Oak wood has a density of about 0.75 g/cm3, which means it has great strength and hardness. Since Oak is such a densely packed hardwood tree it naturally has the property to burn for a long time. The heat production of oak firewood is between 24 - 28 Million BTU's per cord (depending on the species), and since it takes so long to totally burn, the firebox doesn't need to be filled as frequently. This means that less effort is needed once the fire is going well to maintain the fire. Oak will burn 3-5 times longer than pine of the same size.
Another Oak firewood quality is that it is very resistant to insect and fungal attack because of its high tannin content making it one of the cleanest burning woods available.
BTUs/Cord (millions) = 24 - 28 depending on the species
