Hardwoods that have been dried to a moisture content of less than 20 percent work well. They light easily and continue to burn all the way through with a hot steady flame. Wood that is above 25% typically will be difficult to light and tend to steam and smoke and be hard to keep burning. Soft woods often contain too much resin that can be a maintenance problem for chimneys and burn too fast. Oak is the predominant hardwood for firewood due to good burning qualities, great aroma and abundance. Hickory, Cherry, Pecan and other hardwoods work well but are usually a little more expensive. Southern Fuelwood uses 95% Oak and a 5% mixture of Hickory, Cherry and other hardwoods that have been kiln dried to 15% or less moisture content in its firewood product.

Southern Fuelwood is the manufacturer of all of the quality wood products that we sell. We are not a reseller of someone else’s products and we do not produce our products from diseased wood from Tree Surgeons. We are not in that business as some of our firewood competitors are and you can be assured that all Southern Fuelwood products are from carefully selected healthy trees. We have built a solid reputation on our ability to deliver to our customers the right cut, split, moisture content, packaging and species of heat treated wood that provides the best value and results for their business. We offer competitive prices, quick service and dependability you can count on. Let Florida’s original “Woodman” provide you with the best possible products and service for your business.
