    Wow, I browsed around the site that is hosted on and saw it said that was about a half million cords of wood.

    That is just a little less then most people on here shoot to have in their backyard! :)

    My question is WHY? What do they plan to with it? We often hear about the Goverment has Oil reserves is this for the wood burning community If we get low on good seasoned wood just go load up??

    And, it's in log form.
    Doesn't qualify for hoarder status unless a new category is established.
    What say you, ye old FH Grand Poobah (aka SO)?

    What is this stash for? Are they keeping it of the market for fear of price disruption?

    I have no idea, the website where I found it didn't say. All I can think is it's a paper mill.

    We need to go back to using hemp and flax for paper. It's far more efficient.

    Now just imagine what upper MI looked like when they had a million cord stacked like that. Paper mill.

    I thought that was the driveway to Hearth.com Members's place (the source of all his splits).

    A half million cords of wood translates to about what, 10 trillion BTUs at 20 MBTU/cord? Holy BTU, Batman...

    Hey, that is about the same as the national debt, if BTUs were a dollar each.
