Chaloux Brothers Firewood


I’m just about finished with a multi-month project photographing the Chaloux Brothers Firewood operation in Williamstown, VT. Meet Roger and Hector Chaloux, among the nicest and most hard-working guys around. And meet lots of firewood, 700 or more cords a year, to add up to something more than 30,000 cords over their 39 years in business. They run log-length wood through their processor, which cuts it to length, splits it and sends it up a conveyor belt and into a dump truck for aging or immediate delivery depending on whether a customer wants green or dry wood. Top, Hector’s silhouette as he operates the wood processor. Below, Roger, and Hector and some of the steps along the way to making firewood. Some of the photos will be in the fall issue of Northern Woodlands magazine. Click here for a full gallery.
