    Need a better picture of the bark and a split. Take the picture in daylight. The flash changes the look.

    Newspapers are BTU's too! How many would go out on recycle day collecting them? If you do get newspapers, you must put them in a shed!

    My vote is Tulip Poplar too. I burn it, not my favorite but it burns, dries out fairly quickly and good for shoulder season fires.

    GZECC As for picking up newspapers on recycle days that is illegal in most places now because that is a revenue source for the municipality and you are taking it. They will ticket you.

    If it really is Tulip Poplar, aka Yellow Poplar, it is a decent, medium density and medium btu firewood. Not Oak or Hickory, by any means, but a lot better than cottonwood, aspen, and other 'true' poplars. Tulip Poplar is not related to true poplars. In my experience it is a decent firewood. It has about as many BTUs as soft maple, elm, walnut, and many other hardwoods, if I am reading the charts right.

    I have never seen free wood. There is a cost to getting it, cutting it, splitting it, stacking it , etc, etc, etc, Poplar has the worst cost/ benefit ratio of all the hardwoods. If you can wait, look for a better hardwood. If all you can find is poplar, than go for it and enjoy!
