You may have seen us....

You may have seen our signs in front of a property we have treated for ticks, or maybe removed a 75' Oak Tree that precariously towered above, you may have seen one of our many trucks in our expanding fleet moving through town. 

But what you may not have seen was the meeting we had that morning or the laugh we shared before leaving our shop that day. You may not have seen the extra time we spent to check all of the equipment, checking the lights on each trailer and on each truck, sharpening each chain and fueling each saw. But what you most certainly did see, was a crew ready to work safely and efficiently. We take the time to survey your property and plan how we will remove the tree, where to position the trucks to minimize any damage that can be done to your lawn or any plantings below.

All too often you hear of tragedies in the news, a brief moment of carelessness causes someone their life. Taking the time to have a plan, the safety training to prevent an accident and the know how to safely remove even the most dangerous tree means that you won't have to worry or stress when you hire Rayzors Edge Tree Service. You will know the job will be done efficiently, affordably, but most importantly.. safely. 

So sit back, relax, and let Rayzors Edge Tree Service handle your next outdoor project. Call us today for a free estimate 203-258-5584

Kiln Dried Firewood

Kiln Dried Firewood

So my girlfriend and I rented a beautiful house with a bunch of friends in Willington, Vermont this past weekend. We booked a day at the mountain to go skiing.  Conditions couldn't be better!  It was also perfect for a throwdown. The contestants were; in the blue corner,  air dried wood, which was purchased in the spring by the owner of the house. In the red corner,  a young and hungry to heat, kiln dried wood. There was no match for air dried.  Kiln dried was unbelievably easy to light,  burned hotter, and overall looked nicer as it burned and when it was stacked next to the fireplace.  See for yourself.

 

10 Reasons To Heat With Firewood

10 Good Reasons To Heat With Wood

1.It's a renewable energy resource

Renewable means you don't run out. Renewable means you don't deplete the earth's resources. Wood is energy from the sun, stored by the tree as it grows. When you burn wood you are releasing this stored energy. In the dark of winter, it's like having a bit of summer sun on your hearth.

2.No global warming

When fuels burn they release carbon dioxide, the greenhouse gas responsible for global warming. Burning fossil fuels such as oil and natural gas is like pumping carbon dioxide from the centre of the earth into the atmosphere – a one-way trip. Trees absorb carbon dioxide as they grow. When wood burns, the carbon dioxide is released, only to be absorbed again by young trees. Because trees recycle carbon dioxide, woodburning just warms you, not the globe.

3.You're in charge

Stop writing checks every month to the energy utilities. Take control by heating with wood. In our climate, staying warm is right up there on the list of the most important things in life. Do you really want to leave something so important in the hands of a faceless corporation?

4.No more freezing in the dark

The big, centralized energy sources are not very reliable. When a storm interrupts the electrical supply, all the conventional heating systems are useless; the fancy heat pump falls silent, the gas furnace can't work. But the wood stove or fireplace keeps you warm and cozy and safe. Now a power failure is kind of fun; you get to use the candles.

5.Warms you like no other

The radiant heat from a stove or fireplace is like the rays of the sun. It warms you through and through. Come in from the storm and stand near the fire rubbing your hands together. It's one of life's small pleasures.

6.The romance of the flame

Sure it's a cliché, but that doesn't make it any less true. The soft glow of the fire is the favourite setting for an intimate conversation. It's the place where friends and family gather to talk and laugh in comfort. Gazing into the fire, your imagination is free to soar on flights of fancy or probe the depths of the soul. Take a break from the harsh world outside – you'll find solace there in the flames.

7.Raise your energy I.Q.

Flick the switch, turn up the thermostat. Now, what did that cost? What impact did it have on the natural world? What sins were committed in getting that energy to you? You're in touch when you heat with wood. That arm load will last the day. That log you placed on the fire is a tangible measure of the cost to the environment of keeping your family warm. It's the wood heat way of knowledge.

8.Heat a space, save some energy

Well-planned space heating saves energy. That stove or fireplace in the living room keeps you warm and cozy in the place you spend your time. The basement and bedrooms stay cool. Regardless of what you pay for energy, space heating with wood clips 25% right off the top.

9.Invest in your community

Spend a buck on oil, natural gas or electricity and you feed a corporate giant. Spend a buck on firewood and you feed a neighbor. Save a buck by heating with wood and you can spend that buck in your community. Heating with wood makes you richer in ways beyond counting.

10.It's cheaper!

We almost forgot to mention it. Wood is the cheapest heating fuel you can use if you don't live in a large city. Some people actually think the only reason we heat with wood is to save money. Poor souls, they miss so much of what is good in life.
