    I have a bunch of Silver Maple that I'm in the process of dealing with right now. I have a heaping pile(cord or more I'd guess) of limb type wood in the 2-6 inch range that I'd rather not deal with. Most of it needs to be cut to length and I'd rather not mess with it. If anyone in the Oakland County area(Oxford) is interested shoot me a pm.

    Thanks,

    Rick

    I would Dennis ( great wood for the evaporator) but with the 3/4 ton truck getting 12-14 mpg it just isn't worth it!

    Sure wish you were closer rd, that small stuff is perfect for burning in the evaporator. :(

    30 Miles , I can haul about 1/2 a cord at a time and that is 3 gallons of gas +time for wood that I should be able to burn this winter. so about $24.00 a cord, yea its worth it. If it is a cord ill have 3 cords that should be ready for this winter, a mix of ash, elm, and Maple. I need to start looking for some higher btu woods to stockpile for the next couple of years. Thanks It is appreciated.

    Mmmmmm Im feeling warm already, there was more than he estimated, and it will top me off for 13/14 and start me on 14/15
    Hoping the homemade kiln works for seasoning oak in one summer so I have some High BTU wood for the coldest days overnights. I plan on setting up about 1 full cord that way and seeing how it works.


    Not done getting it all yet but started! Thanks Rick

    No problem, I'm happy to see it go to a forum member. It was nice meeting you, it's always fun to put a face with the name.

    For sure, that Silver should be plenty dry. I just stacked a little over a cord at my SIL's in the past few days...She's about set but like you, I'd like to get some Oak stacked there, too. She's got several dead ones, so I'm hoping the tops will be dry enough to make it by this fall...
