9 cords is big work. Congrats! I dropped, bucked, cut, mostly split and started stacking two cords this weekend. I figure I will work on the stacking as the weather allows. I won't lie, that was two big days for me. I took a few picts that I'll try to add tomorrow.
Did you take a picts of the nine cords as you went?
How long does 9 cord last?
That my friend is impressive. The oak I took down that was 7 cord and it took a lot longer than that.
I bet the Blue OX did all the work.
This is Bigg_Redd we're talkin' about here. After being around here a while you'll find out he dont do pics.
Which is OK. (even though most of us like to see them)
Bigg_Red.......Big Bad Red..........................( sung in my lowest baratone voice )
Less than 1 year - I go through about 4 per year and my parents go through about 8.
Is this from the 30 cord stack of logs?
That's 9+ cord cut, (mostly) split, hauled and (mostly) stacked.
Full disclosure - Might be closer to 10 cord (I lost count of loads) but I was cutting on machine piled logs
Yes. Looks like I'll be missing out on the better part of it. SadFace.
Damn. 30 cord would last me 8-10 years.
That's still 9 cords you didn't have to drag out of the woods.
9 Cords, Holy Chinook Redd..................... it will take me the first half of the summer to CSS that much!
Talk, talk, talk! I don't SEE no cords! I can't hate sompun what ain't thar!
Hating?...nahhh. 9+ cords = Respect/Cheers!. But post some pics of all that wood and I'd be jealous for sure!
I almost did the same thing but mine was 3 cords in 9 weekends......
Dyslexia takes care of that problem real quick.
Wait,,,,,,,,, you have 30 cord of logs? Does this mean you had to pay for your firewood?
Nine plus cords in 3 weekends is a nice score and a chitload of work,been there done that as I am still a machine when it comes to working in wood. BR you will reap the fruits of your labor and get way ahead of the game and they'll be no beechin and moanin half way through winter,cuz you won't be running low on wood.PS I still like pics.
Well if you dont need pics.... I did 9.125 cords in 2.975 weekends.
Beat that big redd
BR, just curious about how many folks are on your crew? I only had one of sons with me last weekend for my two cords, and if I had both boys (and a litttle more time) I prob could have hauled in 3 cords. I guess if there were 3 or 4 or 5 guys working 3 cords wouldn't seem so big. But even with a a good crew, you did it 3 weeks in a row - thats impressive.
BTW, what kind of trees are you getting into? I've been working a fence row of mulberry, and it seems like cutting and stacking the crown (there is a lot of it!) takes the longest time.
Mulberry is primo fuel,but you do deal with lots of brush especially its grown in the open or along fence rows.Worth the effort though IMO.
My crew is me and my old man (who is fat and old and tired and of limited energy). Getting 1.3-1.5 cord in the truck isn't too tough when you can back right up to the log pile - no falling, limbing, or brush. Also, it was more like 10 cord, and 2 of those 3 weekends included Monday as well.
I've been cutting up Bigleaf Maple. It's not the best firewood but it's better than the Alder I've been burning most of this winter.
