Hi Guys,

I have done a quick search on the tinterweb and our site and can't find exactly what I am looking for. So I wonder some members can help.

I am only really interested in the more 'common' UK woodland trees and I am wondering which woods are food safe (FS) (ie for spoons or cups) and which woods are safe to cook directly (CD) over or in either case toxic (TX). I suppose there might even be a difference between seasoned and not seasoned, so a little note might note go amiss.

So...here is my list - can anyone who knows for sure copy and annotate and we might get to a full list.

Alder
Apple
Ash
Aspen (UK ?)
Beech
Birch (FS) (CD)
Blackthorn
Cedar
Cherry
Chestnut
Douglas Fir
Elder
Elm
Field Maple
Fir
Hawthorn
Hazel
Holly
Hornbeam
Horse Chestnut
Larch
Lime
Norway Maple
Oak
Pear
Pine (?)
Poplar
Rowan
Spruce (?)
Sweet Chestnut
Sycamore
Walnut
Whitebeam
Willow
Yew
Missing Any?
