One common question that we often answer is ‘what is the difference between hardwood and softwood?‘
Basically it comes down to this… If when a trees loses it’s leaves, they have some sort of covering (be it in the form of a shell or fruit), then the wood of that tree will be classified as hardwood. However, if the seeds are simply left to the elements when they fall, then the wood is termed softwood.
Generally, hardwood comes from a deciduous tree which loses its leaves annually and softwood comes from a conifer, or evergreen. Hardwoods tend to grow slower, and so are usually denser.
So why use seasoned hardwood logs on my fire?
Heat, in a word. To give off the maximum amount of heat, you want your fire to burn as hot as possible. Although they take longer to season, hardwood logs, being very dense burn hotter and longer.
