Deciduous Trees

Most deciduous trees are hardwoods with broad leaves which are shed in the fall. These trees remain dormant during the winter and they provide the best woods for a fire. Hardwoods burn clean and slowly and leave lots of good hot coals.

For a handy reference to the best-known hardwood and softwood trees, following is a compiled list showing the general areas in the United States where they may be found.
