A lot of people get very fussy about the type of wood but to be honest so long as its dry IT ALL BURNS. Horse cestnut does spit badly but on a stove it dont matter. I burn a mixture of all the wood that comes back to the yard and thats what my customers get, no complaints yet and lots of repeat orders.

As an experiment I ran my rayburn on pure leylandii for a few days, it worked fine, stayed in all night no probs. I think a mixture is best though especially if you can recognise the species, then you can decide what sort of fire you want when re-fuelling, bright, slow etc.
