Thank you!
I can't though spot the low BTU and smell anywhere on those articals.
Seems the same readings is actually all over the net, I can't seem to find a personal opinion of a person that has actually burned paulownia.

Dimitri, After looking on the net a few places, it basicly says, if its real dry, it burns like cedar...not sure of fumes, as I find no mention...but wet wood will smolder and stink. All you can do is try it. ..at least to just come up to heat...switch to the better stuff later.

They are fast growing softwood trees and more suited to pulp production than anything else. Some of the tree plantation companies are using them. Not what you need to fire your WFO. IMHO

Nothing is really burning in the vid, it must all be wet wood.
