The amount of BTUs in a cord of wood vary depending on the the type of wood that the cord is made up of. For example, one cord of Osage Orange wood is around 30.0 BTUs. There are literally hundreds of different types of wood in the world so you really have to be in tune with the type of wood that you have in order to figure out the individual BTUs. Typically, wherever you get the wood from should know the type.
The denser the wood and the dryer the wood the more btus you will get. So from a cord of standard wood you would get from 18,000,000 to 24,000,000 btus. The best wood for burning and the most heat would be hickory, locust and some oaks are high in btus.
