That's what I do treefarmer - I cut all my firewood from the junk trees in my bottoms: willow, birch, box elder, iron wood, elder? (looks like elder - gets about 6"-8" across and dies). I'll also thin, but not eradicate ash & maple. Plus I take any crowded, broken, leaning, or otherwise damaged trees regardless of species.

If you heat with wood, you cut enough that you can see a difference in your woods in just a few years. Of course, heating with these trees means you have to use more of them.
