In our world, a good deal up front doesn’t mean a good deal in the long run. Softwood trees grow faster than hardwood trees, meaning their firewood is notoriously cheaper. Yes, you’ll pay less per cord, but you’ll need to use twice as many logs for the same energy. Burn one fire, and the difference is clear. Hardwood makes for a cleaner, hotter burn.
- Burns longer and cleaner
- Produces less smoke
- Gives off more heat
- Ignites quickly because it’s dry
- Creates fewer sparks
