Art in the garden is a bit of a hobby of mine.
Too much time on your hands, Eddie?

Has anyone has tried Princes Tree (paulownia)?
It's a fast growing tree that can be used as a biomass but i don't know if i could burn it as a wood log.

From the internet ... characteristics "Paulownia is a very good
insulator. Paulownia log homes are said to have twice the R factor as
pine or oak logs. This temperature resistance serves to give the wood a
high fire resistance. Ignition temperature is approximately 400 deg. C.
which is almost twice many conventional American hard and soft woods."
There are other mentions that basicly say that while it will burn, it doesn't have a high BTU....Hard to start, but OK to use...

hmmm. Everything I read says it is an invasive species, stinks when burnt, and has low BTU content. Sounds like a pass!

I burn cherry, mostly because I like the smell of it. And I don't use any type of kindling to get the fire started....I use a Weed-Dragon propane torch (a must-have).

Dry kindling, one match works for me. The only technology that I have added to my oven is an old style wall mounted bottle opener.
