Hi Tyke. It's Alder, we grow it, cut it and burn it. Fast growing tree, likes damp ground, really hard but best to season for a year.

Brilliant many thanks for that ??

You're welcome Tyke. It burns well, you won't be disappointed. It's a good tree to grow too, the goldfinches like the seed. We always set new trees when we cut one down and alder actually seeds around so all good
