Willow as Firewood

by Troy
(Silver Lake)

Is willow worth the time for fire wood in an high efficient fireplace?


Answer

Troy,

Willow is a suitable firewood species once it has been properly seasoned. However, it does not burn as long as most species of firewood. My recommendation is to burn it if it's free. Otherwise you're better off buying better firewood species.

Hope this helps!

Willow can be handy for getting started
by: Lou Arellano

Willow is light and soft. It cuts like butter. It lights very easily and burns very hot and very fast, almost like paper. Don't burn full charges of willow, but blend it with harder species. Willow can be useful for getting a cold place warm in a hurry and as a base for lighting other hard-to-ignite species, large chunks and unseasoned or rain-dampened wood (if that's all you have available). Keep a willow fire carefully throttled and watch out not to overheat and thereby damage your wood burning appliance and flues. It would also be easy to start a chimney fire by using the wider damper settings that usually go with burning harder species. That said, if you have the extra space to store it in addition to a stock of the usual preferred hardwoods; or you want to do someone a favor by getting it out of their yard (for example, someone who often gives you good hardwood trees now needs a willow removed), "Take it if it's free." Willow = BTU's.
