Quite wet when green, but burns quite hot once dry. Some of it develops massive shakes as it dries, almost splits itself.

got some in the shed, it`s been in there for 2 years.

Nice and dry and most of the bark has fallen off. It can be difficult to split but if you cut logs short it will split down o.k.


Caution on a open fire even when dry it will pop a bit but not to much.


good heat from it and simliar to oak quiet slow to burn but hot.


i would say 7/10 overal

Great firewood and burns very very hot due to residual oils. Burns better with a slow burner such as oak or beech to prolong the heat. I'm burning mine after 6 months of seasoning on a well aired firewood shelter. Probably my fave wood to burn with ash.
