I have heard that manzanita burns exceptionally hot, and perhaps because of th redish color, some folks have confused it with madrone. A great freeze in the East Bay in the 1970's resulted in the Regional Park service allowing anybody to cut down the now dead euc's, and that's where I learned chain saws. Campfires learned in Yosemite Valley, during childhood years, from mom and dad, and from Sierra Club books, and from, "To Start a Fire," by Jack London.
