The FirewoodNM project is bearing real fruit for 2010!  Alamo Navajo Natural Resources has delivered multiple loads of split dried Pinon Pine firewood to our terrific client in Amarillo Texas.

Firewoodnm will serve to bring firewood harvesting, processing, sales and distribution efforts to a new level of professionalism and success which will in turn encourage and establish new and promising operators from Tribes, communities and other concerned stakeholders.

The pinyon (or piñon) pine group grows in the southwestern United States and in Mexico. The trees yield edible pinyon nuts, which were a staple of the Native Americans, and are still widely eaten. The fragrance of the wood, especially when burned, is unmistakable.

Pinon is a cone-bearing evergreen tree. The scientific name for pinon is "pinus edulis". 

Pinion Firewood

Pinion wood kindling

This tree is found primarily in New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, and Utah. 

Pinon is pronounced and often spelled "pinyon" or "pinion".   These trees were known to the Spanish as pinos pinoneros, or "nut-bearing pine". 

Pinon wood is a favorite of most chiminea owners, for it's pleasant "pine aroma", which helps to repel mosquitoes and other flying insects.

In the Southwest, piñon is a common fireplace and stove wood. It keeps an active flame, produces good heat, and burns well with other woods. 

Re-invented commercial solutions to the issues that confront the nation’s forests will take time to establish, but should ultimately result in a long term, locally based, non boom-or-bust solution. A modern and efficiently run firewood operation, while not romantic in any sense, is the one industry we see which can effectively create markets for large quantities of small and at-risk trees while having an excellent chance of drawing our areas chronically underemployed yet ‘chainsaw skilled’ workers into the solution. The requested equipment will improve utilization and returns on higher grades of trees to be used in Old Wood’s small diameter timber flooring efforts.

Juniper Firewood from the Navajo Country: 
Juniper is sometimes called cedar in New Mexico as well as Sabino or aromatic cedar. Technically Juniperus Monosperma, this is generally the branchy bush-like tree that grows to great diameters but seldom has any real size or straight trunks. It is often targeted as a water-consuming species and as such is removed during aquifer and watershed restoration programs. 
If you have never burned Juniper, I can really recommend it. As a lifelong, outdoor fire-guy, the Juniper to me is a great-smelling wood which brings to mind a desert campfire in the Navajo Country.... sounds corny but I used to fly the great Navajo Nation and camped out a fair bit; I love the smell, look and sound of a juniper campfire. We would gather this wooddead around our campfires and it lights fast and easy. It crackles a fair bit but burns hot and with great colors too. If I had to guess, I’d bet that bugs like the aromatic qualities of Juniper smoke even less than piñon wood.
We can send all juniper, or mixed juniper and piñon. The juniper is twisty and irregular but we will try and pack it as well as we can. You can expect some larger wood mixed with some branchy material. It all has the trademark shaggy bark and red center with a lovely ‘closet wood or hamster cage’ smell even before you burn it.
I’d also guess this is going to be the next thing in firewood… it looks, sounds and burns great with a wonderful aroma. That’s what this is all about, right?
