As a general practice, if you are using firewood in your fireplace once or twice a week from October to February, you’ll need 1 Cubic Metre. If you burn 3-4 times a week, you’ll need 2 Cubic Metres to last you those months. To calculate the volume of firewood required, enter the dimensions of the stack you wish to fill. Our wood is cut in 16 inch lengths.
Why We Sell by the Cubic Metre
We follow Measurement Canada's Recommendation and sell by the Cubic Metre instead of the "cord".
Measurement Canada recommends that the use of the cord as a unit of measurement be discontinued, as it is largely misunderstood and often misused by people selling firewood. For example, some sellers use illegal terms such as "face cord", "stove cord", "apartment cord", "furnace cord" and "short cord" to refer to a quantity smaller than 128 cubic feet when selling bulk firewood. These and other similarly worded terms frequently lead to confusion about the actual quantity of firewood being sold.
To avoid any confusion about the amount of firewood purchased or sold, Measurement Canada recommends the use of the stacked cubic metre when purchasing and selling bulk firewood.
