Wood for burning
All wood burns better when it has been seasoned because a great deal of excess moisture is removed from the log. A fresh log can be made up of up to 45% water while a seasoned log will only contain 20-25%. Some logs burn even better if they are split, rather than burnt as whole logs.
Top burning woods:
Apple and pear – burns slowly and steadily with a small flame but gives good heat with a pleasant aroma
Ash – one of the best burning woods (it will even burn when green)
Beech and hornbeam – good burner when it has been well seasoned
Birch – good level of heat with a bright flame – burns quickly.
Blackthorn and hawthorn – very good slow burner with good heat
Cherry – also burns slowly with good level of heat and a pleasant scent.
Cypress – burns very well when it has been seasoned but it does burn quickly and can spit
Hazel – good burner but has so many other better uses!
Holly – when well seasoned, this is a good burner
Horse Chestnut – spits a lot but it is a fantastic warm burner
Larch – average heat and spits and crackles
Maple – good burner
Oak – oak is a fantastically slow burning, emitting great
Pine – bright flame and good burner but tends to crackle and spit
Poplar – is used to make matchsticks which gives an idea of how slow burning it is, producing little heat. Avoid if possible
Willow – very good – in fact there is growing interest in biomass production of coppiced willow as a fuel.
