    Question:

    I have a wood fire that I would like to burn seasoned ( approx. 1 year ) Eucalyptus wood in . ( I live on property where it is prolific ) is this a viable fuel ? Does it heat well & produce good coals ?



    Answer:

    I have no personal experience with Eucalyptus, however I have spoken to some people who live in Isreal and they assure me that it burns well (it is the only wood they burn).
    I'll see if I can find some written information on it.

    11/2007 A google search for "eucalyptus firewood" turned up numerous articles on it's use as well as several advertisments for cords of eucalyptus for sale. So it seems it's use as a firewood is fairly commonplace.
