  • more choices than I thought for firewood

    How do I know the diference between soft maple and hard maple? There seems to be a big difference between the two for heat output. I am in British Columbia Canada. I also have a Yelo cedar and Cyprus suplier. He says the yelo cedar burns hot but I have been told to just use cedar for kinkling. Is there something special about "YELO" cedar or is it just like red cedar for heat? Any thoughts on the cuprus, I didn't even know we had cyprus in the area here but apparently we do. ...wayne

      Hi Wayne,
      I can't help you with your hard and soft cedar query but I have a pile of used western red cedar from our school demolition and that is great kindling. With a straight grain, it splits a dream and burns great. Really good for catching the heavier split wood. I use eucalypt (river red gum), for all my heat logs which goes against other members ideas, but it produces huge heat from minimal wood and it is freely availbale here.
