Both of my wood suppliers are totally decent and honest people. But me thinks still haven`t learned how to burn properly themselves. Been dealing with them for more than 10 years now and they have both seen my woodsheds and rows of wood stacked out to dry-and so they know that I only burn wood that is at least 18 months seasoned. But here is the story--this spring they bring me my csd and are proud of themselves because they say "look at this stuff? it`s ready to burn right now".. And they Believe it!! Thing is--it isn`t anywhere near ready to burn. One of them even sold me a cord of Arbutus for the same price as a cord of softwood. And yes, it was a steal. But only because I know it won`t be ready to burn until 2011. Anyway, all of this stuff measures anywhere from 30% up to 40% moisture content. Not ready to burn at all.!! But they think it is. And let me say, they are not trying to be dishonest or fool me, they acutally think it is "ready to go". Only reason I even considered pointing out the obvious, is because sometimes they deliver to widows, single mom`s , and or people with not much money and are trying to stay warm with (cheap wood heat). But I said Nothing, and the next paragraph explains why-- I only know that my 2 suppliers are really good to deal with-- sometimes hardwood for the same price as softwood. I don`t know their customers? And I have come to the conclusion that the customer should educate themselves, and I should not bother to aleinate my suppliers/specially for the "possible" benefit of their customers-most of which I will never meet. If people are dumb enough to burn green wood, that is their problem--not mine. I don`t know them, will probably never meet them, but my suppliers I see at least twice a year. And just because they are as ignorant as their customers, is no reason for me to open my mouth and possibly "piss them off".. Think I am just gonna keep the good thing going? Agree//Disagree??
