Will osage orange burn okay for firewood?

Answer

Osage-orange is actually one of the best burning firewoods in the world. It throws off a lot of heat, more than any other species in North America.

The only thing to watch out for is that it throws off a lot of sparks, especially when it isn't fully seasoned. Burn it once the moisture content is 20% or below and you will be amazed by the amount of heat that it produces.

I hope this helps!
