    Here is a picture of my fire wood (the orange dead ones), I have yet to cut and stack it, but there is plenty of it (thousands of years worth) and I know exactly where to get it, it's just waiting for me to come and get it.

    A shot of the wood stacks after we had a few trees taken down.

    Now I've moved all the wood to the processing area and have begun to split some. So much more to do!

    Is the rope attached to the tree designed to keep that one still-living tree from getting away before you have a chance to take it down? ;) :)

    If you have 3 years for it to dry you don't much have to worry about any space between the rows. It will still dry in that time frame. I've stacked 9 or 10 rows tight together and it is all dry after 3 years.

    Okay, so not the purdiest stacks going, but they seem to be working out for me. None have fallen over... yet.
    The two far left piles are from trees we had taken down a year ago May, mostly ash and maple. The rest of the wood in the picture was all scrounged and is made up of maple, cherry, ash, a little bit of elm, and probably a few I'm not 100% sure of. These stacks are 2-3 piles deep. To the far right is a pile of stuff that still needs to be c/s/s.
    The other picture of the stacks under the deck are a cord of red and white oak I bought back in March or April because I wasn't sure if I'd be able to find wood for myself through scrounging. It was cut/split back in January and I was hoping to burn it this year, but after reading how long it takes for oak to dry, I might be leaving most of it sit for awhile, though some of it does seem to be drying nicely.

    Well iceman, thanks for the kind words. I'm a bit obssessive compulsive :)

    I like to stack 'em once and not worry about 'em after that.

    Hey Todd, and zapny make some real nice piles, and PapaDave appears to have the same disorder, he appears to use a straighedge on his piles, savage should get a blue ribbon on his stacks, and Archer39 don't seem to find crooked acceptable either haha!

    It also looks like every cut that Ansehnlich1 has is exactly the same lenght.

    That right there is why i take time to make them nice. I hate doing things twice. If something is worth doing it is worth doing right the first time or not doing it at all.

    Ya, I got a little German in me and it makes me want to do stuff right....funny thing is though, I have some REAL Germans in my life and they think my piles are a bit ratty lookin.....guess a couple generations in the ole USA have tempered my perfectionism a bit.

    Hello all. I'm new here, so I thought I would post a few pics of a few stacks I've been working on. This is one of my stacks mostly hemlock and doug fir. We bought a new Enviro Kodiak this year will be our first full winter using it - can't wait. Ron
