Albany-- The coldest air of the season is now arriving in south Georgia, and that has many of you stocking up on firewood. Daniel Loving, Junior who owns Brickhouse Tree Service has seen a huge spike in demand for firewood. 

In the last three days, he has averaged six loads per day. Loving hopes the trend continues as cooler weather and the holidays set in.

"Normally it goes on through January and February, so I think it's going to continue, because people are going to want to burn wood through the holidays even if its not so cold for thanksgiving and christmas"said Daniel Loving Jr owner of Brickhouse Tree Service. This year the average price for a load of wood delivered runs about sixty-five dollars.
