    Default Birch trees

    I have 3 or 4 small birch trees that I have to take down because they are threatening my electric service when it snows. I know from burning birch for heat in the past that it is a light wood that burns very quickly. The trees are big enough to get a few decent size splits so I'll add them to the wood pile and after they season I'll use them on a cook and post the results to see if using it is worthwhile.

    I have heard opinions on both side of cooknf w/ birch. Seems like a close relative to alder. If so, it couldn't be too bad.
