I am new to this forum and have gained alot of knowledge from the posts on here. I live in God's country on the Eastern Shore of Virginia which is a hunter's and fisherman's paradise. Born and raised here and would never consider living anywhere else. We bought a 1991 201 Fireview and re-did the guts in it and it is best thing we have done for our old drafty house. We have been burning for about two years and we have access to firewood on our family land. We have oak, cherrry, hackberry,locust and maple to use. My question is we also have alot of American Holly and have read that it is excellent firewood with BTU's as high as hickory. Does anybody have any advise, experience with this wood? Thanks in advance for the help.
