Bear in mind that many, maybe the majority, of Canadians with wood stoves are far enough N (in the Boreal, for e.g) where hardwood is quite scarce. I grew up in a house primarily heated by spruce, fir and the occasional birch. The key is moisture content. If it's dry the sap is just good fuel. If you don't believe me just Google it I have no wish to argue.

No doubt , still a handful of my neighbors burning red pine and spruce.

I have plenty of good hardwood out back for years to come.
Rather stick with that .

I agree......had a moose camp north of Geralton and we only had pine/spruce and the odd poplar for firewood.

no issues.....let her dry for 2 seasons before burning and cleaned the pipes yearly.

stayed away from birch

I'll let u guys know how it goes next winter lol.

My house isn't wood heated. Its just for the fireplace in which I would only put a single log in at a time for ambiance.
Chimney was just swepted last year so I think all should be good as long as it's dry.
I don't doubt anyone's claims above, but I think all will be fine as long as it's dry and I play it smart.

Yup! Keep in mind----dry and draft! Make sure you are getting enough draft to minimize smoke coming out the chimney. Some is unavoidable at the start. I like to use softwood to get it going and the chimney heated up fast. Creosote will stick to a cold chimney---not so much to a hot one.

Lots of info on line to explain the science of it---good for a winter's read while watching the fire. Much better than anything on TV!

I use only hardwood except for starting. Keep the stove going for weeks at a time. Been four years since the oil tank was filled and it is still half full. Never had a creosote problem. Burns hot and clean. No heat like wood heat. Cheers 7r

We were out for over 25 hours. Today the wifey finds out both phone lines are dead.

I love Mother Nature.
