What kind of tree is this and is it a good wood to burn?

Many thanks in advance!

 

PS: if anybody wants these logs for free then just let me know. I can even deliver if it's not too far out of the way.

box elder can be lovely stuff if it has nice colour in the heart. do not just chuck it away.

 

a mob of woodturners will be all over you if it has a nice colour to it and it gets chucked on the tip site.

 

try adding it to a few facebook groups. presuming it has the lovely colouring in the heart then they will love it.

I'm very near Streatham ( or st reatham) in SE19 and can take the logs but not the chip/brash.  I'll pm my address and photo of the house so you can see the access, which is fine.

 

What's box elder like to split?  I hand split with x27, Stihl pro 8lb cleave hammer.... Or noodle with 365 x-torque if I have to.

Custom knife makers use it for handles too. It's definitely saleable.
