Maple And Poplar Firewood
(Northern New England)
Great site -- First time reader
Like you, I'm fascinated with firewood. My local area has a mixture of hardwoods.
Maple is my best bet, second for me is exactly what you had mentioned, what's abundant....plenty of Poplar. Quick burning, but, if you keep your wood stove on a slow burn, the fire will last quite a while and you can keep your home pretty warm.
Your site is now bookmarked, and I'll continue to visit!
