Can sweetgum be used for firewood?AnswerSweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua) is an average firewood species. Its heating value is similar to that of white birch or elm. It is, however, very difficult to split and takes a long time to season. My recommendation is to split it as soon as it is cut to make the splitting easier and expedite the seasoning process. -Firewood Matt
