I run ash and hackberry in my barrel stove for shop heat. They burn fairly similar I think the hackberry takes longer to season. This reminds me I need to dump a bunch of ashes before I fire it up next.

I made a couple at the farm this week. My wife likes a fire all day but she's not the one splitting wood.

Mostly chestnut, but some beech and birch mixed in.

Broad leaf maple is up to bat, oak, hickory and cherry on deck. Boat load of pine from ice storm last fall.

Trying to find someone to help with chimney work.
I'm thinking those people are extinct.

We burn wood here. I usually have mostly red oak, with soft (red) maple and birch thrown in. We, like most of the Great Lakes area, have a BUNCH of ash in our area that needs cutting. We are far enough north in Michigan that we have no hickory, but family downstate burn it on a regular basis. I have elm on the place that I will cut when it croaks, but only if it isn't too big.....I hate splitting elm with a maul.

Ash everywhere here, dead from the borers. The farmer across the road has 40 plus acres of ash bottom and every tree is dead on it. Add to that the wood from the tornado that ripped through the county a year ago, and we have more wood than we know what to do with right now.

We burn in a fireplace, not a wood stove, and mostly just for ambiance, not heat, though it is nice and warm to sit by it.. We've had a few fires already. My wood is whatever I can scavenge for free, so for now it's cottonwood from a tree at church and some unknown tree from the neighbor's yard, plus a small amount of oak and ash that I grabbed from the curb from some storm damage.

I lit the outdoor burner on Saturday.
It was 32 here yesterday.
Burn lots of poplar, maple, oak and whatever i can get my hands on.
Free is the best.

The flooding here makes it rough to get to much of my wood supply but I'm picking up mostly ash and elm here.


Was born in a Big City Will die in the Country OK with that!

I burn wood in my cabin. Electric heat for a back up. Have burned wood for probably the last 40 or so years. Had a couple wood tank heaters for my livestock before we went to all waterers. Used to throw a barrel in the pond or creek just to keep a hole open for the cows when I used to pasture stalks in the winter. Usually set up a wall tent down in one of the family creek bottoms for the winter. Have a wood stove in there. And we burn wood and old oil in a stove at the family farm shop. Usually burn oak, mulberry, locust, and ash. Some hackberry or what ever else we cut down around the fields and pasture fences. Wood is the one fuel that warms U several times. Cutting, loadind\g, splitting, stacking, carry to the stove, Then the last time, actually heating your place you hang your hat!!

Not burning but soon. Hard Maple and hickory this year. Just finished getting 17 face cord in the cellar. 12 cord behind the sugar house. Up here a face cord is the length of an individual piece then a stack 4 ft hi and 8 ft long. Where I grew up that would be 1/3 of a standard cord.

Been burning wood for as long as I can remember.
Have a big pile of ash,oak and junk wood for the boiler. BUT hard to beat $ 1.25 propane. Buy the time I add the cost up on wood's Free heat the wood can wait until deep winter -10 to -30 below then it pays.
I will only have a fire in late December though February.
