Default Re: Oregon types of wood

Pallets are strange beasts. If they were used to carry leaky containers of nasty stuff whether it be liquid or powder they could get contaminated with that stuff. If they are used to carry food stuff they might be better. (I hope) It is best to know what they carried. The really good ones around here are usually recycled and reused. Some places even charge a deposit to get them back in circulation. Just know what was on them and if they were contaminated if you are to burn them.

BEST WOOD TO BURN
All solid fuel, whether it is coal, pine, oak or any grain
has about 12,000 BTU's per pound if its moisture
content is zero. Wood that has been cut, split and air
dried for 2 years has about 8,000 usable BTU's per
pound. Hardwood such as oak or hard maple has
nearly twice the BTU's per cord as pine or aspen
because it is nearly twice as heavy.
Freshly cut wood has about 50% moisture content.
Wood that has been cut and split for 2 years has about
20%. Wood must reach at least 435 to ignite. High
moisture content wood does not allow the gases in
wood to get hot enough to provide complete
combustion, thereby creating smoke and creosote,
which is usable energy, but wasted because of
incomplete combustion.
