Planning on ordering wood next week and subject of cottonwood as firewood has surfaced. Two schools of thought: 1. It's wood. Burn it. (From the school of 'If it is wood - don't matter what kind it is - burn anything.' 2. Don't burn cottonwood. (From the school of 'Be selective. If it is stinky, dirty and doesn't give off much heat turn it into something else other than firewood.) Would love to hear what you all think on the subject.
