Compared to what? Hauling it to a landfill? Yah-sure it's good, once cut, split, seasoned, dried.

If this is anything like Brazilian Pepper, a nasty exotic in Florida, it will burn OK but there is a lot of sap in the wood when it is green and not much left once it dries out. It is light and burns fast. Some folks are sensitive to the sap and those people also have problems with the smoke.

No California Pepper Tree is quite different from the Brazilian. CA Pepper is soft, burns fast but clean when dried.

Seeing as how he posted this ten years ago, I'm guessing it's either cured or has died of its original malady!
