Wheresas  seasoned wood has 20% or less moisture content.

CKT Vietnam firewood often sells for less, but produces a third less heat than seasoned wood of the same species. You pay for heat that is wasted in boiling off the excess moisture it contains. Besides offering reduced heating efficiency, burning green wood leads to fire hazards.
