Letters from the Woodlot

Featured Writer - Martin L. Klein

Martin L. Klein is 52 years old and was raised in Central Illinois. The youngest of 5 children, he was sent to work on two different farms in his teen years, which instilled a good outdoor work ethic and increased his knowledge of the country life. Martin started a firewood business in 1992 after moving to a rural setting with his family. Now with a regular customer base and a thriving business, firewood has provided additional income during the winter months, as, being a self employed painter and carpenter, work slows down during the cold months. An avid camper and outdoorsman, his love for the outdoors and insider knowledge about the firewood business provides insightful articles for Keep-It-Simple-Firewood.com.
