Is acacia a good tree to use for firewood?


Acacia is an excellent firewood species. Not only does it burn hot, but it also makes for long-lasting fires. I highly recommend using it.

Just be careful when harvesting the wood as many species of acacia trees do have thorns.

My Experience with Acacia NEW

First time user of this wood today!
Yes, it catches fire relatively easily, (essential for me!) But seems to burn up a little bit fast?
But I'm loving it, it isn't too fast burning up.
It is lovely and warm here as I type!

Acacia's thorns, to crown it all, have healing abilities. If you take this tree for the firewood, you ca also use the thorns to make the mixture to take if you have a stomachache. It's one of the most ancient and important trees for our health.
