    Got a lot of these pines growing in my wood lot, every now and then one will blow down. I'm curious if its worth my time to C/S/S them for burning, or if I should just keep pushing them off to the side. I usually burn hardwoods as the EAB has providing me with plenty of ash.

    Some here use it to help burn down coals or to get a fire going. Some use it for firepit wood.

    Red Pine and Scotch Pine are two different trees but such is the joy of common names. Scotch Pine will have orangish colored bark on the younger wood (think tops and branches). Needles much shorter on Scotch also.

    The tree on the right is a Norway (red) pine as is the tree cut down. Tree on left looks more like a jack pine.

    I see all red pine there(Pinus resinosa). Not the best burning wood, but fine for shoulder seasons, or a fast relight on a cold morning.

    I come across a pine now and then and just mix it in to my oak. Try to spread it out in it.

    Pine is fine. Good mixer wood. Or good to get the first fire going nice and hot before loading for the long haul.
