Steven Boivin (CEO) - Timber Ridge FirewoodSteven Boivin (CEO)

I started Timber Ridge Firewood when I was 17 years old. What began as a sister company to my parent’s company Timber Ridge Tree Service has grown beyond what we expected.

I would have never thought that the business would turn into what it is today.

It all started with a problem. My parent’s company had a farm property with years of seasoned logs from their tree business. The government annexed that property, and we had an immediate need to relocate or dispose of those logs.

I decided that I would take a stab at selling them over my summer holidays from high school.

How Timber Ridge Firewood got its start

  1. I purchased a wood splitter for processing and quickly got to work, producing dry firewood to sell. Fast forward a few months, and things had rapidly changed. I had become well versed in firewood industry, the competitive space, and basic marketing to attract clients to my business. My first summer was a resounding success, and it sparked a fire inside of myself to dream big. I quickly sold through my parent’s firewood supply and needed to find a firewood source to continue expanding.
  2. I had discovered the premium firewood market and began networking within industry to source wood from Alberta and British Columbia. One key connection to a firewood provider in Canmore named Mike Jones gave me my start into commercial firewood expansion. Mike introduced me to my first large scale supplier that I was able to get dry firewood from year-round consistently.
