    Looks great. It will feel even better when you aren't wearing shorts. I jealous, all my wood is still sitting in rounds.

    I'm not sure really. Their web site says: "Oak, Ash, & Hickory". It's nice wood and evenly split without a lot of knotty pieces.

    I ordered it from here:
    http://www.buckscountyfirewood.com/product.php#firewood

    I paid $425 for 2.5 cords. ($170/cord)

    The guy was adamant that his cords are real and true cords. Seems about right to me. :)

    We just got an Avalon Rainier wood stove insert and would like to talk to users of this stove. We live in New York and are looking to save money on heating. Last year we purchased 804 gallongs of oil. I recently purchased wood (about 4 cords) and don't know if I'll have enough.

    Can you please e-mail me with your experience, schmev123@yahoo.com and let me know how many logs you burn on a cold winter day?

    regards,

    Evan

    Looks like red oak in that pile. That's good heatin' wood there. Enjoy your dwindling fuel bills...

    schmev123,

    Last year I burned 2.5 cords of wood. I heard that a rule of thumb is: By March you should still have half your supply of wood - ie, don't burn it all before March because there's still a lot of cold days up until May. Also make sure your wood has been seasoned (ie, is old and not "green"). I am about to install a chimney liner so I expect that my stove will be more efficient. Do you have a good chimney?

    tutu_sue,

    Yep some good wood for sure. Even though I bought this wood back in March it may not be ready for this year since there is a lot of oak. I may order some "seasoned" wood to hold me over for a while and give this batch more time to dry.
