Get the Facts on Firewood Size & Quantity

How Much Do I Need?

Traditionally firewood is purchased and sold by cubic volume. Weights and Measurements Canada recognizes a full (bush) cord (or fractions thereof) as the only sanctioned term for firewood measurement. Full cords of firewood equal 128 cubic ft. of cut and split firewood stacked or 180 cubic ft. of cut and split firewood loose. Generally, a full cord is referred to as 8’ x 4’ x 4’, but not many people stack their wood in cube form.

Delivery or Pick-Up

At The Firewood Factory, you can find quality aged hardwood in 16” and 12” sizes. Select fruit wood is also available for all your barbeque and smoker needs. Pick up is by appointment only. Please call ahead for delivery and pricing.

Full Cord (128 cubic ft. stacked or 180 cubic ft. loose)

With a full cord of firewood, an average household can have approximately 4 to 6 fires per week during the season.

½ Cord (64 cubic ft. stacked or 90 cubic ft. loose)

With a ½ cord of firewood, an average household can have approximately 2 to 3 fires per week during the season.

¼ Cord (32 cubic ft. stacked or 45 cubic ft. loose)

With a ¼ cord of firewood, an average household can have approximately 1 to 2 fires per week during the season.

Burn Time Of Firewood

The approximate data above is only a guide and based off of customer feedback. The approximate burn time used to calculate the data above is 1 to 2 hours per fire in an open fireplace.

The number of fires per full, ½, or ¼ cord measurements is impossible to predict accurately because there are too many variables including, but not limited to:

  • Square ft. of space to be heated
  • Preferred indoor temperature
  • Outdoor temperature
  • Wind conditions
  • Number of wood pieces burned during one fire
  • Size of the pieces used
  • Where burned (fireplace or wood stove)
  • Efficiency of burning appliance
