Choosing Great Wood for Campfires

Whether you'€™re building a campfire for heat, for cooking, or simply to be the welcoming core of your weekend campsite, just any old wood isn't going to do. You want a fire that will light quickly, burn with little smoke, put out good heat, and last for a long time. Firewood that'€™s not seasoned long enough, or too long, or under improper conditions, will do none of these things.
