Pelenaka does all her canning on an old laundry stove. All that stove burns is maple soft or hard. I'd rather burn Beech or Hickory, but, the town dump is full of maple after every storm. Can't beat free with a stick!(no pun intended)
i thought silver maple was considered a hard maple? well whatever. i burned a lot of silver maple in the early season last year. it burned very well, but it doesn't last as long as oak or locust. great stuff for starting a fire.
