Why Oak Firewood?
Oak firewood is the go-to choice for many fire burners. It’s loved not only for its low emissions and ability to be easily ignited but also for the fact that it burns longer than most. Making it an excellent heat source for your home or for those long nights by the fire.
Oak firewood has a traditional smell, making it great for your indoor fireplace or your outdoor firepit. It also adds an exceptional flavor to your food when you cook with oak wood.
Because oak firewood is also naturally dense, it also makes it more resistant to fungal attacks. Combined with the kiln dried process that we put all of our firewood through, you won’t experience any excess smoke or bad aroma due to mold or pests.
HOW CAN YOU USE OAK FIREWOOD?
Oak firewood, with its deep-rooted history and captivating allure, is a versatile choice. This slow-burning wood is particularly renowned for its impressive density, ensuring a fire that burns long, slow, and hot. We also recommend using kindling to initiate your fires, ensuring a quick and efficient burn.
Oak firewood also shines in both outdoor fire pits and indoor fireplaces. Its primal allure, reminiscent of our ancestors gathering around the fire for warmth and connection, is heightened by the enticing aroma of natural oak wood burning. For those colder nights, oak's density makes it an optimal choice for wood-burning stoves, ensuring a consistently warm and comfortable environment.
Something to Consider Before You Buy Oak Firewood
When searching for good firewood to burn, you will often find seasoned oak firewood. Because of the process of seasoning firewood means leaving it outside for a minimum of eighteen months, seasoned oak firewood tends to have a considerable amount of rot, fungus, mold, and pests.
We do not season our firewood. Instead, we only sell Cutting Edge Kiln Dried premium oak firewood that has been properly dried and hand picked. This guarantees our firewood is free of insects, mold, and excessive moisture which makes it burn cleaner.
If you would like to extend your fire even longer, our oak firewood pairs nicely with our Extended Burn Oak Firewood and our Uncut Rounds. Once your fire is nice and hot, adding these would ensure that your fire lasts all night!

Where Does Oak Firewood Come From?
Oak is a hardwood that comes from the oak tree, which is native to the Northern Hemisphere. Nearly 450 species of oak exist, and around 90 of them are found in North America.
This exceptionally strong wood is known for its appealing light color, prominent grain and impressive lifespan of 200 years. The most common species of oak are Red Oak and White Oak.
Red oak is common in the Eastern United States and Canada and can be recognized by its unique coarse grain pattern. Red oak firewood is similar to that of cherry and is not as hard as white oak. It’s commonly used to make cabinets, flooring, furniture and lumber. Red oak produces 24.6 million BTUs per cord.
White oak is also found through the Eastern United States and Canada. White oak is not as tall as the red oak, reaching only 65 to 85 feet in height. The wood is strong, fine-grained and similar to beech or maple. A cord of white oak produces 26.4 million BTUs.
