Hi, I recently took down ~10 trees on my property and cut them to length. I also found a used Lopi Freedom insert that I will have installed this summer. I have been lurking here for a while, and have exhausted my skills with the search engine. I plan to but a Ryobi elec splitter that seem well reviewed here. My 2 questions are: 1. When you load a log and split it, will it split into numerous pieces like camp sites sell, or just in half? 2. Is their a prefered log width for burning? I have lots of logs near the tree tops that are ~ 6 inches, do I even bother to split those? Is there a rule of thumb for my stove size (takes 24" long logs) that says 'always split a log over x inches wide'? Thanks guys (and gals).
