    Got a really nice score of black cherry yesterday. I was at the neighbors yesterday working on that 44 in oak and my friend comes out and takes me to the other side of the property where he had a cherry taken down.. its good size. I have a bunch more of this to grab.. 20190210_173152.jpg 20190210_173158.jpg

    It does season quickly, I'm burning that right now, leaves too much ash for my taste but have to burn what I got.

    I love me some black cherry. It does season fast and i like how it coles. I can dampen it down and just let the stove sit there and simmer. Black cherry was one of my first woods that i ran through my stove

    I just got a dump truck load of cherry. It is about 5 Nissan pickup loads of wood. It was split and delivered to my house for $250.

    Am looking forward to burning it two years from now. Have it all stacked in my woodshed now.

    Smells good when the door is opened, wayyyyy tooo much ash, medium heat. The only worse ash leaving wood I burned was black walnut. Way too much ash, but gotta warm with what one has.

    Processing black cherry slows me down . . . I keep stopping to sniff the splits. My wife even caught me one day stopping to sniff the wood. I was sniffing away when all of a sudden I hear "What are you doing?"

    I love black cherry. I pick it out and use it more in the smoker, though.

    The cherry looks to be fairly straight grained. Should split easy. It dries down quickly, is medium in wt when dry, minimal bark layer, starts and burns easy, puts out medium heat. It does produce ash, about like silver maple. But I think it's got a lot of fluff, that if allowed to accumulate, will compress to that of others. I burn both silver maple (silver maples can get huge) and cherry at times, and to get some compression going I opt to letting ash accumulate vs cleaning the ash pan.

    Cherry is nice to burn ash or not. Seasons quickly which is a plus. The last cherry I got was free and not sure about you guys, but free wood always burns nice, regardless of the species.

    LMAO. Been there & been caught doing that. When passing by with the lawnmower I would sometimes grab a chunk & give it a sniff & toss it back on the pile the next round. The stuff I split in March smelled nice all summer , when the wind was right I could smell it on the breeze at the house.
