I've got a bunch of spruce and fir on my property. Price of softwood is in the crapper commercially. this wood needs to be cut soon, getting old. How log would i expect this stuff to dry once cut and split? I have a very open and dry area in which to stack it. Just an old pain in the azz easterner, that is used to burning rock maple. I plan on putting a cord or two up and see how I like it. got a good 15 acrs of plantation growth, easy to get to. My signature shows what I have for equipment.
