what is your favourite firewood??

Recommended Posts

yew very well seasoned is the hottest wood i have burnt but what a shame to burn it! holly also and hornbeam are great but hard to get hold of they also used to make a stove in my old house glow white!!,beech is my all round favourite gives good heat and stays burning for a long time,ash is over rated imo burns to quick!

Birch,split in as long lengths as possible,good instant heat,and I've got lots of it!

Green Holly is great for later on,and keeping the stove in overnight,woofs up a treat in the morning

I like to use birch for kindling to get the fire going then its ash all the way. Loads of heat and splits easily. Oak and beech come a close second.

 

Never tried Hawthone or Holly but would like too. I've some cherry seasoning for this winter which I hear produces a nice smell.

 

I steer well clear of London Plane and Poplar!
