Tulip Poplar firewood quaity

How would you rate eastern Tulip Poplar for firewood quality?
Tuliptree (Liriodendron tulipifera), also known as yellow poplar or tulip poplar, is a slightly below average firewood species. From a heating value standpoint, it is a little better than pine and about the same as aspen. It's a great wood to have for camp fires, and also decent if you mix it with some other superior species of firewood for your wood stove.
Being in Pennsylvania, I would just caution you not to pay hard wood prices for this firewood if you are purchasing it. As always, this wood is only suitable for burning once it has been fully seasoned.
I hope this helps.
