Hi all

I was searching the web today for information on burning Cottonwood trees for heating and found this website. I thought those of you who heat with wood in the winter would like this info.

Here in Tollgate Canyon, Utah. I find the crackling sound of the fire adds ambiance to my day and helps warm me quickly after my x-country ski. Reduced heating/propane bills also are a bonus. My husband loves many things about the fire and whole wood gathering season. It is helps him stay in shape in winter and after bike season is over. I think he has FIREWOOD OCD as described on the web site he likes to talk about his extensive wood pile and how many cords of wood we have stacked. It may also be all of the tools involved, chainsaw, ax, and maul. He takes great pride in all of this equipment and I have to admit there is something about a man that can split wood.

so… does anyone know anything about burning cottonwood?
