Been reading quite a lot about types of firewood and BTU charts etc. It seems like Ash and Beech and other hardwoods are the best? But which is preferred out of these two? Oh and I’m finding it quite difficult to source them in my area, any advice?
Your biggest concern is sourcing the area, I would o with whichever hard wood you find easiest to get in your locality. The reason hardwoods burn better is that they are more dense, therefore combust for longer and have little water content.
Pallet wood is usually fine, as it’s typically untreated. Not always, though.
oak woods are good
Hawthorn – A traditional firewood with a slow burn and strong heat output
hmm I like to have an assortment of wood as well, makes burning in the less cold days and the shoulder season easier.
