Newbe is excited. What a informative site. Glad to be a member and fellow wood burner. Had a owb for 4 years now, and I have only burned green wood. Been doing some research on this matter and would like some opinions on green vs. seasoned. Green is more available because it is free, and I would have to cut double the amount in one year to allow it to season. So I guess I do not have the ambition to do that unless someone gives me good motivation in the form of education and prior knowledge. I live in Northern Ohio and burn approx. 8-10 cords from Oct. to April. Usually pine in the warmer months and hardwoods including cherry in the cold months. I cut 24'-26" logs then split if to heavy for the wife. I fill once a day in 30 degree plus days and nights then in colder twice a day. Any input would be appreciated.
