Douglas Fir is a softwood that produces a moderate amount of heat and is easy to light. Douglas Fir is one of the better softwoods for firewood and is even better than some hardwoods as far as total heat content.
Douglas fir that is straight grained and knot free splits nicely into kindling size pieces. It is often used for kindling but being denser than most other softwoods doesn’t ignite as easily so is not the best choice compared to many other softwoods.
Douglas Fir is not a true fir but is in a genus of it’s own. Douglas Fir ranges from central British Columbia to central California along the Pacific Coast and also in the Rocky Mountains.
