    I'll take oak any day of the week... those that don't like it are just jealous because they don't have access to any. :cheese:

    We go through a lot of pine in our Crawford Century cookstove. Plus a lot on the margins of heating season when a hot and fast quickie is in order.

    Owing to the fact white pine and red oak often times comprise mature stands, there's a saying I've heard in relation to heating with them. "Burn it as it grows," with the fast fire pine igniting the heat holding oak.

    We have 2 types of cherry in cantral NH. Pin cherry is very light and goes to punk about as quick as white birch. They even look a little similar, excepting the bark color. Then there's black cherry. Like oak, it rots from the outside in and has a longer shelflife if you're hunting dead and down stuff.
