Arborist Out Of Fishers Indiana

(Fishers, IN U.S.)

Hello my name is Ryan. I am a 16 year high risk fell specialist and the private exterior design artist for the Western Golf Association.


We have a green home and have always burned firewood as our sole heat source for our 2800 square foot house.

Our native trees are ash, popular and oaks. We tend to fell more ash do to the emerald ash borer then anything in the Ohio Valley so that would be our choice of hardwoods to burn. It's easy to split and little to no seasoning time.

Then we're straight to black walnut and wild cherry. We stay cozy here in Indiana.

Ash Trees In Michigan
by: Nick - Firewood For Life

Ryan,

Thanks for your submission. It's always nice to hear everyone's comments and thoughts about firewood found throughout the United States and even the world.

I agree, ash is a great firewood choice. If I'm going to burn ash in a campfire or fireplace I prefer to let it season a little bit before trying to burn it.

I've found that even though ash has a low moisture content, some of it sizzles and smolders and doesn't burn very well if I don't let it season for at least a few months, but after that it's great!

On the other hand, if I'm using it in my outdoor wood furnace I just throw it right in and it burn's just fine.

The emerald ash borer has really done a lot of damage here in northern Michigan as well. We only have a handful of ash trees on our property (because it's pretty much all sugar maple) but as of this year I think all the ash trees are dead.

Thanks again for your submission and stay warm!
