Varies year to year, but it could potentially be single digits.  Bring as much good firewood as you feasibly can.  Cant hurt to be overprepared in that regard.  Beats running home with your tail between your legs.

Bring a chainsaw...depending on temps, wind etc, you may need a cord to a cord and a half.

Spot on.  Also, if a guy can camp near a big slash pile, it goes a long way.  Few pieces of good dry split stuff from home to get things rocking, then you can grab wet snowy logs off a slash pile to maintain the fire

Lots of standing dead on fs ground that will be good burning wood too. Its one of the main factors for our camp location.

If you have good sleeping bags you can button stove up tite with dry wood and get by reloading once overnight with temps in the 50 range.  If you need to keep at 70 open damper and reload  4 times .

Good oak lasts twice as long as pine or alder

We usually go through 1/2-1 cord like others said during elk season in central wa. if your in an area that you can cut wood, bring a saw and find some nice snags to fell, I dropped two nice red fir Snags for this year and short of having to come home to deal with some business stuff I think that should do for the time weíll be in camp.

I use pressed logs at night, they burn for a long time, and put out lots of heat!

I always bring a chainsaw and supplement fires. I bring the N ID energy logs and to me is the way to go. The heat they produce and longevity is unbeatable.

Chain saw is your friend on NF lands. Try to cut dead fall that is off the ground a little. We fed three stoves for three weeks and a camp fire with about two cords.

Press logs as a addition at night.

Try to cut smaller diameter wood than you don't have to split it.  :tup:

My previous experience says, you'll need a standard truck bed load of split wood.
