People everywhere have a precise evaluation of firewood, knowing which species and parts of trees are the best for specific purposes — for roasting, simmering, brewing, quick heat, a fire to warm oneself, etc. There is extensive technical knowledge among the local collectors and users concerning the species indigenous to the region and their cooking, heating, medicinal and other qualities, passed down from one generation of users to another.
