Is it better to burn hard or soft wood?

 In

Another thought concerning getting what you pay for is that although firewood is usually sold by volume, heat production is dependent on weight.

Pound for pound, all wood has approximately the same BTU content, but a cord of seasoned hardwood weighs about twice as much as the same volume of softwood, and consequently contains almost twice as much potential heat.

If the wood you are buying is not all hardwood, consider offering a little less in payment.
