How we create the best and cleanest burning wood for cooking and fires

TruBurn has been splitting, drying, and kiln-crisping™ our wood for over 25 years. What started as a side project named Red Oak Firewood has turned into a business that ships firewood commercially all over the southeast and has delivered tens of thousands of loads to our local residential customers in the Atlanta metro market.

We start each spring with high-quality hardwoods we purchase through local suppliers. We love the local guys because they pick out the best logs and drop them on our deck. We take these logs and run them through our firewood processor. This is a huge machine that measures, cuts, and spits wood at the same time. This wood is sent up a conveyor belt into a dump truck.
After the split wood is loaded into a dump truck, the magic  begins to happen, and it all starts with time. We dump this wood onto our seasoning deck, where the wood will sit and dry. This natural seasoning reduces the moisture to between 20-10%, the optimal moisture content for cooking and firewood.
After the wood has done its time on our drying deck, it’s separated between commercial and residential loads. Each piece is hand-picked to ensure the highest quality again. If a piece doesn’t make the cut, it becomes the fuel source for our kiln-cripsing™ process. Commercial loads are put into our customer rolling racks to make delivery and usage more manageable for the customer. The residential loads are hand loaded into our drying shed, where they spend a little extra time to hit the perfect moisture content before being loaded into our custom delivery trucks.
Once you place your order, we load our delivery trucks for residential or commercial and deliver to you free of charge.

What is a cord of wood

Firewood is measured in cords. So, what is a cord of firewood? A full cord, a face cord, and a rick are all common terminology used in measuring quantities of firewood. 

A cord is 128 cubic feet of wood. This measures approximately 4′ high x 8′ long x 4′ deep. Some places that sell firewood might advertise a cord of wood while selling you only a fraction of a cord.

Like a full cord of firewood, a face cord measures 4′ high x 8′ long, but face cords can vary in how deep they measure. Face cords often measure 4′ high x 8′ long x 16″ deep. Yes, that’s 16 inches, not 48 inches deep, like a true cord of firewood. This means that your typical face cord contains only one-third the amount of wood as a full cord. If you find a face cord that measures 4′ high x 8′ long x 24″ deep, you’re getting a half-cord of wood. 
One way to tell if you’re looking at a full cord of wood is to count how many rows of wood are stacked together. Firewood logs are often cut 16″ long, so a stack of firewood that contains three rows of 16″ logs (16″ x 3 = 48″, or 4′) is likely to be a full cord. As long as the stack still measures 4′ high x 8′ long, that is.
Additionally, some sellers might refer to a rick of wood. Don’t be alarmed by the different terminology. Some people use the term to refer to a face cord of wood; others use it to describe the amount of wood that can load into a pickup.
The use of different names isn’t done maliciously. Sometimes, it’s just a matter of confusion. To avoid confusion, be sure to measure before you buy.
