I scrounged a trailer full last year and after burning it I won't make that mistake again.
That sounds logical but would take away most of the fun of scrounging.
Sounds like a good plan except for the willow part. I would take pine over willow even if the willow was dropped off for free, the stuff I had last...
Wow looking at that log weight chart makes me wonder how I haven't slipped a disc or done other long term damage to my back. I've dead lifted rounds...
Not to correct you but you should know for future identification. It's the other way around, silver maple has narrow lobed leaves and hard maple has...
I'm not from your area I live 10 hours north of you but I have visited Pigeon Forge Gatlinburg many times and wished I could move down there.
You say you bought a couple of cords to try for this year, I would suggest you add a couple more to your order for next year and try for a discount...
Wow that's a great deal I've probably spent a couple hundred on gas "scrounging" this year, but I had fun doing it. Lol
Wow log 47, I don't recall seeing if you already posted it but how many cords are you getting out of it and how much did it cost you.
There's so much dead ash in Southern Ontario its sad to see them go, but on the other hand I've got so much of it I've been mixing it with my...
That would work great.
Use screws through large washers directly into the lower splits to hold the tarps down.
Norway smells sweet to me, so something is definitely wrong with that wood.
Doesn't look like any of the Norway I get around here, even the smaller limbs have an ash like bark pattern. There are over a hundred maple varieties...
It looks like a ash but every ash I've gotten the last 5 or so years has the EAB trails on every round under the bark. Unless the emerald ash borer...
you made the right decision.
yes it should, heres some of mine at 18 months. I bent the tip of one of the pins, Norway is definitely hard maple.
Bring it on!
LOL, I agree.
Then I'd say it's silver, the red I have seems to have a darker heartwood.
Can you take a closer pic of those leaves?
Norway maple, take a wiff of a fresh split should smell a little sweet.
Wow 14* I think we're about a month or more away from that around here.
nice score and you saved all those BTU's from the chipper/compost pile.
Wolf spiders are harmless, just wear some gloves and smack a couple splits together before you take them in the house.
very nice Dave I'm envious.
You sure hit the btu jackpot in that load.
You could be right and Im not sure if Ive ever had any pignut but Ive had norway almost every year for the past 20. I found this image from another...
it looks like Norway maple to me.
