work RUSSIAN OLIVE FIREWOOD
Advertisement
I am getting 4 cords of seasoned, split and delivered Russian Olive firewood for $800. Has anyone ever burned it? From what I can tell it's a dense wood that probably offers a decent BTU return. Just wondering if anyone has thoughts on it. The seller says that it's stinky but burns a lot longer than pine.

I've been burning Spanish olive for the last few years and it's way better than the pine and eucalyptus I used before.

Seasoned, split, delivered is going to be a bit more especially since it's November and most people have already filled their firewood order. With #2 diesel going for $3.70, it would cost me about $2200 to do the same job as $800 in firewood. If I haul and split it myself it's $125, but worth the extra cost to have it done for me, and also puts more money back into the local economy, which is good.

Hmmm... interesting. Does it smell bad when you burn it? I've never burned eucalyptus before. Sounds expensive.

Where you at?
I'm in Ohio (duh) and I've been cutting down some of my ash trees because they are getting the ash borer. They make excellent firewood.

Around here the russian olive is a small trash tree that takes over fields and never gets big.

I'm taliking about olive wood grown in Spain here btw. No it doesn't smell bad, much less than either pine or euc. Eucalyptus is the junk wood around here.

Burning eucalyptus is the quickest way to cause a chimney fire and burn your house down. It's because of all the resin in the wood that ends up coating your chimney in flammable creosote.

And pine's not much better.
