Firewood FAQs

How much wood is a full cord?

A true full cord is stacked 4 feet high x 4 feet wide x 8 feet long -  with 16 inch lengths of wood. Equates to 128 cubic feet. We sell firewood by the fraction of a cord. For example, Our Kiln Dried 1/4 cord tote bags measure to 32 cubic feet of wood - stacked.   

How much wood is a "facecord"?

A facecord is just another term for 1/3 of a cord or 43 cubic feet stacked.   Please check the website for availability of our 1/3 cord tote bags.  

What is the difference between burning hardwood and softwood?

Generally hard wood will burn hotter and for longer periods of time. BTU ratings are traditionally used to compare the amount of energy released by burning a cord of any given species of wood. Pine has a heat rating of approximately 15 BTUs. Douglas Fir is a hotter burning softwood, with 20.5 BTUs. BC Birch has a heat rating of up to 23.5 BTUs. BC Birch is a much denser wood; it burns slower, hotter and longer.

Does the Douglas Fir and Pine spark or crackle?

Yes. Most softwoods like pine, cedar, douglas fir, and spruce will crackle. Birch will not. Birch will generally burn cleaner and, therefore, is recommended for indoor fireplaces. 

How much wood is in a weekender tote bag?

A weekender tote is 16''X16''x3'. It contains approximately 40 pieces of wood. It is the perfect amount of wood for a weekend fire and a great value compared to gas station bags! Don't forget to bring your tote bag back to us. We will refill it and give you a 10$ credit towards your next purchase!

Can I pick up firewood?

Yes. You may self load bulk firewood at our retail location. Alternatively, we can load a pre-measured tote bag into your truck for you. We do not load loose firewood with a loader bucket into your vehicle.

How is firewood delivered? 

We deliver firewood in a pre-measured tote bag with a picker crane. 

Where can you place a tote bag of firewood?

Currently, 1/6 cord, 1/4 cord and 1/3 cord tote bags are available. We are able to place them on the driveway, parking pad or back alley. We cannot place it on city property.
