    If you do a search of old posts, you'll see that this topic comes up pretty often. I think that the consensus is that Box Elder is a mediocre firewood, but if the price is right (free!) then it is worth using. It will never be a good overnight wood, but for a Saturday or Sunday when you're home and able to keep the fire fed, it works pretty well. I've found that it dries out pretty quickly when split to a small or medium size, but larger pieces hold their water at least as much as other "true" maple species.
