I came home today to find a tree service working away two doors down. My neighbor, despite a burner, didn't want to hassle with cutting and splitting, so the tree service was hauling it away. That was a surprise to me, so they gladly dropped a truck load off for me. I was too late for the first truck load, but still a fortunate score. ( I told the tree service they can drop more good off from the neighborhood in the future... You gotta work on your connections!). Red alder. Easy to split. I consider it a "soft" hardwood. It'll burn well in 2020-2021, but I think it loses noticeable btu after more than a couple of years.
