Elm is tough wood, especially trunk chunks

New Englanders favor maple, beech or ash

Jim agrees about the toughness of elm wood. He says that the larger limb wood from this tree has been agreeable to splitting, but the large chunks from the trunk have taken some muscle. Fortunately Jim enjoys "working up" a wood supply!

In New England our favorite firewood was maple, beech or ash. -Sharon
