Fox Firewood

In the Columbia to Clark Missouri area

I'm Bill and I cut, split, dry, and deliver firewood. I split and stack my wood and let it dry  for about a year so that it burns great. I sell firewood in 16-inch lengths and 12-inch lengths.  I also sell 8-inch lengths for chiminea fireplaces and pizza ovens as well as 4 inch lengths for mini-pizza ovens.  I also sell BBQ chunks in mesh bags for smoking meat.  The wood is delivered in sturdy blue Ikea bags or in bulk.  Check out the options for firewood below and give me a text or call.

Check out my description of central Missouri firewood as well as how to take care of your firewood.


I will not sell wood before it's time.  Firewood has to be split to dry well.  Firewood has to be dried to 20% or less moisture content to burn well.

Unsplit wood will hold the moisture in the wood for years.

Oak and Hickory has to be split about 1 year ago for it to be dry enough to burn well.  The larger the split, the longer it has to dry.

Some will sell wood that is "seasoned."  How long has it been seasoned?  I am splitting wood now to sell in a year.

Dry firewood is the key to not have creasote in your chimney.  Make sure your chimney is clean then burn dry firewood and you will have no problems for a long time.

     Explanation of the different kinds of Wood

Red Oak-A great wood to burn in the backyard and fireplace.  It burns hot with few sparks. Red Oak splits fairly well, except where there are knots  It can be used in the BBQ, and some BBQers like it.  I really can't tell the difference between red and white oak for BBQing.  I have red oak firewood in abundance. 

White Oak-A great wood to burn in the backyard and fireplace.  It burns hot with few sparks.  A little more difficult to split than red oak.  Some people like white oak for the BBQ because it gives a little more heat.  Texas BBQers like white oak or post oak, a species of white oak.  I sell small split, barkless white oak for BBQing.

I sell red and white oak, small and medium split mixed together since they are similar.


Hickory-A great wood to use for the BBQ, pizza oven, wood stove and fireplace.  It is a stringy wood that is difficult to split.  It will burn hot and give a nutty or as some say a bacon smell to smoke. (Hickory smoked bacon) If you are looking for heat, BTUs, hickory is better than oak.  I split Hickory for BBQ wood and pizza oven wood, but it great for the fireplace or fire pit.  It costs a little more than Oak because it is less abundant and is harder to split, but it gives you more heat.

Cherry-I have very little of this wood, it just is not abundant in our area like oak and hickory.  It gives a mild smoke but doesn't burn as hot as oak or hickory.  Could I even say that it has a fruity smoke, it is a fruit tree.  I process this in smaller quantities for those who want to smoke meat.

How to take care of your Firewood

     Most Firewood that is freshly split is about 30%-45% moisture content.  The goal is to get it below 20%. We will never get rid of all the moisture, but it is possible to get firewood in the mid teens.  A way to tell that firewood is dry is to take 2 pieces of firewood and hit them together.  The firewood will sound like a bowling ball hitting the pins.  Wet firewood makes a dull thud.  Oak and Hickory take about 1 year to dry down outside depending on the size of the split.  As I said before, unsplit wood has bark on the outside and holds the moisture in.  Firewood needs heat (air temp and/or the sun) and wind (air circulation) to dry.  Firewood dries in the winter with lower humidity, air circulation and the sun (heat) but it dries faster in the summer.  Of course a kiln speeds up the process, heat and circulation, but most people don't have one so we use the sun and wind to our advantage.

   Stack your firewood above the ground.   If you put your firewood on the dirt it will take the moisture from the ground and never dry.  A cement slab is OK, but a firewood rack is better,  that allows more air circulation.  Storing your wood in the garage is a great place if the wood is already dry.

  Should you cover your firewood?  If it is already dry, it is not necessary, but if you want to, only cover the top.  Rain will shed off the uncovered wood and only the outside gets wet and that will dry quickly.  I have so much wood that I can't cover it all and it all dries.   If I do cover it, I only cover the very top as I want air circulation.  One thing that really slows down the drying process is snow.  Snow sits on the wood and slowly melts onto the wood.  Wood that is wet on the outside for a long time of course can not dry.


Let's talk about knots

Many people want firewood that looks nice.  But the knotty pieces are the ones that burn the hottest and longest.  This is because the wood grain is very tight around the knots.  So when you see a knotty, ugly piece of firewood, think, that's a beautiful burning piece of wood

For those who really want to save money, I have "odds and ends" firewood.  When I split wood, from time to time I get knotty or short or ugly pieces of wood.   I also have sawmill cutoffs  mixed in.  I throw them in a pile because they don't stack well.  These pieces will burn but they are not "pretty" firewood.  (All dry wood burns)  Some are big chunks, some small chunks and various species of wood.    If you are looking for cheap boiler heating wood this is it.   If you are looking for cheap odds and ends, this is it.  If you are looking for what I call "overnighters" there are many in the pile.

(Check out the picture below of the big pile of wood)

Odds and Ends Boiler Wood, the equivalent of 1/3 cord, (really more) tossed in my truck delivered $100  (if you just want medium wood, I can pick those out so you don't get the big pieces)

If you pick up with your truck, tossed in 1/3 of a cord, (really more) $50

If you bring a trailer, I will figure accordingly, but don't worry, you will get the better deal.
