This wood feels extremely dense, hard and heavy. It smells like the the inside of an oak barrel thats been holding a sweet moscato white wine. It was already cut up and an older couple said I was free to take. The house was 1823 construction so this tree must've been an oldy based on the size? They said it was Bradford Pear or Flowering Pear Tree. Can anyone share their experience with this wood? Ill be storing it for next year (2015-2016 winter) and I hope thats enough seasoning. Anyone know the BTU by cord?
