Pecan Firewood?

by Emily
(Macon, GA)

I have a woodstove (full of potatos now that it is spring in GA) and am always on the lookout for wood. I have also got a pecan tree in my yard that for various reasons has to be cut down. Is pecan safe to use in a wood stove?
Thanks!

Answer

Emily,

I must admit that I am a little confused as to why you fill your wood stove with potatoes in the spring. I am far from a potato farmer, so perhaps you can add a comment to explain?

Pecan is an excellent firewood species. Like most fruit and nut trees, it makes for excellent firewood and has a pleasant aroma when burned.

I highly recommend burning it. Just make sure that you process it properly and allow adequate time for seasoning before you use it in your wood stove.

Best of luck!

Pecan firewood is simply good in fire burning. Once i have been to assignment writing in australia there i met with this wood and i just surprised by it's firing. Any way's i got the best information about fire wood here which made me extremely happy.

In case you have not heard of this; people in some parts live on potatoes and this is one veggie that can be used indifferently with seasons. And of course pecan wood is a good one to burn. It surely does have a nice aroma when burnt. EHR Software
