    That view was from the second story of his house. Could you imagine how massive that pile would be standing next to it? I have seen pics of large scale firewood sellers piles, but this was just Eric, and for his own personal use.

    Well. I'm impressed. I've never seen over-achieving extend to firewood hoarding. I will NEVER post a picture of my puny 2.5 cords again... :red:

    Ah, but this is not hoarding. It all gets used.
    haorders hang onto stuff, but don't use it.
    Gamma, anything is possible, eh?!

    Impressive.
    Better than a gym membership, this pays you back in $$.
    Proves that hard work pays off.
    Great pics.
    If you had a normal winter, how much do yo go thru per season?

    I miss Eric's posts. And I also remember seeing his wood stacks then wondering why folks thought I had so much wood....

    It is satisfying indeed. I've been working on my 130 acre woodlot for 16 years now. The 10 acre pine stands that I thinned 10 and 15 years ago, now are stocked with straight well spaced pines and oak and maple seedlings are shooting up in between. They are getting 20 to 30 feet in some cases, straight and tall with the pine canopy naturally pruning all the lower branches. There are going to be some nice oaks in those stands in a couple generations, I hope whoever is around here then appreciates it. I cut about 10 cords of oak so far since the end of deer season just thinning the oak stands from leaners, scarred butts, etc. I had a so called improvement harvest done 12 years ago and they were not too careful. Nothing like being retired and spending your days in the woods!
