Palo Verde Firewood
I recently had a big Paloverde tree destroyed by a storm in my yard. Can I use the wood from it as firewood in my open fireplace? We live in Southeast Arizona.
Unfortunately Palo Verde trees make very poor firewood. The wood burns very quickly, doesn't coal well, and gives off an unpleasant odor. That pretty much covers most of the undesirable qualities that you should try to avoid in firewood.
My advice is to dispose of the wood unless you are really hard up for some firewood.
Hope this helps!
