Where to find hard wood trees in the United States.

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