Burning tree bark
I have been splitting logs this summer and have a pile of tree bark. Most of it just kind of fell off. If I was to burn the bark in my fireplace, (I have a fireplace w/insert) I would guess I need to season it? Does it season faster then normal wood? Can I burn it this winter? How do i dry it out and store it? A friend of mine just puts his in a large barrel but it does not seem like it would get proper air circulation to season well. I also heard that the bark has a higher concentration of creasole. Is this true? Any and all info on this subject would be appreciated.
