Standard Wood collects its firewood from dead standing trees and seasons it for up to five years to ensure clean, uniform burning. Bundles of Wyoming mountain pine ($3) join premeasured bins of hardwoods—such as dense, long-burning oak, gray barkless pinion, and fragrant cedar, which fills ears with crackles, pops, and head-rattling sub-bass as it burns—in quarter-, half-, and full-cord increments ($15–$50). Each bundle arrives wrapped in heavy-gauge plastic to ensure that fluctuating temperatures and invasive pests don't sabotage timber’s burning power. Standard Wood delivers kindling to doorsteps throughout the Salt Lake Valley (a $25 fee, eligible with this Groupon).
