I have a green house that was professionally made. It is contructed from wood and has about 12 windows and has a clear plastic roof. I have six of...
I would pass if you are ahead. It splits like a bear, burns up real fast and leaves lots of ashes.
Bark looks like red but leaf looks like white oak.
Hard maple no, red maple yes.
Chestnut oak is in my top three favorite dead of winter firewoods next to locust and black birch. Burns so good smells so good and just burns like a...
From what I heard its just a bit below sugar maple. I never burned either but would love to.
Paper bark=1 year after split and stacked
Black birch=18 months after spit and stacked.
Beech is excellent. As good as oak however the splitting is a nightmare even with hydraulics. Never had one of those easy to split beeches.
If you season oak for 4+ years, how do wood pallets hold up? I would assume that you would have some major rot issues at that time.
What type of birch?
Soft maple is excellent with the locust to really get it going.
Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius are fire signs. I am a sag which explains my addiction. What sign are you?
Nice score. Looks like some nice red oak.
Black gum. That is my vote!
Yeah, try hefting green red oak. Twice as heavy as green BL.
Yeah that is BL 100%.
Yes. If it was standing dead, it might be ready for the stove this year. It does not look like it was standing dead for a very long time being that...
I have burned one year BL and it sucks. Constantly fiddling with the air and stalling the cat. It is so trouble free after two years.
Yeah, Lancaster is quite affuent meaning great restaruants and kraft beers. Restaurants-Gibraltier, Fenz, Arts hotel, The log cabin, and Characters...
I don't get the whole BL is hard to light thing. If I want I can burn straight loads with no problems at all. My stash is well seasoned however.
Nice. What are in your stacks? I get what is on my property. I have no ash. Do we have ash in our neck of the woods? And hedge? Have you seen...
That is a beautiful score. Nothing like a 50/50 load of black locust and black birch.
That is not crazy at all. That is money in the bank bro. I am in Quarryville where are you at?
19/20 just sounds plain wierd. Time flies by so quickly. Next thing you know we will be working on our 39/40 stacks.
I think all dense woods i.e. sugar maple, black locust, black birch, beech, oak, hedge, and hickory all benefit from a minimum of 2 years.
