Pinecones
[Return to Topics]

I live on two acres in rural Colorado. Lots of pine trees. And this year they produced a bumper crop of cones. Each time I stumble over one (too frequently) I wonder about the feasability of using them as fuel in my wood-burning stove.

Any thoughts/comments?

Pine cones were sometimes used as kindling mix with twigs in kitchen stove, split wood placed on top. RN

I never heard of anybody trying it, but wouldn't it be about like burning pine logs, too much sap and creasote in the chimney?
