At Deeke’s, we specialize in seasoned hardwoods.
Firewood is classified into two different categories—hardwoods and softwoods. Hardwoods are the superior type of firewood. They come from leaf-shedding trees that lose their leaves in the fall, while softwoods keep their leaves year-round. Hardwoods also tend to be denser than softwoods because they are slower growing.
- Hardwood burns longer and gives off more heat than softwoods, which means you have to add fewer logs to keep a fire going and still get constant heat output.
- Seasoned firewood will ignite and burn quickly because it’s dry. Fresh wood is hard to start and light due to the wood’s moisture from tree sap and water.
- Safety is one of the biggest reasons to choose hardwood over softwood. Hardwood fires burn cleaner, produce less smoke, and create fewer sparks than softwoods.
