Wood For Winter

Fresh off one of the coldest winters ever, the early bird is the one who is ready for the next winter. This is actually, the best time to purchase firewood for next fall/ winter. I took delivery (and stacked) two cord of mixed wood types a few weeks ago. We have a couple videos on our website about firewood. If you purchase wood, buy now for the cheapest prices (green wood) and allow it to dry in the summer heat for next  winter.

Not all trees are created alike. Here is a quick guide to gallons of fuel/ oil per cord air-died wood:

Hickory          –  177 gallons
White Oak     –  170
Sugar Maple  – 155
Red Oak        – 155
Beech            – 149
Yellow Birch  – 149
White Ash      – 149
Red Maple     – 136
White Birch    – 130
Elm                – 126
Gray Birch     – 125
Poplar            – 100

Firewood is sold by the cubic foot or loose cord.  So, when buying firewood, ask about the mix of wood types to make sure you will get the best heat for your buck.
