    For the rest of my life I do only have two choices. Oak and Beech. I just payed off the mortgage on every Beech and Oak I have burned and will burn from this place.

    Whatever is free, I'm not fussy. If it's wood it will burn.

    i'm loving using cedar to light cuz its explosive and yellow box (eucalyptus) to burn. yellow box is a bastard to process but the smell when it burns is fantastic and burns long and strong! It always reminds me of camping...

    So, I've never burned either, but I read somewhere that it's hard to get going on it's own. I'd probably change one to silver maple.

    Dreamer. Spruce and birch for you.

    Unless the forests are suddenly stricken by foreign bugs and diseases I am pretty sure I will not have to limit myself to just burning two wood species.
