Is cottonwood good for firewood? How well does it burn? I have some sitting around and have been considering using it this winter. Is it just going to be a waste of my time trying to use it as firewood?
Yes, cotton balls make great fire starters. They can either be dry or soaked in petroleum jelly. The former will burn for about 20 seconds whereas the latter can burn up to 5 minutes. Nonetheless, I am unsure if this can work during winter.
