I know in the UK when I've had a woodburner or fire they are specific as to what woods you should burn as some are not suitable and can leave lots of tar behind and clog up the chimney etc as well as being smokey or some such. I know Yew is a no no over here along with things like evergreens like leylandii as they spit really badly and burn almost too well and leave an awful amount of tar behind. I'd not risk using that even in a woodburner in case a spark gets out and lights.
I did find one link about 'Australia pepper tree' and it lists as being the Californian pepper, in which case it would appear to be fine to use on BBQ or outside but people should be wary using inside due to it smoking badly. If that is your tree then :)
Wouldn't have a clue what sort of pepper tree but am presuming it's the one thats ok to burn....otherwise the arborist wouldn't have recommended selling? But hey, what do i know, i've only been here since Jan, lol. wasn't trying to get rid cos it's dodgy...just far to busy at mo to split into logs for re-sale so thought i'd offer other poms before sticking it on gumtree.
