Hi All, Great Thread!

So like a few others, I'm in southern California (Orange County) where hardwoods aren't exactly plentiful and definitely aren't cheap (if only we could burn palm trees!).

My question to you all is what you think about when a firewood guy offers "Mixed hardwoods". Is that good enough for you or do you keep it to a single species?

Most of my local suppliers offer a mix of something Elm, Sycamore, Apricot, Eucalyptus, Maple, Red Oak, and Ash.

I know Eucalyptus is a scratch but I was curious just in general what you thought about the idea of these mixed bundles. I know it's adding a lot of extra variables but it would be quite a bit cheaper and easier than continuing to try and hunt down Oak.

Thanks

Exclamation Re: Choosing and finding wood

G'day
Will palm trees burn? You better believe it. I live in the sub tropics and every garden it seems has palm trees..... And the dreaded palm fronds. That drop off and have to be disposed off.
Palm fronds contain oil so palm frond burn well really well. I get a fire going with hardwood and the domes good and warm fold them into 1/3 rd and push them in. Even 1/2 dry they will burn . But not more than 1 or 2 at once otherwise the flames will be licking out the door and the heat wasted.
You have to do a bit of work as they burn away quickly but it supplements my hardwood stocks and clears the yard of fronds.
Its my local renewable resource.....
Regards dave
