    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.

    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.
    Get them cherry trees up before the snow hits.
