Hey there, fellow permies.
I was planning out hugelkultur bed today, and thought I'd share two great resources I've been using with you folks here.

This is a list of trees with known allelopathy to avoid.
http://warnell.forestry.uga.edu/SERVICE/LIBRARY/index.php3?docID=160&docHistory%5B%5D=2
Anything in the "slightly" category should be fine, but even a little moderate or strongest could work.
geoff lawton has said in an interview having some allelopathic woods mixed in can lead to more diverse soil life.
I like that they cite sources.


This site is one I used more as a woodworker, but could be useful in hugelkultur.
http://www.wood-database.com/
It has information on things like hardness, rot resistance, toxicity to people, density of different woods.

I hope someone finds use from them.
 
I agree. Here's the link: https://richsoil.com/wood-heat.jsp
