Is pine wood toxin in a fireplace?
Is it toxic? No- no more than any other wood- but pine will burn very quickly, and produce high levels of creosote in the chimney.
depends if it is fresh

Pine burns faster than hard wood, and leaves almost no coals so it's less heat efficient. Pine creates more sparks than hard wood so a good fireplace screen is essential and b…e aware that more sparks may ignite kreasote build-up in your chimney. On the plus side, cured pine usually has a brighter flame than hard wood and is prettier in your fire. Also pine is more likely to create the crackling fire sound that people enjoy. Probably your best bet is to use two pieces of hard wood and one piece of pine, and be aware that you will probably want to add one or two additional pine pieces before the hard wood burns away.
It is actually a mixture between the great southern oak species andthe atlantic polar bear species.The atlantic polar bear used toclimb this particular tree and therefore the …name of the tree
Pine can be used but it doesn't burn clean. It contains large amounts of tars and over time will leave a heavy creosote buildup. It is a good burning wood though. I have used …it many times. It also tends to "pop" explode so be sure to have a safety screen to keep the embers from flying on you or your floor.
No. Pine is not a hardwood. It should not be burned in a fireplace or wood stove because the flammable resins in the wood will build up in the chimney and could ignite causing… a chimney fire.
Pine is considered a softwood.
outside, it's free -.-
Hardwoods are the best wood for fireplaces as they burn much longer than pine does. Ash, Oak, Maple, Birch, Beech, and Walnut are all good wood to burn producing med-high he…at and little smoke and sparks. Cherry while it does not burn as well as some of the other hardwoods -it does produce a wonderful aroma. They need to be seasoned for at least a year before burning.
Pine will make great kindling- to light the fire. However, it will burn very quickly, produce few coals for long lasting heat, and produces a lot of creosote that will need to… be cleaned from your chimney. It would be a good idea to keep a little dry pine for kindling, but find a good hardwood such as oak, ash, or hickory for your main fuel wood.
Birch is excellent fireplace wood.
Wood fireplaces would have evolved from the beginning of human civilization. Both Indians and Eskimos incorporated some kind of venting in their dwellings, although perhaps no…t an advanced chimney. See Wikipedia for some history milestones.
There are a number of websites that offer information on the best wood for heating. Generally, hardwoods such as Ash, Oak, and Hickory will be the very best. Softwoods such as… pine and fir will have low heat values, burn up quickly, and produce a lot of creosote (but makes good kindling) There are a few toxic woods I would NOT burn, including poison oak, sumac, and treated lumber scrap. Treated lumber (may be called CCA, Tanalised, salt treated, or "green wood") is treated with heavy metals to keep bugs and fungus from destroying it.
pine is not good ans it is a softwood and will burn too fast and coat the flue with creosote.
