Firewood can generally be broken down into hardwoods and softwoods. Hardwood is more dense and heavy, while softwood is less dense, lighter, and burns faster. The types of firewood available to you will usually depend on where you live, as all trees are not native to all areas. The top 22 types of firewood are: Apple, Ash, Birch, Cherry, Hawthorne, Maple, Oak, Pine, Sycamore, Walnut, Yew, Black Locust, American Beech, Ironwood, Hickory, American Elm, Tamarack, Aspen, Cottonwood, Spruce, and Western Red Cedar. Wherever you live, there are probably a couple of options available to you, particularly those living in more forested regions. Of course, anything can be delivered.
