Apple wood is very popular for burning but unfortunately it can be hard to find in most places. Apple firewood is a hot burning hardwood that is loved for its sweet aroma when it burns. It is great for outdoor fires because of it’s fragrance as well as for cooking and smoking foods. It is a clean burning wood with low smoke.
Apple firewood is rare in North America because it does not grow native in any of our forests the way most common types of firewood here do. Apple wood is usually only abundant where apples are commercially grown. When old apple trees in an orchard are replaced, the old ones are sometimes cut into firewood. Except for the occasional apple tree from someone’s yard, commercial orchards are the only major source of apple wood.
Much of of this wood is used for making chips and chunks for smoking wood. Apple wood for sale in these forms are not hard to find in stores and online. Apple wood is also good for making furniture. In most cases apple wood is too rare and valuable to cut into bulk firewood.
