Larch, Doug fir and lodgepole.  its not much, but its what i have.
At least you get Larch :D I am up to my ears in Lodgepole, and I have access to Doug Fir. I got to burn some white oak this year when I acquired some Oak cribbing and that stuff is great! But, I have thousands of cords of dead, dry, and decent Lodgepole.
Yeah there is definitely not a shortage of dead lodgepole over in Butte, America.

In March I cut about 3 cord of maple on my woodlot for the garage stove then the neighbour next door sold about 25 acres of stumpage on his land.  I snowshoed over to speak to the harvester operator.  Long story short I bought 12 cord of hardwood at an excellent price that was delivered to my yard by the porter driver.  Mostly maple with the odd stick of birch.  Best part was that the harvester cut a trail to my mill yard and the porter driver delivered about a cord of my own hard wood and a cord of my spruce and tamarack to my mill at no charge.  Gotta like that!
So I'm good now for about 5 years for firewood.

When I hunt out of my Aunt and Uncle's cabin up in the Bighorn Mountains in Wyoming, the stove is fed pretty much straight lodgepole pine and I'll be darned if I don't feel warm🤷🏽‍♂️ Lodgepole is as good as hickory, when you don't have any hickory😊
Too many irons in the fire

1 cherry
2 oak
3 Ash

Love the smell of green split cherry. Oak puts out a lot of btus. And ash makes fast btus. All the ash around here is standing dead beetle killed. Burned 9 face cord of ash this season.  Still burning the last of the pile now.

Bad bad woods:

Basswood
Box Elder
Cottonwood

Good woods:

Ash - canít keep up with the EAB kill here / so that will be my go to for the next few years

Oak - got lots, but need to get ahead of the drying time

Hickory - hard splitting, but good coals
