• Where do these hardwoods come from?
They are all grown, harvested, and milled in the USA.

• How 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?
Anywhere you would normally burn pieces of wood: wood stoves, charcoal grills, outdoor fireplaces, open-pit fires, wood-fired boilers, campfires, etc.

• What is the best way to start a Woodchucks fire?

• How do Woodchucks compare to regular firewood (cordwood)?
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 of cordwood.

• Has any formal testing been conducted on Woodchucks?
Yes. Testing on ash content and Btu value was conducted by Colorado State University.

• How much ash will Woodchucks leave behind after burning?
Woodchucks leave behind less than 1% ash.

• What is the Btu (British thermal unit) value of Woodchucks?
Woodchucks emit of 8300 Btu’s per pound.

• 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.
• Because of their low moisture and consistent density, they will not spark and pop like cordwood.
