Winter is quickly approaching so keep warm with some great Tamarack ( also known as Larch) firewood!|
Selling XL bags filled with Tamarack (also known as Larch). The bags weigh roughly 100 lbs and the wood is ready to burn!
The tamarack was cut down last summer and is well seasoned for the fireplace! Moisture levels as shown in pictures vary from 14 to 19% which is ideal for burning :)
So why should Tamarack be concidered? It is regarded by many as some of the best firewood we can get here in Alberta! It generates a high heat ( comparible to Birch ) and gives the snap and crackle as you would with a wood such pine and is resistant to rot like Cedar! . Burns slow, and hot with little ash left over.
Many people enjoy the ambience it creates while doing a great job heating the home as well. It is also used in the pulp mills which is why it is not as readily available such as Birch for firewood
Does Tamarack create Creosote in my Chimney? Any firewood that is used as fuel will create a certain amount of creosote when burned. What is crucial is that the wood you're using is dry and seasoned. The more moisture content in the wood causing more smoke causes creosote, as it creates more smoke which sticks to the chimney flue. Below is a link from Manitoba ( which has a lot more tamarack available in the province than Alberta )
The following links Below are heat charts for firewood. Tamarack is located under the Softwood catagory but burns just as hot as Birch ( charts indicate Tamarack is hotter)
