Finally found a chart with red maple listed. Its a pretty low on the btu charts at 18.7 million per cord....
I've got almost a cord. Never burned this stuff before. It is the hardest wood I've ever split, the grain of the wood is twisted. It also seemed...
Don't know Maples very well, possibly Poplar. I don't know. Help appreciated.
Wasnt aware of that. Seems like here in the midwest we should be able to get the tempature up to 150, but we have got high humidity also. Last year...
Tested it today and the bigger splits were 16 to 20% good to go. It was really kind of surprising because the wood was stacked where it caught a lot...
Do you remember your coals popping like crazy when you open the door? I had some last year to do that, but it wasn't shagbark, it was pignut.
I better go check my stacks I had some I planned on burning after seasoning about 11/2 years.
How do you make a home made felling wedge? Are the wooden ones as good as plastic? I've never used one but I think its time I start.
Thats a lot different than what they look like here in Southern Illinois. This is a big one! these trees in the background are some pretty good size...
What kind of snakes? Hate snakes!
I like that bench.
I've done it. They were $20 a bundle, and that bundle was almost a cord. This stuff was dirt cheap. It burns great, but they left a lot of ash in the...
Thanks for all the replies. Stacking tomorrow.
Here is whats strange, it had these kind of leaves on top of the tree.
These kind of leaves at he base.
Here are the splits....
Yes standing dead oak.
It was the other half of this sucker. Don't know why I did it. I knew that the thing was going to launch when I put it in the splitter. Just like an...
This thing is surrounded by walnut trees. Thanks for the advise on the leaves I'll check that out.
Neighbors got any ASH? looks like you could watch their ASH too.
The bark near the base of the tree was flaking, and rounded lobes on the leaves had me thinking white oak. Better pics of the tree would have helped.
I'm going to leave another year. To much dead stuff laying around to cut it down so soon.
It has leaves lower in the tree, but the top has no leaves. Is it dying? Don't want to cut down a White Oak if there is a chance it might make it....
These darn bushes with red berries are taking over.
the Ash trees are dead and it doesn't take long for these bushes to take over. mowing the fields...
First thing I would do is move the splitter to the shade then hunt bucket and something to drink.
This is a dead standing tree with no leaves and I'm not very good with bark ID.
What is it?
Better turn that birch upside down and let the water run out.
Seems like the humidity level is a little lower than usual here. We have a dead crunchy yard here also 13" shy of normal rainfall for the year. Corn...
I have noticed a lot of big black ants in some of the dead wood on this property.
Thanks for the information. I've never had to deal with a tree with termites. Hope they don't go to another tree.
Don't know why i didn't think about termites. Is there a way to kill the termites before dragging this thing home for firewood?
I found this tree in my woods today DEAD! I believe it is a pignut or bitternut hickory. Looking at the base of the tree it looks like sawdust is...
