Where do these hardwoods come from?
They are all
grown, harvested, and milled in the USA.
are Woodchucks made?
Woodchucks are made in a press that forces
wood particles through a heated die. The heating and subsequent cooling causes the wood to hold the form created by the die.
Where can I burn Woodchucks?

How do Woodchucks compare to regular firewood
This depends a lot on the cordwood since it varies
in species, dirt and bark content, and moisture content, but in general Woodchucks will contain 1.5x to 2x the heat value
Has any formal testing been conducted
Yes. Testing on ash content and Btu value was
conducted by Colorado State University.
ash will Woodchucks leave behind after burning?
behind less than 1% ash.
What is the Btu (British
thermal unit) value of Woodchucks?
Woodchucks emit of 8300 Btus
What is the moisture content of Woodchucks?
Very low, between 6-8%.
Why is low moisture content important?
Because if moisture content is higher, more energy is used to dry the wood, and less is converted into heat.
Do Woodchucks contain any dirt or bark?
No. Woodchucks are 100% hardwood.
Why is the absence of dirt or bark important?
Because when energy is used to burn dirt and bark, less is available for heat.
What are other advantages of using Woodchucks?
Woodchucks are compact, taking up less room than cordwood.
Woodchucks have low emissions
and very low creosote.
They burn hot and very evenly.
