Hardwood versus Softwood: Hardwood is the best for burning and will put out the most BTUs of heat per rick, but is harder to ignite. Most people suggest that you start a fire with a softwood or a softwood kindling and then add your hardwood. We suggest that you never use strictly softwood alone but only as a fire starter. Below is a list of hardwoods we have for sale and a list of hardwoods that have extremely high BTUs.
