Cherry Firewood vs. Other Woods

When it comes to firewood choices, Cherry Firewood stands out for its distinct attributes. Unlike dense apple and hickory, Cherry wood offers a milder and lower burn, ideal for spring to early fall, capturing the essence of warmth without overwhelming heat. The subtle sweet aroma of Cherry is incomparable, filling the air with a delightful fragrance, transcending the typical firewood experience. 

Compared to oak, Cherry produces a gentler and more romantic red glow, transforming spaces into havens of intimate warmth and connectivity. The lower BTU ensures that heat is manageable, keeping creosote build-up to a minimum, ensuring a safer and cleaner burn. This popular firewood is a favorite among homeowners for its perfect balance of aroma, beauty, and practicality.

Something to Consider Before You Buy Cherry Firewood

Finding high-quality wild cherry firewood can be a bit challenging. Most seasoned cherry firewood has considerable rot, mold, fungus, and pests due to the process of leaving the wood outside for a minimum of twelve months.

At Cutting Edge Firewood, we only sell Cutting Edge Kiln Dried Wild Cherry Firewood that is free of insects, mold, and excess moisture, making sure your fire lights easily and burns cleaner. 

If you want a fire that burns hotter and longer, cherry might not be the best choice for you. Because it is not as dense, cherry firewood does not burn as dense as other species such as hickory firewood and oak firewood. Also, it does not mix well with our Extended Burn HickoryExtended Burn Oak, or our Uncut Rounds, as it doesn’t burn hot enough to ignite larger pieces of wood.

Where Does Cherry Firewood Come From?

Cherry trees, or Prunus avium, belong to the Rose family and are native to areas of Europe, North Africa, and Asia Minor. 

They are grown around the world in regions with cold and warm weather and are the most widely planted ornamental tree in the United States. They are best known for their beautiful spring blossoms.

You can identify cherry trees from their bark. New branches and young trees have smooth brown or gray bark that looks like satin, and their surface is noticeably marked with horizontal openings known as lenticels.

How Do You Properly Store Cherry Firewood?

Storing Cherry Firewood requires thoughtful attention to ensure the wood maintains its exceptional quality. To optimize the longevity of your Cherry Firewood, place it elevated off the ground, ensuring ample space for ventilation between logs.

Shield your Cherry wood with a robust canvas cover, further protecting it from outdoor elements while maintaining its quality and vibrant color. Our expertly cut and uniform wood stacks easily, ensuring consistent ventilation throughout, safeguarding the wood’s optimal condition.
