    My husband cut down a black walnut tree that was to close to the house last fall and the wood has just been sitting there. He has heard that walnut will not burn well and I say wood will burn (whether walnut or cherry, etc.) Any help with this will be appreciated.


    You are correct. Although wood may have different burning qualities, such as how long the coals stay hot, most all woods are burnable...especially hardwoods like walnut.


    from another site:

    Although walnuts are not considered the ideal shade or ornamental tree, this is the highest value for most large urban walnut trees. If, for whatever reason, a large urban walnut must be cut, the highest value of the wood is most commonly firewood. Large, open-grown black walnuts often contain one or more cords of firewood, and walnut is an excellent firewood of medium density and relatively easy to burn.
