Cost of wood


Recommended Posts

Sweet 17, Jane and Danny's link explains it.

We were really confused when we started because we assumed that vert meant green as in unseasoned wood. I still don't really know what's going on except that chene vert comes from black oaks and appears to burn longer and hotter than other woods.

Thanks for coming back, Hoddy, and thank you, Danny, for your informative link.

I doubt mine will be chene vert but, I shall now go ahead and order with some confidence.

Last year, our first, we seemed to have had a lot of chestnut mixed with the chene and OH reckoned that we were getting a lot of resin and muck in our stoves because of that.

I never thought the day would come when I'd get to be seriously interested in the most suitable wood for burning to keep warm, seeing as I lived in the tropics as a child and fires were only for cooking!
