How Much Wood Do I Need?
A cord of firewood has legal measurements in Minnesota. Most people are familiar with the measurement of 4ft x 4ft x 8ft, or 128 cu ft. While this is true, when firewood is delivered cut and split a cord of firewood is equal to 175 cu ft to allow for all of the spacing between pieces.
The photo above shows the delivery of a full cord of wood.
The volume of a face cord therefore is typically 1/3 of the volume of a full cord even though it is 8 feet (244 cm) long and 4 feet (122 cm) high with 16 inch long pieces when stacked.
The above photo shows a face cord delivery. A face cord typically fills the bed of a standard 6 foot truck box.
Bundles are red oak, maple, birch, or kindling and measure approximately one cubic foot. Bundles are great for camping, cooking, or the occasional fire indoors or out.

Where Do You Source Your Wood From?
We at Duluth Firewood aim to support local businesses whenever possible. In that spirit, we source our logs from local logging companies and from some of our properties located in northern Minnesota.
