Looking for the best firewood available? Then you have found it!
Unlike green or “seasoned” firewood, Cutting Edge Kiln Dried Firewood has been dried in a high temperature oven. This not only removes moisture that normally makes firewood hard to light, but it also kills fungus and pests in the wood – making it cleaner and last longer than any other firewood available. Cutting Edge Firewood has the most rigorous drying process in the industry, we kiln dry our wood for 48 hours at 250 degrees, 12 times longer than the USDA standard.
We also make it easier than ever before to order and receive firewood. We offer our a complimentary white glove delivery service inside our delivery artisan network and ship firewood throughout the continental USA.
The Cutting Edge Firewood Rack (Patent Protected) is 2′ wide and 4′ tall with enough wood for 15-25 fires. If you’re a local customer, then we’re happy to loan you our metal rack. We can also remove the wood from our packaging and stack it into your firewood rack. If you order a rack for shipping, we’ll send it inside a wooden rack that is easy to move and manage.

Generations of homeowners have relied on firewood to cook food and warm the home. Today, backyard bonfires and cozy fireplaces are the ideal ways to spend a weekend with loved ones — but not all firewood is created equally. The right firewood can transform an ordinary fire into an extraordinary experience, while burning low-quality wood can have unpleasant or hazardous side effects.

Our wood is simple to ignite and provides a clean burn. We make it easier than ever before to order and receive firewood, with various options for you to choose from for a personalized experience that fits your lifestyle.

For the best fires, you need the best firewood. At Cutting Edge Firewood, we strive to provide residents throughout Atlanta with a premier firewood experience unlike any they’ve ever had. We do this by kiln drying our wood and providing you with premier-quality firewood. But not all wood is the same. We offer our customers various species to choose from, and each has distinctive characteristics.
No two kinds of wood are the same. Here are some notable qualities you’ll discover about our three most popular kiln dried firewood types:
From the outside, many types of firewood can look similar to one another. They might share the same bark coloring and length, or even come from the same tree — but unless they were chosen, cut, and kiln dried by Cutting Edge Firewood experts, you won’t experience the same high-quality burn. That’s why it’s essential to source your firewood from professionals who know what it takes to produce the best caliber of wood for home use.
Luckily, it’s fairly easy to spot the most notable traits of excellent firewood, which can help you pick the best kind for your specific application. You can determine the burn quality of a piece of firewood by looking for the following properties and characteristics:
Of the 900,000 new homes built in 2019, 310,000 of them had at least one fireplace. When you pair this figure with the rising popularity of outdoor fireplaces and fire pits, it’s clear that the need for firewood continues to grow — and why shouldn’t it? Nearly 2% of people in the U.S. rely on firewood as their primary source of fuel. Firewood is multifunctional, providing both light and heat without the need for electricity or extension cords.
Fireplaces, wood stoves, and backyard fire rings are natural gathering spots for the home or yard, adding visual interest and increasing the property’s value. Plus, wood is a natural and renewable resource, making it an eco-friendly heating or cooking method that lets you save money on your utility bill.
Other popular trends include weddings and private dining events that feature roaring fires, either for their visual appeal or recreational use. When burning firewood for home entertainment, your wood’s quality can greatly impact the atmosphere of the gathering. Specific types of wood evoke different smells and various flame intensities. High-quality wood will allow you to enjoy these qualities without dealing with a lot of smoke or ash residue.
When you source your firewood elsewhere, such as from a department store, you have to consider how to get it to your home. Then, you must set aside time in your schedule to carefully haul, load, and stack it. On top of this time-consuming work, you risk investing in dirty, diseased, or infested wood, which will put a damper on your gatherings. While other suppliers focus on producing as much wood as possible for minimal costs, Cutting Edge Firewood never cuts corners.
While our high-temperature kiln removes moisture from your firewood, it also eliminates any chances for fungus, mildew, and pests to infiltrate your wood — all while cleaning the bark. This drying process results in a clean, even round of wood that will fill your home with a pleasing aroma and comfortable warmth.
At Cutting Edge Firewood, we offer more than firewood — we strive to provide a memorable experience. We know some of life’s best memories are made in the warmth of a fire’s glow, and we want the ordering and shipment process to be as simple and stress-free as possible. That’s why we let you choose the type, size, and quantity of your wood, in addition to opting for luxury white glove delivery services.
Here is what you can expect when you partner with Cutting Edge Firewood:
If you burn wood regularly, we offer weekly, biweekly, and monthly firewood subscriptions. Subscriptions require a three-month commitment and make it easier than ever to keep your home stocked for the season. Planning a special event? Consider adding on our fire butler service, so you can enjoy your gathering while we start and manage your fire throughout the evening.
If you have a large fireplace or fire pit, you might need larger pieces of firewood to ensure an extended, even burn. Cutting Edge Firewood has specialty sized shipments that you can either use on their own or pair with our standard firewood for optimal burn conditions. Our split specialty size wood promises an extended burn time and is three to four times thicker than standard cuts. Specialty sizing is available for all types of wood, including cherry, oak, and hickory.

