Goats willow

Recommended Posts

As per Daniel and Mark.


In a log burner, dry goat willow catches fire well and roars away, burns well. Doesn't last as well as the denser woods, but gives off lots of heat quickly.

I really like it and burn a fair bit at home myself on open fire. Ive been burning some 3 yr seasoned stuff and doesnt spit at all, gives off loads of heat and catchs easily. Thats all I want really.

It takes ages to dry but goes nice and light! I find notty bits a bugger to split with a splitter as it just compresses rather than pop open and ends up cutting it rather than splitting it

I wouldn't burn it on an open fire without a guard but in a stove it's great


Strange. I havent found it spits at all on my open fire. It is very dry stuff mind
