    I love pine and it is readily available around us. We us it throughout the spring and fall as well as when we need heat fast.

    I also have an unlimited supply of mostly Oak-Locust-Cherry-Ash so I don't bring Pine home- shoulder season I burn the Cherry, so thats up to you.
    Bring some home then you will decide for yourself.

    No, most of it is pitch pine AKA knotty pine, at least here on the Cape. White pine is an awesome fuel, I burn both.

    Yep. Well actually no, I never cut pine, I just allow tree guys to dump it in my yard, as long as it has been cut to stove length first.
    If I didn't get it free though, I would cut some, because once or twice per winter it is so bitterly cold that the amount of oak I need to burn fills the stove with un-consumed coals, till there is no room for any more wood. On those few nights, I mix pine in. The fast burning, hot pine enables the oak coals to burn down.

    Until I learned this trick, I suffered ocasionally.
