    Cottonwood is one of the poorest wood fuels; it does not dry well, and rots quickly. It splits poorly, because it is very fibrous. It produces a low level of energy per unit of volume of wood.[7]

    More I look at the pics and research I seriously doubt it's BL. Really looks like CW and you should get paid to come get that.


    The species has a fairly limited range, growing in just a handful of states through the Appalachian Mountains and into Missouri and Arkansas

    Looks like Honey Locust. You can tell by the orange color in the broken limb, and the bark looks like it too. Good firewood.

    Even the limb wood is good on locust if it isn’t punky. High BTUs throughout

    Yep Locust. Cottonwood not native to this area. Only here if someone planted it. I lived in that area for a few years. Go for it.

    70 years old, 1928. Old wood. I've never seen a dead black locust before - they seem almost impossible to kill. When they're cut off they'll send sprouts everywhere.

    That is definitely Black Locust, good score. I have a huge dead Black Locust in my back yard that needs to come down. Unfortunately this one needs a climber or boom truck to take her down safely. If you can fell those trees safely you might as well get them, that’s some of the best wood you can get. Extremely rot resistant, high btus and it dries faster than oak! Sparks can fly though cutting it, it’s funny to watch cutting it at dusk.

    Yea, it'll wear the chain a little. Especially if it's been standing dead. With the house nearby I might pass on those ones.

    They are leaning away and that's a shed in the picture. I plan on emptying the trailer by before the end of the week so i can head back over there next weekend to get those. Started splitting some to, that's some tough wood.

    If I had a steady supply of it thats all I would burn....I really like it! Even seasoned it is hard to start from a cold stove but once it does its a beautiful thing! I just always loaded on a good coal bed...no worries.

    Its toughness is what makes it such good firewood, ask these guys who cut and split hedge.
