    :)

    Well it is a new year...right? What do you guys see in there this time? Looks like mostly oak and maple to me. This is mostly stuff from Sandy.

    The last load got me there. This one will get me ahead for sure.
    I got this bug bad man :)

    Thanks,
    Bruce

    Sorry, I'm just not that good from that distance. I would need closer pictures, but I think I see one soft, maybe silver, maple.

    I see a lot of FUN! I love processing stuff like that. But also a blast to drop a tree.

    The smaller, bent logs in pic 3 look like honey locust.

    I see mostly red and norway maple, looks like possibly a cherry log or two also. Good stuff for the shoulder season and for daytime burns...

    I see the birch but not the ash. I did ask him for some but he said he didn't have much of that. I think there is a small hickory on the bottom also.

    I shouldn't have to post so many id's like last time. You guys educated me pretty good:). I'll be knocking if I get stuck though. ;) I will be cutting this up at my leasure. I still have 6 oak logs to split from the last load. Looks like I will end up with about 8 cord from that delivery. This load looks a little lighter, maybe 6 cord.

    Thanks,

    No cherry in there. I hope there is more hard maple than soft.

    I'm thinking it's red maple and Norway. But that Norway is almost as good as hard maple.......has long burn times, great overnighter firewood.

    I didn't see any sugar maple in your pile......:(

    The only thing I want to know is what kind of fence are you going to make with the splits :)
