    It's so E-Z to get started and very entertaining once it's going. I will definitely keep pine on the list. Heavy on the pine in spring/fall. Mixed with the hardwoods in the winter.

    Yes as long as it is dry it is great! I feel bad for all the people around here who won't touch it.

    I was told to never burn Pine. I do have some Pine rounds (2 years old) that I split into little sticks as a firestarter....but never burn a load of it

    Pine is fine !!! Great in the shoulder season. Now don't go and fully load the stove up, you then may be having your own thermo-nuclear meltdown.

    Pine rocks! I'll be burning mostly pine this winter...probably 5 cord worth. It's great, but doesn't leave much in the way of coals. Overnight burns will be 2yr old oak, but all pine during the day.

    I burned some pine this year for the first time in my life after being raised to believe it would result creosote disaster (which i know is wrong now). I have to say that nothing seasons faster in my experience and it does indeed burn hot. Having some soft wood around comes in handy.

    I'll bet you were also told about lots of things you should never do. Then you found out that you should also lose the qualifier "never."

    Moderation is good, in moderation.

    I warm my house up with this stove of mine.
    I burn it hot most of the time.
    Any thing that burns is mine.
    Because it’s fine.
    I burn the pine.

    I don't think she has a stove to burn it in. I don't recall seeing any pics. :mad:

    Come to think of it, of Gamma's stove either.

    Okay, I was raised that pine was creosote evil, but my dad has started burning it because of a bumper crop of dead pines on his property.

    Is it best to burn really hot? Or doesn't it really matter? I have a fireplace that I like to use alot, and pine would be nice and cheap and plentiful.

    Just dry it over a year to a low moisture content liike any other firewood. Then burn it like any other firewood. Take it easier with the dead pines because they burn hotter and faster than fresh cut pine properly dried.

    The mistake that people make is burning pine too early just because it will burn.

    I've been burning pine this fall and loving it. I have barely had to touch my hardwoods yet. I'm very happy burning pine and poplar all fall. Tonight it's in the upper 20s so I through two splits of oak in there with a couple splits of pine. I anticipate a warm house and coals in the morning.

    K glad to hear the 30 is working out for you.

    I burned alot last year which was about 9 months seasoned which did ok. This year the remaining cord, now 1 year and 9 months is burning awesomely. It burns hot but quick. It had my NCI up to 800 without blower the other night.

    I must confess . . . I kinda enjoy watching pine burn during this time of year . . . especially since it often seems to put on a nice show with snaps, pops and a decent secondary light show.
