    I was going to call him and say "let's get started", when guess who shows up at my firewood staging area ;)

    2 loads later.......

    Delivered firewood in the middle, the last of the Sand Stash/still to be processed to the left upper & right lower.

    This load is birch, light, like pine. It'll season quick, once it's stacked.

    Speaking of pine, it's taken me 3 years to convince him, but he's finally processing it for me (still shaking his had at me, but what the hay :p)

    Are you encouraging Pine for shoulder season or because he gives it to you cheaper?

    I'm thinking about scrounging up a cord of pine for shoulder season.
    Tons of it around because nobody really wants it.

    Pauly, go for the pine, and don't be afraid to take more.

    Now, I have to convince him that I need hardwoods, too ;)

    Not intending to hijack, but are gypsy moths predicted to be bad this year? I see the tape on the tree in the background. I remember early to mid 90s those suckers were BAD in the Jersey area.

    No Gypsy moths in quite a few years.... the duct tape is a tree tagged to come down, so my tree guy knows which ones to cut .

    I got home today, and he'd brought another load :cool:
