Was heading to a state park today that gives free passes to cut ground wood downed during last winters ice storm. Stopped by my construction site on the way to scrounge and was delited to see they'd cleared a new lot and made a massive pile of good logs for me (lady in the sales office says help yourself). Problem is - this stuff was just cut. It's so green and heavy with sap. It feels like twice the work. Cherry and some other lighter color wood that looks like locust. I took 2 truck loads. One had bark that dripped sap that looked just like white paint. If I split this now - will it burn this winter? or am I gonna need it to wait for 10/11. Should I pass on this and head for the state park where the downed wood will not be full of sap? I hate to let the construction site sit because it won't last long. Another guy came by as I was cutting and eye balled things.
