    If I see it I'll grab it. Burning pine and cedar courtesy of Sandy that is burning nicely after only about a year CSS. Some as we speak.

    We use a splitter. It does split better after it sits for a bit, when it's fresh it's a sticky mess. It still splits into sort of odd shapes even later, but it's better if the saps run out a bit. We got a bunch of beetle kill that split pretty nice!

    If you go with kiln dried, buy it when you are ready to burn it and cover it well. Then make it last by mixing it with the less than perfect wood from your stacks.

    I'm burning some White Pine tonight, fell last February in our yard, was probably about 80' tall, and about .16" at the stump/ 10 Months later, and it's 15%, burns hot as paper, no coals and tons of ash. Love the heat, but hate having to reload every 90 minutes. It seemed to actually split easier when it was frozen solid. I originally split this stuff huge, because it was destined for the firepit this summer, but it's happily burning in the stove tonight!
