Every winter we look forward to the pleasures of warming our hands and feet by a blazing fire, mesmerized by the dancing flames.
When buying firewood two factors will determine just how hot your fire is—seasoning and the kind of wood.
Wood is made up of air and cellulose (wood fiber). The more air space that wood has, the less there is to burn. Buying wood with the heaviest/densest per unit volume will keep you toasty.
Osage orange, hickory, black locust, all of the oaks, sugar maple and ash produce hot fires; plus they are easy to split.
