Macadamia Nut Trees as Firewood

by Renee
(Oceanside, CA)

Hi. I have the opportunity to get some free macadamia nut wood. Is this safe to burn in my indoor fireplace?

Answer

Renee,

Macadamia trees make good firewood and are perfectly safe to burn in your fireplace. Like most fruit and nut trees, they are very dense and therefore burn very well.

Like all species of wood, make sure that the wood is properly seasoned before you burn it and you'll be fine.

Hope this helps!

Burning Nut Shells
by: Lindsay

I have a macadamia orchard next door and they have bulk (trailer) loads of dry nut shells as waste. I have heard that the shells burn just below the efficiency of brown coal.... would they be ok to burn in a wood and/or coal fire?
