I always see "Expert Advice Firewood Tips" in the almanac but it's geared towards the eastern side of the US. How about some recomendation on wood on the western side?

What kind of "tips"? Like you

What kind of "tips"? Like you get more heat out of a piece if it's split? I heat with wood here in the Pacific North West. Like to burn hardwood most.

Over here

We burn a lot of fruit wood, mostly apple. The heat is good but the smell is heavenly, about the only time you don't mind a smokey stack. As this district is the heart of fruit growing, folk are always grubbing out old trees and will actually pay to have them taken away.
I'll float some over to you YB.
