    HOPE you have a chain saw. looks perfectly seasoned wood. If its dripping with sap dont burn it. It would be cool if you make a huge bonfire and then I can find you on google earth. Spell out LaSAyburrr with them logs and I will know its you!

    When I had the woodstove back in Massachusetts, if it was wood and it would burn, into the stove it went. I'd even stop and pick up chock blocks that had bounced out of their racks on heavy trucks. I never had a problem. I did clean the chimney annually.

    I’ve always heard don’t burn pine in a wood stove or fireplace. I know people do (as seen by some of the feedback you’ve received) so it clearly can be done. Here in the South (Tennessee) we have sooo many options that we just skip over the pine.

    Pine burns HOT and Fast. Hardwood, I believe suits us better because we get a longer burn time from it and “cold” here sure isn’t what many of you call cold.

    As mentioned a number of times SAFETY should be of the utmost concern!! Mark

    If it burns hot and fast, it's not making a lot of smoke that would condense on the chimney. It's the slow, smokey, smoldering fire that is the problem. No matter what the wood.
