    You can't beat a nice piece of ash. I burn plenty of it, stump to stove.

    Ash is one of the few woods that burns ok when not seasoned - though it does not burn nearly as well as seasoned ash and will still aid in creosote formation.

    How much more creosote will fresh ash add when compared to a year old maple or oak?

    Little to none in my case, but I burn fairly hot as well.
