    Are they good sized? Would be nice to have some nice sized splits. I have a small amount seasoning till next year, see how it burns and smells. There's a bunch at the street by me I plan on getting before the town comes.

    Cherry is a good one. Easier splitting and seasoned in one year. While it is no Black Locust, it is not a weed in my book.

    Is there some reason you consider this as weeds?

    Here's my cherrys I'm gonna start working on,spent a couple hours clearing paths to the fallen and damaged trees,gonna start cutting and hauling this week,at least my 2 deer stands are intact as is the my estate.I call cherry weeds cause we got so much of it,and it grows like weeds.The piles of locust are covered,and I've got a little wood as shown in my aerial shot.

    Thanks for the pictures OLA. They have been long awaited. That wood ought to get you through January.
