Willow to boot. Might be nice for a wood turner, burl heaven!
A backhoe and a deep long hole in the ground. Done deal.
Throw that pig down the holler.
Well, how about felling then bucking this tree. Then you still have to figure out how to split it.
Set fire to it on the spot! Its EVIL!
I would have to be pretty bad off to burn willow again those where some stinky cold nights.
Cut willow once many years ago. Never again.....if that's all there was and I didn't have back up heat I'd set up a couple kerosene heaters before I would burn that stuff.
Pete, I'd rather burn some of your wet pallets than dry willow.
Years ago a friend cut down a willow. I took two truckloads of the stuff. That gave new meaning to waste of time.
What's the deal with willow?
I take everything I find, no matter how ugly.
Does it really smell that bad inside a sealed stove?
It's pretty low on the BTU CHART HERE
I here It's hard to split and smells bad , never had any myself
No, it's when the smoke gets outside that you will be busted for polluting the air.
Willow stinks when burned, splits like crap, & makes less BTUs than cardboard. Next question. A C
Is that real?
Not me. Either
Your neighbors will start a class action lawsuit.
Yes, but you won't find it around here. Don't remember what it is called nor where it grows. Here is another called Dragon Blood.
Honestly . . . I'd give it a try . . . with my hydraulic splitter . . . and I would not expect nice, neat splits . . . but rather mangly looking splits that would be put on the camp fire/fire pit wood pile.
I have burned willow, and didn't notice any offensive smell, but of course I can't smell the fire when it is in my stove. I guess if I go outside and far enough downwind I can smell it, but I didn't do that. My only objection to willow is that it is very light and doesn't burn for long. I save it for campfires, but if I had to I'd burn it in the stove.
I got a rack body truck load of the stuff and it is horrible to split. Someone told it smell like cat piss when burning and that is exactly what it smells like. DISGUSTING!
I hate cutting willow, I hate splitting willow, and I hate burning willow......
That said, I have a HUGE willow tree to do for a guy in a couple of weeks.....anyone want the wood? Oh, and I'll have a sweaty, rank pair of jeans and a nasty azz T-shirt to go with it, because the way that stuff smells when cutting, I'll be shedding my clothes on the spot before I crawl in my truck.....YUCK!
I've got a guy up the road who will actually give me gas money to haul that chit to his house. He uses it in his outdoor burner, and I am MORE than sure his neighbors hate his guts for it!!
Drop it off here. My neighbors deserve it.
A guy i work with calls willow "Piss Willow". I have no experience with it myself.
