I have always burned well seasoned oak, hickory, or maple.
A neighbor just brought me a pickup load of spruce/pine.
I have heard that pine will cresote & cause build up in the chiminy.
I have a new, one month old, Princess Ultra Cat wood stove.
Does pine burn dirtyer than the hardwoods? What is the best way to burn it?
Season it a year more, mix it with oak, burn it without mixing?
I lived in Chugiak in the 50's, & Moose Pass in the early 60's. Now in S.C.
Brother & sister now live in Wasilla.
