    To the mods that hate pictures: When I posted that, the pictures showed much smaller; like the ones in the quoted reply. Why?

    In case it wasnt already decided; definately cottonwood. I got a new saw on Friday and ran out there and cut about 50 cookies, didn't take any home though...

    Just curious. I've never burned any cottonwood. What's everybody's thoughts on BTUs with cottonwood. Any good to burn?

    Must not be very good as only White Cedar has a lower btu rating on my chart. Too bad though as I have a mosnter one on our property that would like to take down one day. I'm always picking up debris from it after a windy day.
