Alright then NY
Keep hard on that pile now so its ready
Nice, very very nice.
Is that mulberry with the dark heartwood?
Looks good NYLife, what types of wood are in the stack?
Mulberry & Hard Maple?
Lookin good anyway. It is a great feeling to get ahead on wood. Even 1 year ahead makes a huge difference. Well, unless it's oak that is.
How much will you need for next years supply?
Looking good ny.... Your getting there! That will be good heat when its ready. its warming you when you split it, and then it will warm you when you burn it!
Great job..! Mullberry burns very nice. A great BTU FIREWOOD.
I'm just getting the hang of it. It's only my first year.
It sure will. Also some evergreen to the right
I'm not sure as its my first year burning. I should have at least 7 or 8 cords split and stacked by spring time.
Yes sir with some evergreen to the right
Getting ahead is the hardest part . Staying ahead is comparatively easy . You're doing well , keep it up !
Looks good! A lot of work to get ahead but it's worth it!
Thanks. It would be so much easier but the kids always come first. I,m teaching my little one how to stack the wood and once all 3 get bigger my stacks will last me for years...
Thanks. It sure is worth it especially when the boiler is not on and you have no oil bill
Nothing like slave labor
And you are doing really good for your first year. Just think what this will be in a couple more years!
Thanks to you guys. I've learned quite a bit and I'm still learning more each day I come to this forum
My first year of heating with wood I spent the winter cutting and using the dead and driest wood for the present year and everything else I put aside for the following,by the end of the season I was a year ahead.It was a lot of work but was worth the effort,now I have wood for several years and it doesn't seem as bothersome to process wood if I tackle a little at a time.
It is a very comfortable, satisfied feeling once you have gotten ahead with the stacks. Money in the bank! And gets more valuable as it ages.
like its gaining interest?
I'm trying to do the same as you. I'll have a few extra cords once my neighbor takes down his 3 maple trees
Family always comes first . Enjoy this time that you get to spend with them , it goes faster than you might think .
Our daughter has been in the A.F. For 10 years now. She's been stationed in Korea, and now the UK for the last few years . Her absents (sp) is most keenly felt this time of year . Both Jan and I are retired A.F. , so we understand . But, it doesn't make it any easier. So, takes lots of pics of your kids, hug them and tell them how much you love them .
Sorry for getting OT! Just had to get that off my chest .
