Burning Characteristics of Wood

Here's a pretty good site with information on the burning characteristics of different types of wood.

It lists wood from almost 50 different species of trees, and includes information about green and dry weight per cord, BTUs per cord, percent of ash, ease of splitting, smoke, sparks, coals, fragrance, and overall quality.

I'd reprint the chart here, but the site is copyrighted. Here's the link:
