Why Hickory Firewood?
Hickory is the most premium and the most popular species of firewood we offer. This heavy and dense hardwood is easy to light and is considered ideal for burning and cooking.
Not only does hickey firewood burn hotter, brighter, and longer than other species of wood, but it also produces exceptionally low smoke emissions. This makes hickory firewood safe to enjoy indoors and outdoors.
Fire enthusiasts love using hickory in their fireplace or firepit because of its pleasant aroma and inviting crackle. Both of which are guaranteed to create an exceptional fireside experience.
Something to Consider Before You Buy Hickory Firewood
While hickory firewood might be easier to find than some other species like cherry firewood, finding high-quality firewood can be a bit of a challenge. Most hickory firewood that has been “seasoned” ends up with a considerable amount of rot, mold, fungus, and pests due to the process of leaving wood outside to dry for a minimum of twelve months. In fact, Hickory is one of the fastest rotting woods, when left outside.
At Cutting Edge Firewood, we only sell Cutting Edge Kiln Dried Hickory Firewood that is properly dried leaving it free of insects, mold, and excess moisture. This is why our hickory firewood lights easier and burns cleaner.
To make your fire last even longer, our hickory firewood pairs exceptionally well with our Extended Burn Hickory and Uncut Rounds. Just make sure your fire is burning hot enough before you add any of our extended burn products.

Where Does Hickory Firewood Come From?
Hickory trees are large trees with plenty of foliage that creates a canopy effect. These trees belong to the walnut family and are of the Carya genus.
There are eighteen species of hickory trees but only twelve of them are actually native to North America. The most common are shagbark hickory and shellbark hickory.
You can easily identify hickory by the rough textured bark with a mix of shallow and deep ridges. The bark is generally gray but darkens as the tree matures.
