    We have a few native American plum that have been culled with a few more to go. Semi thorny fruit wood with real plums in season. Sends up suckers and grows from seed (pits) too. Biggest we have is about 10" at the base and only grows about 12' high.Can take over a place not actively maintained. Any how... I was wondering if anybody has burned it and where it fits in the btu charts?

    Wood from fruit trees is sought-after, not only for heating but for cooking.

    This site says something good about it.

    Thanks sixminus1,
    I guess that is what I am looking for. I didn't know what kind of heat I should hope for but I was hoping it would be close to apple which is real good. I have a few trees that I intend to take out next spring. Now I have a place for them.
