I know all that works out there and people know how to make it go.

I cut down three dying pine trees and two big junipers that were in my way in the yard and gave three loads of it to my older son's FIL and they used it in a fire pit. The rest I burned in a fire pit in the back yard. I'm sure someone out there would have enjoyed heating with it.

Seems I remember you had some Siberian Elms? I had a couple hundred of Chinese elms I had planted as a wind break in the early 70's. But as time goes on, they die or I build a building and I burn them in the fire place. The power company took out about two dozen back 16 years ago and cut down about a dozen to build a pole barn. I burned them in the fireplace. It is as good as ash as far as I'm concerned. I think the Chinese elm is a little different from the Siberian elm? The leaves look alike.

Yes I believe you are correct on the leaves being the same but Siberian elm has a different bark then Chinese elm and I think they get larger.    I know when lifting rounds of cottonwood and elm the elm is a lot heavier.

The Chinese elm has a beautiful striped grain. The grain texture reminds one of hickory.

One of those elm stumps will disappear after 12-15 years but a yellow pine stump will hang around a life time because of the sap.