Though you’ll find hickory trees all across the U.S., they are most common in the hills and forests of Central and Eastern regions of the country. The exact shade and texture of the bark varies between different types of hickory, but the color is most often some degree of ashy gray — sometimes with a shaggy appearance.
Hickory firewood provides you with the distinctive qualities everyone loves about a great fire. It is a customer favorite because of its:
With more than 90 types of oak trees in North America, oak firewood is among the most abundant. At Cutting Edge Firewood, we source our oak firewood from red and white trees that grow in lush, Southern forests. The color of oak bark varies, depending on the type of tree in question, but is often a lighter shade of brown or gray.
For those who don’t have a lot of experience with firewood — or, as we call them, “casual burners” — oak is a great starter wood to begin your adventure in premium firewoods because it offers:
If you’re seeking a unique burning experience to impress your friends, create a one-of-a-kind atmosphere, or add something special to your next event, cherry firewood is just what you need. Cherry firewood is easily recognizable, thanks to its bold, warm color and straight grains, as well as its:
Have a question about the best way to use or store your firewood? Our firewood experts are here to help. Below you’ll find the answers to some of the questions we hear most frequently about firewood. To learn more — or ask a question you don’t see listed here — feel free to reach out to us for more information.
Yes. Several factors can cause firewood to go bad or lose its effectiveness, including:
The best way to avoid bad firewood is to purchase a high-quality product from Cutting Edge Firewood and follow all recommended storage practices.
All Cutting Edge Firewood is free of disease, mold, fungus, and bugs, and has been thoroughly kiln dried for maximum effectiveness. However, using improper storage methods or storing our firewood with wood from other distributors may lead to wood damage. A good piece of firewood is sturdy and clean without visible damage or missing bark. The wood should be firm to the touch and free of discoloration.
A few indicators that your firewood has gone bad include:
The answer to this question varies, depending on your specific woodburning goals. For example, our cherry firewood produces the least amount of heat and burn time, but the unique aroma makes it the perfect choice for a special event or gathering.
Hickory firewood burns longer than oak and is a popular choice for indoor fireplaces, while many prefer oak when burning outdoors. You can also choose extended burn firewood for an even longer burn, which is perfect for large fire pits and fireplaces or events requiring a strong flame throughout the night.
Many kinds of wood are suitable for general burning and home heating, as well as cooking and smoking foods, including oak, hickory, and cherry. Other woods — like maple and apple — are great for culinary purposes, but less effective for general use. The wood’s cut and size are also important to note.
Wood burning applications call for logs, split wood, and uncut rounds, while wood for cooking is most beneficial when cut down to small splits or wood chunks. Always choose the correct size firewood, splits, or wood chunks to fit your fireplace, wood stove, fire pit, or grill. For the best results, do not burn firewood outside of its recommended use.
Building a fire is easy if you have the right supplies. Here’s what you need to do:
All Cutting Edge Firewood is easy to light, thanks to our special kiln drying process. You can usually light your fire with a single match! To begin, choose a long match — like our official cigar matches — and strike it to light your excelsior fire starter. Add pieces of kindling to feed the flame. To make things even easier, add a fire starter package to your next Cutting Edge Firewood shipment. Each kit includes everything you need to start a fire in minutes, including the fire starter, kindling, and matches.
To manage your fire, you’ll need to stoke it regularly as needed. Add more firewood as it burns. One your fire is lit — especially if outdoors — do not leave it unattended. Remember to extinguish it thoroughly before leaving.
Our Delivery Artisans will gladly unload and stack your firewood in any place of your choosing. For the longevity of your firewood, make sure you store it somewhere that is:
When you choose high-quality indoor fireplace wood from Cutting Edge Firewood, your shipment will be more than functional — our wood also looks great when displayed in your home. If you’re stacking your wood indoors, similar storage rules apply as when you store firewood outdoors. Opt for a ventilated storage area near your fireplace or wood stove for optimal comfort and convenience. Do not store wood in any areas of the home that are exceptionally moist or humid, such as directly under an air conditioner.
Most firewood suppliers follow the cord measurement standard, which refers to a stacked pile of wood that equals about 4-by-8 feet, with each individual piece being about 4 feet long. We wanted to do more than that by creating a uniform product that burns evenly and eliminates any confusion among retailers.
That’s why we sell all of our firewood via box and rack shipments, with specific dimensions listed online, depending on the type and size of wood you choose. By operating this way, we make it easier for you to know exactly what to expect when your firewood shipment arrives — high-quality, durable wood that burns cleanly and evenly every time.
