    Itll burn off in the stove, Just split and stack it off the ground and the growth will die off. Wont hurt anything to burn it.

    I wouldn't worry about the fungus, but I reckon those rounds aren't ready to burn.

    Get it split & stacked & dried out.
    Most of the fungus will fall off during splitting & stacking. ;)
    What doesn't will dry & burn just fine next year. :)

    Agree with the others on this. I've seen worse for sure and it still burned good.

    No. Not okay to burn in an insert. It will however burn okay in a gassification boiler. Please deliver to my house the next time you are up this way and I will take it off your hands for you. :)
