- Please help me identify this firewood
Been advertised to me as hardwood with 0% moisture.
Interested to know what wood it is.

Zero percent moisture!? impressive!Posted 3 years ago
Yeah zero percent is what the seller said!Posted 3 years ago
Not Sycamore I don’t think. Looks more like some sort of LimePosted 3 years ago
Nothing wrong with Sycamore if that’s what it is. I’ve heated my house with it for the last 5 years and I’ve got enough for the next four years in the garden.Posted 3 years ago
Not sycamore, that would be far whiter, smoother and closer grained. Nothing wrong with burning sycamore if it’s not too old.
A poplar or lime? Can see the start of a sucker on the bark side.
In one of the pictures it looks shattered as much as split, so either very old or was standing dead/diseased tree.
Zero percent moisture would be charcoal.
Not all hardwood is good and not all softwood is bad.Posted 3 years ago
Looks like conifer to me. If its a hardwood it should have a bit of weight to it. That is likely to burn really quick. I wouldnt buy it!Posted 3 years ago
Sycamore is awesome.
0% my arse. What timber says.Posted 3 years ago
from the ring width, its a fast grown timber – from the outside it looks like debarked hardwood. Someone said poplar – i’t may be. If it is it may burn quick but cool. 20% moisture content is well dried firewood, so someones talking crap.Posted 3 years ago
Poplar or some sort of birch would be my guess.Posted 3 years ago
