Birch firewood


The quality of birch firewood can range from excellent to moderate depending on the species of birch you are using.

Birch are usually small to medium sized trees that grow in lowland areas and have shallow root systems.

These trees are probably best known for their unique bark.

As with most trees there are several different species within the birch family, but the yellow birch and the black birch produce the best firewood.

Another common species of birch called the white birch can also be used for firewood but it doesn’t supply as much heat as the yellow or black birch.

To learn more about each tree and their firewood characteristics lets take a closer look at each individual species.

Burning Black Birch

The black birch, also known as mountain mahogany, sweet birch and cherry birch, is probably the most desirable firewood within the birch family.

The wood has dense fibers which allows it to burn long and hot.

These qualities alone make it a prized firewood.

The black birch also has a unique sweet smell when it burns.

As with most birch species it’s recommended you cut and split black birch as soon as possible after felling the tree for optimal seasoning.

This is due to the high sap content within the tree.

The black birch is arguably among the top desirable firewood choices of all wood types.
