    Question:

    My husband cut down a black walnut tree that was to close to the house last fall and the wood has just been sitting there. He has heard that walnut will not burn well and I say wood will burn (whether walnut or cherry, etc.) Any help with this will be appreciated.



    Answer:

    You are correct. Although wood may have different burning qualities, such as how long the coals stay hot, most all woods are burnable...especially hardwoods like walnut.

    from another site:

    Although walnuts are not considered the ideal shade or ornamental tree, this is the highest value for most large urban walnut trees. If, for whatever reason, a large urban walnut must be cut, the highest value of the wood is most commonly firewood. Large, open-grown black walnuts often contain one or more cords of firewood, and walnut is an excellent firewood of medium density and relatively easy to burn.
