Hackberry for firewood

Can the wood from a Hackberry tree be used for firewood?

Backyard Expert - Cathy Nordstrum

Yes, it's really quite a good quality firewood. Among its attributes are ease of splitting, low smoke and sparks, and good quality coals. Remember to use dry wood for best performance of all hardwoods.
