Well I’m going to use what is growing in my woods regardless of what it is. As long as the material is of suitable straightness and proper diameters. I have red oak, poplar, sumac, chery, maple and some scrub I never identifed, maybe birch one or two. Willow would be nice but I have none. One thing about this is,…it uses a lot, I mean a really lot of branches.

Edit: I have to take that back. I’m not going to use whats in my woods, it’s all a bunch of bent crappy looking stuff only suitable for camp fires. The woods were logged 2 summers ago and I was hoping for a lot of young saplings, but they just didn’t come in yet. I’m going to see if I can cut some local bamboo thickets.
