White Cedar is the next best thing to a resin soaked pine knot for starting wood fires and makes for a great natural kindling source.

A face cord refers to a stack of cut and split firewood 4' high by 8' long by the length of the firewood, usually 16”, 20” or 24”. In theory, a standard cord should yield three 16” face cords or a volume of 128 cu.
