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?
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!
