Burning properties of different woods

Alder

Produces poor heat output and burns quickly.

Apple

A very good wood that burns slow and steady when dry, it has small flame size, and does not produce sparking or spitting. It produces a disappointing flame.

Ash

One of best woods for burning. It produces a steady flame and good heat output.

Beech

Burns very much like ash, due to its high water content it can take much longer to season the other types.

Birch

Produces good heat output but it does burn quickly. Bright flames and a pleasing smell. The sap can cause deposits to form in the flue with prolonged use.

Blackthorn

Has a slow burn, with good heat output.

Cedar

Is a good burning wood that produces a consistent and long heat output. It burns with a small flame, but does tend to crackle and spit.

Cherry

A slow burning wood that produces a good heat output. Cherry needs to be seasoned well.

Chestnut

A poor burning wood that produces a small flame and little heat.

Douglas Fir

A poor burning wood that produces a small flame and poor heat output. The sap can cause deposits to form in the flue with prolonged use.

Elder

A poor burning wood that produces a small flame and poor heat output.

Elm

Burns well but slowly so it generally needs a faster burning log to support burning. It should be dried for two years for best results.

Hazel

Is a good but fast burning wood but still produces a good heat.

Holly

Is a fast burning wood that produces good flame but little heat output. Holly will burn green, but best dried for a minimum of a year.

Laburnum

A very smokey wood with a poor burn. Do not use can be poisonous.

Larch

Produces a reasonable heat output, but it needs to be well seasoned. The sap can cause deposits to form in the flue with prolonged use.

Laurel

Burns with a good flame but only reasonable heat output.

Maple

Is a good burning wood that produces a good flame and heat output.

Oak

One of best woods for burning. Because of its density, oak produces a small flame and very slow burn, requires time to season well.

Pear

Burns steady with reasonable heat output. It produces a disappointing flame. Similar to apple wood.

Pine

Burns fast with a good flame, but the resin sap can cause deposits to form in the flue and can increase the risk of a chimney fire.

Plum

A good burning wood that produces good heat output.

Rowan

Is a good burning wood that has a slow burn with good heat output.

Spruce

Produces a poor heat output and it does not last very long, ideal for starting fires.

Sycamore

Produces a good flame, but with only moderate heat output.

Walnut

Is a moderate to good burning wood.

Willow

A poor fire wood that does not burn very well even when seasoned.

Yew

A good burning wood as it has a slow burn, and produces a very good heat output.
