Piñon pine is a favorite of most chiminea or fireplace users for its pleasant 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 much longer than other softwoods.
Piñon is a very dense pine species that originates primarily from the high desert of the American Southwest. A small, gnarly, shrubby tree, piñon has been coveted for centuries for its high heat output and its pleasant smell. It burns hot with little popping, which makes it perfect for your patio or winter fireplace.
At Old Wood, we process our piñon in multiple lengths to best suit our clients’ needs. Our chiminea wood is typically cut 12” long, whereas our fireplace or fuel wood is 16-18” long. It can be sold in bundles or pallets, by the truckload or individual unit. We shop our freight carefully to make sure our clients get the cheapest trucking possible.
Piñon and One-Seed Juniper both smell wonderful when burned. Their natural aroma has been a part of ritual among Native American tribes since time immemorial. Today, Old Wood LLC works with tribes, small New Mexican companies and great private ranchers to bring you USDA compliant, heat- treated firewood that will enhance your every outdoor or indoor fire experience. Like red or white wine, burned indoors or out, everyone will have a preference but all will agree, this is: “Wood Worth the Burning.”
