Most northeastern firewood derives of mixed hardwoods, as hardwoods (although denser) provide a longer and stronger burn than softwoods.
Common types of northeastern firewood are Ash, Beech, Birch, Hickory, Maple and Oak.
Newly cut firewood contains a water moisture content of 66% to 80% depending on the type of wood, which prevents it from burning correctly, if it burns at all.
Burning newly cut firewood generates a great deal of toxic smoke and highly induces creosote buildup in chimneys, thus it is recommended that firewood be seasoned a minimum of 6 months prior to burning, retaining a moisture content of 20% or less.
