Density of Common Wood Species
  • The chart below shows the air dried density of common wood species - this is the number given in the first column after the wood name.

    This indicates the approx weight of one cubic foot of the wood when air-dried (about 20% moisture).

    For the purposes of the
    Burn Time Calculator on this site, we have used the following densities for our calculations:
    25 - Soft
    30 - Medium
    38 - Hard
    44 - Extra Hard
