OK - I came across a local CL ad for some short trunk sections (2-4') and stumps. Stumps are out of the ground, and are Oak/SB Hickory. Pros: Free Not far from home high density - plenty of Btus decent amount of volume (prob. 2-3 cords worth) Free Cons: Heavy Hard to maneuver Hard to split Cutting risks (stones and other chain killers) Longer time to season/dry Sounds to me like it is not worth considering. Any other perspectives?
