Seattle area, Pacific Northwest; neighbor cut down an overgrown conifer/evergreen, offered "free firewood" chunks, which are the most wonderfully aromatic wood I've come across; pix attached; believe the tree was the bushy, more upright -- not the droopy one; any idea what kind of firewood I have now to enjoy next season?

Much appreciated.

Looks like a cedar from the photos, but a close of the foliage would have made a better identification.
In any case cedars are high in resin and will burn hot like fir and pine! Be ok for outdoor fires, but not very good for indoor fireplaces.
