Q. This winter I plan on using my fireplace more to try to heat my home. What do I need to know about purchasing firewood? S.M., Levittown.
A. This is the time of year when lots of folks call The Bucks County Weights and Measures Office about firewood. If consumers intend to use the wood to burn this season, make sure the purchase is seasoned firewood. If you plan on using the wood for the following winter you can buy green wood and cut and split it and allow it dry out.
