Hello all- Life once again, due to unanticipated events, finds me less far along in preparing wood than I wish I was. I am not in a total jam but need to be really focused, for safety margin, not only how much I cut and how quickly get it done, but also on what will season quickly. Yellow birch has become one of my favorite all around woods to burn- seems to have a heat output, at least in my Econoburn, which surpasses even what the standardized BTU/cord data would suggest. It nets tremendous heat output during the burn, and it coals and burns for a long time. Some woods such as Cherry seem to season almost astonishingly fast, whereas others such as Oak seem to be astonishingly slow. Density doesn't seem to be a sole determinant, as Hophornbeam seems to season relatively quickly especially in light of its tremendous density. White Ash is a supposed winner in terms of both initial/ inherent moisture content and its speed of seasoning, but it doesn't coal all that well or last all that long in my Econoburn, so despite some pretty decent BTU data, it's not as much of a clear winner as it looks like on paper, at least in my unit. I haven't yet developed as much of an intuitive sense of where yellow birch falls on the spectrum of how well/ quickly it gives off its moisture once it has been cut/ split/ stacked under an overhang, with sun beating on it. Thoughts/ suggestions? Thanks!
