Black Walnut for wood stove?

I just bought a house that has a wood burner in the basement for primary heating. I had a pickup truck load of wood delivered last week which worked out well. I just got a text from the guy saying he has two cords of Black Walnut he'll deliver tomorrow if I'm interested.

My question, is this a good wood for a wood stove? Does it burn good, worth $125/cord?

yes, it's good to burn.

pricing depends on the area.

for reference here is a chart with approximate BTU's per cord.

Make sure you price match with this guy

Valley Firewood, LLC

He also does good exterior demolition work. So if you plan on remodeling the exterior of your house he will get you started for free. And bonus he will put sawdust down on your driveway where his truck leaks without you even asking him to.

I have been following the demo work of this guy, just wish he wasn't so far from me. Looking to do some work to my attached garage, and his truck would make short work of the hard part.

He 'claims' full cords, which is a little skeptical considering the price.

That's almost half price for here even. I'd tell him not to stop and would leave a case of beer and a check at the end of each day.

From experience, you shouldn't plan to "shut down" a stove full of black walnut... At least not green wood.

We burn it mixed with oak or hickory. It doesn't burn nearly as clean as the other two if you've got the air choked down on the stove. In my experience any way.

I checked with him, and he says it's two full cords for $250.

I have enough wood to get by through spring, so if it is a bit green I would hope it would be good and dry for next winter. I have been reading about some saying its a bitter harder to even get started, but that could be green and not seasoned at all.

IMOP that stuff isn't dried/cured till the second year.

My bet is that cord is still green, like a few months or less.
