Firewood can be chopped at wood chopping blocks found in many cities, settlements, farms and camps throughout Skyrim, and can also be found lying about. Firewood can either be sold directly to merchants for 2 or turned in to mill workers and innkeepers, who accept them for 5 a piece. Selling firewood is a good way to earn money early in the game. Firewood is also used to upgrade some weapons at grindstones (i.e. common bows). In the first add-on, Dawnguard, firewood is used to craft arrows, bolts and the crossbow.
Every time the firewood chopping animation is activated, two pieces of firewood are produced.
Followers can be commanded to chop firewood and carry it. A follower can carry firewood beyond their maximum weight capacity if the Dragonborn continues to instruct them to chop the firewood.
