"In New England, those who heat with wood typically stay away from poplar and all the softwoods (fir, spruce, pine, larch). Apple, black birch, ironwood, and hickory deliver the most BTUs, apparently, but those varieties are not especially abundant…"

"Good poem, Don. Right now, I'm burning a lot of catalpa and willow. It's almost like burning paper, it's so soft. But, I had those 2 trees cut down 20 months ago and hated to just throw the wood away. I have a list of the best to…"

"Thanks, Don! I like mythology like this. We have Sambucus Nigra here, and it would not be easy to hang yourself from it; it branches out at ground level and hardly ever makes a strong trunk."

"Don, thanks for the information on Elder trees and the Irish mythology! Here are a few more tales of the Elder tree and its mischief making qualities.  The feared elder has its place on the farm"

Don commented on Richard C Brown's group learnerscoffeeshack
"Some varieties of elder may give off a poisonous smoke.  Mexican elder, found in the American South, contains a natural form of cyanide. Breathing the smoke can cause cyanide poisoning. As the poem suggests, there is a old folk belief that…"

"Thank you for the information, Don. I will share it with Larry.  I'm glad you have a lawn tractor, a necessary item with acrage and gathering wood for the winter. "

Plinius commented on Richard C Brown's group learnerscoffeeshack
"Nice poem, Don! Does anyone understand the warning against elder tree? It's not poisonous, so it must be a myth. Spud, we must just keep on dreaming of our earthships, and in the meantime go on with the projects that fit our possibilities.…"

"It seems to me that you're vulnerable from the moment you can't handle all that wood anymore, doesn't that worry you? I always dreamt of building and  living in an earth ship, but ill health has taken the possibility away.  "

Don commented on Richard C Brown's group learnerscoffeeshack
"Ash is an excellent, fast-growing tree in this climate, the last to leaf out in the spring and the first to lose its leaves in the fall--and yet it does very well.  It splits well, too. We use a lot of it.  As the rhyme goes:Ash dry or ash…"

How are you doing? Always enjoy hearing from you.

At least I'm now sleeping. I don't think there's much we can do to fight this insidious cult thing. It doesn't affect me directly, so I stay on the sidelines. I suppose the one thing to do to help is what you did--send the message out on twitter, facebook, etc. That's a positive. I'm requesting you be a "friend", okay?

No apology necessary!  Spread the word as much and as far as you can. I might check out the "Useless without Coffee" group you're in. Sounds interesting.
