    Tools & Equipment

    To start this business, you’ll have to establish connections with suppliers who have access to lots of firewood. An interesting idea is buying hardwood and then cutting, splitting and delivering it based on your customers’ specifications.

    For this, you will need firewood processing equipment such as chainsaw, chainsaw sharpener, log splitter, splitting maul, splitting axe, cutting tools, chain sawmill, wood splitting wedge, reciprocating saw and a vehicle.
