    Thats definatly an awsome score. those two are my two favorite woods to burn - and split most of the time. It isn't too cold here but my F3 just went thru 2 splits of beech and one of cherry mixed together at the same time and it blew us out of the room. i am jealous of all the cherry i have seen you take out in the last few weeks - good job!

    I've got lots of cherry ready for this year but I was disappointed to find that it doesn't sit very high on the BTU chart.
    Not many oaks to cut around here. I'm hunting for downed sugar maple now to add to the ash and white birch I've been splitting for next year.

    Brian, don't discount the cherry because of the charts. It is good hardwood with lots of btu in it. Methinks too many folks discount certain woods because someone put them lower on the charts when in truth they aren't that far apart. Oak is better than cherry, but I don't believe as much as most charts have it. Same for many others. As for me, I'll continue to burn cherry along with ash and maple and elm, etc.

    Cherry seems to dry fast, and the load I had last year was super easy to split by hand.
