    Hey guys

    I just want to confirm something I noticed this year: when burning softwood ONLY, my secondaries are weak. They are present but not in the same amount as when I mix woods. Is it simply because softwood is less dense and therefore less off-gassing? My softwood MC is around 12-15%.

    When burning hardwood I can get secondaries for a lonnnng time. Softwood secondaries will last alot less.
