firewood for larger amounts is measured in favn which is 4m long x 1m high x 0.6m deep. for smaller amounts you buy bags of various sizes, most commonly 40/60/80L or large bags of 1m3 or 1.5m3 for non-stacked firewood.

I just picture you sitting at a table with 10 reference books and a laptop in front of you calculating this like
Let calories in 1 kilogram birch=x
Let days til Dec 21=y
Let slope of average decline in degrees per day=m
Let volume of house=v
Let desired temperature=d
Let insulation efficiency=e

Realize that every one of those variables has a huge margin of error then just get frustrated and be like yeah 600liters should do it. How much math did you actually do out of curiosity? Like did you nerd out on it?


We used hardwood as a primary heat source for common areas in a 1700sq ft house last winter. It definitely went a lot faster than expected. I think we went through approximately 1.5 cords of nice seasoned hardwood and that was supplemented with electric heat. Guess that's what we get for renting a big beach house in the winter.

i was burning 2 30L bags in about 7-10 days so i assumed 60L/week is approx ok. 10 weeks x 60L = 600L

Trying to wrap my head around a "bag" of firewood. Ours usually comes in a truck. :lol:

The tree removal/firewood racket is lucrative, make money on both ends.

mothernature 10-05-2017 01:41 AM

I broke 3 bones in my hand cutting firewood. Actually, loading it.

I had an especially heavy log and I couldn't throw it, so I was putting it in the truck bed, when punk dude was tossing logs without looking. My hand was between the log I was holding and the log he threw. Punk dude says, you got insurance?

It took us 45 minutes to get to the hospital. With trumpcare, that hospital will close and it will take 2 hours to get to a hospital.

I had my revenge because the ex wrecked punk dude's car (drunk). You got insurance?

i used to work for a small company (there was 3 of us) doing lawn care/landscaping and tree removal in canada. i couldn't believe how much people would pay to remove a tree, it was pretty ridiculous

for all the things that are expensive in norway, firewood is absolutely not one of them

kitch 10-05-2017 05:54 AM

Yeah it runs about 150-275/cord here so your pile would be like $25-50, but that's if you buy a full cord. Gas stations sell like 5 pieces of wood for $7 in shrink wrap :/

mothernature 10-05-2017 02:46 PM

A true cord is 4'x4'x8'. Noone wants 4' long logs, so around here they call a stack of firewood that's 4'x2'x8' a rick, which is wrong, but hey, this is Kentucky. 2 ricks = a cord, which is also wrong.

A rick sells for about 60 bucks, plus delivery. Stacking would be extra. (Ya know, making a rick out of a pile of logs).

Birch logs would be free, because they are crap as firewood.

This has been an enlightening talk about faggots, I learned a lot.

Captain Cannabis 10-05-2017 03:04 PM

birch is my favourite firewood as long as its dried. i think its from my childhood memories, but also it has the highest price of all the types you can get here.

i dont really understand any of the measurements/amounts any of us are talking about but i think that the price is approx the same, which is funny in a place where most things cost 2-10x as much as other places

Jonas 10-05-2017 03:10 PM

The wood panels I paint on are birch. (for whatever it's worth)

Also, this is relevant:

Firewood is a good hustle in these parts. Lots of dudes just rolling around with a truck loaded up ready to haggle on their loads.

Cord wood is usually cut to 16 inches here so 3 layers deep, 4 feet tall, 8 feet long.
