300|
|1 full cord||$440 - $470|
|2 full cords||$880 - $950|
Please note that some suppliers might charge for delivery, stacking, and other services. To verify the fees involved, It’s best to reach out to them first before ordering.

Firewood Ottawa has been supplying firewood to the Ottawa Gatineau area for nearly six decades now. It offers off-season organic landscaping mulch and stacking services, as well.
The company supplies completely dried and seasoned firewood to ensure better burning quality for homes and businesses. Each piece of wood is machine selected and trimmed to have consistent lengths and to ensure no mill waste is packed within a cord.
Espousing sustainable forestry practices, Firewood Ottawa harvests, seasons, and dries only all-natural premium wood. By ensuring no sap remains, it can assure clients of efficient firewood that burns longer so fewer cords need to be bought for a single season.
The company sells firewood by the face cord at a reasonable $120 each. Businesses can order firewood in bulk or wholesale, too.
Delivery is done every weekend and comes at an extra cost. They could be affected by weather changes, but Firewood Ottawa can arrange for alternative delivery dates.
Good wood, excellent service
“New customer. Great experience. Good wood and excellent service. I will definitely order from them again and highly recommend it.” – Sean Hanna
Very easy online order form
“A very good experience! It has been a bit of a struggle finding someone after my regular supplier had stopped doing firewood. I found these guys online. A very easy online order form put the order in Friday and they delivered on Sunday. Called in the morning and was here before noon. Wood seems fine and a good mix.” – John McInnis
2. Ottawa Firewood
|SERVICES||Delivery of soil & compost, mulch, sand, river stone, gravel, and firewood to homes and businesses|
|ADDRESS||1554 Carling Ave M289, Ottawa, ON K1Z 7M4|
|CONTACT NUMBER||1 (613) 897-4520 | [email protected]|
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday to Friday 8 AM - 9 PM|
Saturdays and Sundays 10 AM - 6 PM
Ottawa Firewood offers a convenient online delivery system for all its products including firewood, soil, sand, mulch, gravel, and river stone. First-time customers can receive a 10% discount using a promo code that’s right there on the home page.
In spite of its name (and primary product and service), this is an all-season company providing a variety of gardening and landscape supplies. It also offers a convenient next-day delivery service for both residential and commercial clients.
There’s an online shop for all the products with selections for type, volume, and quantity to make the purchasing process easier. As for its services, the page looks to be under construction so we’ll revisit that in the future.
We took a look at the firewood option and saw that they come in face cords from a single to ten orders. It came as a shock to see that one face cord costs a little under $260 which is more than double the average regional rate!
Still, with a guarantee of year-round delivery and dry mixed hardwood, we think Ottawa Firewood merits a space in this listicle.
3. Greely Tree Services
|SERVICES||Firewood, tree removal, tree planting, tree and hedge trimming, stump removal|
|ADDRESS||5775 Bank St, Greely, ON K4P 1B9|
|CONTACT NUMBER||(613)-574-0247 | [email protected]|
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday to Friday 2 PM - 6 PM|
Closed on Saturdays and Sundays
Greely Tree Services supplies firewood to Ottawa and its surrounding areas and offers a host of other tree-related services. The company offers arborist services, tree removal, trimming, cutting, pruning, surgery, planting, and stump grinding.
Its fully licensed and insured staff can give clients a free estimate after visiting their location and carefully assessing the work that needs to be done. These free quotes are applicable for both residential and commercial clients.
Another thing we like about Greely Tree Services is how it explains its drying and seasoning process for firewood. The result is 20% or less moisture content that ensures cleaner burning and less smoke and sparks.
What’s lacking is a price guide that could give customers an idea of how much the firewood sells and which quantities are available. Greely Tree Services is also closed on weekends which is ironically the best time to deal with tree-related concerns.
Showed professionalism and caring from the beginning
“Carl and his team are great! They showed professionalism and caring starting from the beginning when evaluating the work and giving me the quote. They arrived on time and showed me the progress to ensure what they do matches with what I want. They offered me three walkthroughs to ensure I am satisfied with what the trees and areas looked like after the trimming. The whole team members are very nice and for sure they will be my long-term contractor for the tree services. BTW, thanks to one of the neighbours who recommended Greely Tree services to me.” – Shirley Xuan
Very professional and courteous
“I cannot say enough great things about this Company!! Very professional and courteous! Would definitely recommend them!” – Heather Shore
4. Ken’s Firewood
|SERVICES||High volume firewood supplier specializing in long cut firewood and regular-sized residential firewood|
|ADDRESS||4355 Thunder Rd. Carlsbad Springs, ON K4M 3N4|
|CONTACT NUMBER||(613) 323-4518|
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday to Friday 7 AM - 4 PM|
Saturdays 7 AM - 12 noon
Closed on Sundays
Ken’s Firewood caters to both residential and commercial clients, but it produces long-cut firewood for a unique clientele. The company delivers them specially cut to fire up the ovens of pizza joints and bagel shops!
The downside is that its regular-cut residential firewood gets easily sold out (as of this writing, it’s currently not available until spring of the following year).
The company processes all types and sizes of hardwood logs to ensure good fuel for both fireplaces and ovens. After cutting and splitting them into consistently long pieces (42 to 44 inches long), it’s then dried, seasoned, and stored indoors to prevent moisture retention.
Clients can get their firewood delivered from Mondays to Saturdays but it’s best to contact the office if it can accommodate specific delivery dates in case of a firewood emergency.
There’s no pricing guide for any of its firewood products or services, but calling or texting Ken’s Firewood should yield answers.
Great to work with
“Dan is great to work with and his firewood has never let us down (residential fireplace). He gets busy in the fall so I’ve learned to beat the rush.” – Phil M.
Extremely quick to respond
“Great hardwood firewood. Burns nice. Extremely convenient delivery. Dumped the wood in the driveway. The delivery driver Doug was very friendly and helpful. Wore a mask on delivery. Dan was always extremely quick to respond and flexible to make delivery arrangements. I will be using their service every year for my firewood.” – Matt Murphy
5. Ottawa Cedar Lumber, Inc.
|SERVICES||Firewood delivery, custom sawing, custom planning, custom manufacturing, tree cutting- residential, farming, industrial, stump removal, chipping, grinding, custom hauling, custom floating|
|ADDRESS||2188 Dunning Road, Cumberland ON K4C 1M1|
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday to Friday 7 AM - 4 PM|
Saturdays by appointment only
Closed on Sundays
Ottawa Cedar Lumber, Inc. is a family-owned and operated sawmill and land clearing business. It has committed itself to the sustainable use of wood resources and environment-friendly practices.
The species the company uses for its end products include cedar, pine, and hardwood like oak, ash, hickory, and soft and hard maple. Clients can ask for custom products from these wood, which typically cover mulch, firewood, shavings, flooring, fencing and decking boards, and other rough or planned dimensional lumber.
Aside from custom planing, grinding, sawing, and chipping services, its team can also do stump removal, tree cutting for residential, farm, and industrial clients, and do custom hauling and floating.
It offers a separate dropoff or pickup service for firewood via its online quote form. However, there’s no base pricing information for the firewood cords, which is a bit of a letdown.
Great cedar wood for building organic raised beds
“Great Cedarwood for building organic raised beds, smells really good when it rains. Will buy more to raise them higher.” – Jeremy Daigle
Delivered quickly, was professional, efficient, and friendly
“Wow. A cedar company that provides good lumber to regular people at reasonable costs, in these covid times. Shout out to Gerry, who was very helpful and funny too. Patrice delivered quickly, was professional, efficient and friendly. All in all a good experience.” – Joan Ramsay
