Happy Thanksgiving

I know some woods are not good or safe for the fireplace, I was hoping that someone could tell me if it’s OK to burn hackberry or chinaberry in the fireplace?

I have a bunch of non usable hackberry and a lot of not so desirable chinaberry that is set for landfill but with winter coming I was wondering if I might just burn it in the fireplace?

Thanks

I have burned both in our fireplace and wood stove with no problems. You should be fine.

Happy Thanks Giving to you!

With the flue open the smoke and fumes should go up the chimney? Don’t know your set up , is there an insert? Might want to Goggle for that information? Lots of health info online.

Speaking of fire and down south. Had my first smoked turkey when I moved to Arkansas many years ago. This Chicago boy who’d been in many places in the world never had smoked turkey (hickory) After eating the smoked turkey I said the Ham was great!

i don’t think they would be a problems burning them. To be sure, check them out on the Wood Database for toxicity. I know chinaberry is not a problem.

Thanks everyone, my main concern was that if either would leave a residue buildup in the chimney.
