Well, I have been working on getting as much wood split and stacked as possible this year so that it can season. My son and I just started splitting wood about three months ago. We had a lot of trees that were down in the yard that just needed to be cut, split and stacked. Currently we have about 4 1/2 to 5 cords stacked in our yard (pics) and then another 2 cords at a neighbors house. Right now we have yellow birch, red maple, red oak, cherry, and hemlock. Only about 2 cords are dry (primarily yellow birch and some maple) so I might end up having to purchase some wood to get me through this winter. I'm thankful that we have been able to put up approximately 7 cords in about three months . I think if we get another 3 or 4 cords cut, split and stacked in the next few months that should put us about three years ahead.
