What is a Cord of Firewood?
A cord of firewood measures 128 cubic feet. To achieve this measurement, tightly stack the pieces of firewood all in the same direction, four feet high by four feet deep by eight feet long. 4' x 4' x 8' = 128 Cubic Feet.
What Burns Best -
The best burning wood is seasoned hardwood, led by ash and followed by oak and hardwood maples. Seasoned means the tree has been cut and allowed to dry for a least one year, although it need not be split. The only exception to the seasoning rule is ash, which can usually be used the same season. Avoid pines and cedar which burn hot and can cause a build-up inside the fireplace. While birchwood, with its attractive white bark, is the prettiest wood, it is not among the best burning. The best smelling is oak; the worst, ailanthus, nicknamed the "tree of heaven."
Where to Store Wood -
Keep split firewood in a dry place that gets proper ventilation and preferably, some sun. While it is not a good idea to have a wood pile too close to the house, it's safe and very convenient to keep an immediate supply in an iron ring on the patio, porch or even beside the fireplace. If the wood is well-seasoned, you can cover the pile with plastic but be aware that a plastic cover will slow down the seasoning process. It is also a good idea to keep the wood on two treated two-by-fours so that it is not in direct contact with soil.
