    Looks like black walnut to me. Remember all the qualities, including the smell, for next time.

    Walnut smells like big money to me.

    Why is it that some folks dont like to burn walnut?

    I think it is just because of the smell. I used to sell a few walnut logs and if you got some good ones, well, let's just say we made a few dollars on them. The biggest problem though was that most walnut trees were in old fencerows. That means there will be hardware in them which is tough on the saws at the mill. You have to be very careful on those things.

    I have been burning mostly black walnut for the last two heating seasons and most of this one too. That looks like bl. walnut. It yields about 20.2 million btu per cord. (http://www.chimneysweeponline.com/howood.htm). It seems to like to hold water if the splits are too big so if you split big do it now to give it time to dry out for next season.
