The dimensions of a "standard cord" is a stack of wood piled 8 feet long, 4 feet wide and 4 feet high. The actual amount of wood in a cord can vary dramatically depending on how the wood is cut and stacked.

Firewood sold by the "truckload" typically represents only Stacked firewood for sale by the cordabout 1/3 of a cord or even less. Customers who have bought elsewhere in the past are surprised by how much firewood is actually in a Surin Farms properly stacked cord!

Many factors can affect the value you get when buying firewood. The quantity received is, of course, important if one does not like to pay for empty air space. Another factor to consider is the wood itself.

Why Properly Seasoned Hardwood Is Important

Hardwood is defined as wood from seed producing, trees that reproduce from flowers. In Minnesota's climate these trees are mostly broad leaved and deciduous.
Hardwood differentiates from coniferous softwood such as pine. Another notable difference is the hardwood's complex structure and the presence of pores or "vessels".
Interestingly, hardwood is not necessarily harder than softwood. Balsa, for example, is an especially soft "hardwood".
Generally speaking, however, hardwoods are indeed denser than softwoods. This is important for firewood because hardwoods will burn hotter and longer than softwoods.
Firewood can be either seasoned (dry) or unseasoned (green). Dry wood will burn better and produce more heat. Green wood uses much of its energy to evaporate its higher moisture content before the wood will burn. Fully seasoned hardwood can have up to double the heat producing capacity of a green softwood.
Surin Farms sells only properly seasoned hardwoods from our own property. Buying from the Farm, you can be assured of quality, sustainabilty and a completely local source.
