Identifying aspen firewood

by Steve
(Almonte Ontario Canada)

I took this tree down about 3 weeks ago and cant figure out what kind it is? It was a large tree straight and true for at least 40-50 feet before branching off. Any help on figuring out this for me would be great as I plan to use it as heating wood this winter.

Answer

Steve,

Although I can't be 100 percent sure without seeing the tree in person, the log looks like aspen. Aspen (Populus) is a hardwood but a relatively soft one. It is a below average firewood species, but like most wood, it will burn fine when properly seasoned. Its heating value is similar to pine. I wouldn't use it exclusively to heat your home in the winter, but it's fine to mix with other superior species.

I hope this help!

-Firewood Matt

Basswood
by: Steve

Hi Matt,
The tree in question is a Basswood. Finally got it figured out.

Steve


Editor Comment:
Steve,

Glad that you got it figured out. As I said, sometimes pictures can be tricky. American basswood (Tilia americana) from a firewood standpoint is virtually identical to aspen, so all the previous comments are still applicable.

All the best,

Matt

Thanks for the help.
by: Steve

Thanks Matt, I plan to just heat the garage and this wood should do the trick! I heat with wood pellets and oil for the house. This wood is just going to be for those cold winter days out working on something and have a little slip of something...

Thanks for your help.

Steve.
