Is ash decent wood to burn?

I was asked if I wanted a large ash tree for wood.

If its good burning wood I might take it, but this is going to be a PITA tree to deal with. So even if the wood is marginal I'll probably pass

That's OK... He can haul it all back outside to the hole in the yard...
His ash hole will hold an infinite amount of ash...
But not so much blueberries...

I take me some beech. But hey, who we kiddin? If it's heatin the house - ash, beech, oak, maple, etc. it all counts and there ain't much difference IMO. I can't tell the difference between 75 degrees supplied by beech and 75 degrees supplied by oak ;)

Ash is good food for your wood burner.

How's it compare to oak?? Probably won't (yeah okay, absolutely), won't hold a fire as long. It usually splits straight and clean so it's nice to stack and as mentioned earlier, it burns well with little seasoning time.

Yeah, but you tarp the pile religiously. We know.:bananawhip:

Ash is my absolute all time favorite firewood.
Cuts good, splits so easy all I do is shake my Fiskars at it and it falls apart.
Not as heavy to work with as many of the others.
Makes a good fire and lasts reasonably long.
AND you can burn it straight off the stump!
