What type of wood do you have the most of in your neck of the woods that's the most available for you to cut and burn?

Mostly white pine. I have acres of black oak, maple and ash to cut but I have an arborist drop off whatever he doesn't want.

EAB hasn't made it here yet.
Your lucky, for now. They are coming.
I've noticed that most of the affected trees around me are what I would call juvenile trees. 4"-18" stems. The younger trees haven't been affected as badly and the older mature trees(18"+) seem to still be somewhat ok. I don't know why this is but it is something that I've noticed. Maybe the older trees have tougher/thicker bark and the younger trees just haven't matured enough to be quite right for the EAB, IDK. Again this is just what I've noticed

Got a good mix of hardwood to pull from here in PA. Red and white oak, beech, hard maple, lots of black cherry. Run into some shagbark hickory now and then but oh so hard on chains. Gotta keep some of the beech and hickory around to supply buddies for smoking our speed beef!

Just about anything you could want is available in my area. Mostly take red, white and chestnut oak, hickory, cherry and locust. Burning the last of some short cut white oak for the next couple weeks, then it is onto some proper length locust and cherry for the remainder of the serious heating season.

If you didn't want to cut it down yourself, they give away all the poplar, maple and more than you could burn in northern VA/DC with all the tree service work that goes on. Just have to drive up to that shithole to pick it up.

Lot of maple, oak,mostly red, and ash. Also seem to have a lot of black cherry past few years, and some good size hardhack. We were always told hardback was the hottest burning wood you could get, but it usually dies before getting very big, so lots of sawing per cord.

Yikes. That looks like it smarts. My Great uncle, a horse farmer, lost half a finger in a baler. Another uncle used to joke that was just a story, and that he had really just worn it down over the years helping the girls up in the saddle, lol.
