FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

What does "Seasoned Firewood" mean?

Seasoning takes place when the moisture content in wood reaches equilibrium with the moisture in the surrounding air.

When wood is stacked outdoors with good air circulation in a spot that's dry, sunny and open for about six months it will be dry enough to support efficient combustion. Seasoned wood has a higher heating value than green wood. In general, because of its moisture content, a cord of green wood will weigh 70 to 100 percent more than seasoned wood.

The time of year and the size of the wood pieces influences the amount of time that wood takes to season. You can help the process by properly stacking and storing your pile of firewood. The best way is to store it outside, under cover and close to the house for easy access. It should be stacked on a supporting base -- such as cement blocks, pallets or wooden planks. This prevents the wood from drawing moisture from the ground, allows air to circulate around it, reduces insect infestation and cuts down on the amount of dirt in accumulates. End braces or stakes can be used to keep the woodpile from collapsing; they can be built to measure accurately a standard cord.

What are the best woods for burning?

In either a wood stove or fireplace, the easiest and best fire is built by using a mixture of both softwoods -- from trees such as pines and firs -- and hardwoods -- oak, eucalyptus, cedar and so on.

Softwoods start burning easily, and the hardwoods provide for long burning and good "coaling" qualities. A bed of ashes underneath the grate produces steady heat and aids in igniting new fuel as it is added. The fire will continue burning if small amounts of wood are added at regular intervals. In fact, more efficient combustion results from burning small loads of wood with sufficient air than from burning large loads with minimal air.

What are the measurements of a cord of wood?

A lot of consumers are confused by these different measurements and end up getting a lot less wood than they were expecting. A full cord, sometimes misspelled chord, is 128 cubic feet of tightly stacked wood. This measurement is derived from the common firewood dimension of a 4'x4'x8' stack.

To measure a stack of wood, get the height, width and depth in feet. Multiply these three numbers together. This will tell you how many cubic feet you have. Since a cord is 128 cubic feet, divide the number of cubic feet in your stack by 128. That will tell you how many cords you have.

Although 4x4x8 is the common dimension for a cord of wood, there are many dimensions that will add up to a cord. Such as 2x4x16 and 1x4x32.

We offer full, 1/2, 1/3, and 1/4 cords for pick up or full, 1/2, and 1/4 cords for delivery.
