The firewood is horrible, burns poorly, smolders excessively, hard to light, doesn't sustain flaming, leads to excessive creosote buildup in chimney. You will be sorely disappointed if you buy this firewood, as I was, especially if you are burning in a wood stove or are burning for heat as opposed to ambience. I seriously have never been so disappointed or frustrated. I've gone through a 1/4 of a cord and will not burn any more as I am afraid of what it's doing to my chimney. Whatever you do, do NOT buy your firewood from Prianti. A word to the wise: you will be disappointed and frustrated with this wood not to mention putting yourself at risk for a chimney fire due to creosote buildup. Buyer beware.
