Compliments of the wind storm last week, I have snagged a lot of free pine and spruce. If I split it up sometime in the next month or so and put it in a very nice sunny, windy spot will it be ready for the fall or does pine take longer to season? Plus any problems with the chimney when using pine. I am lucky to have hardwoods around here but I just could not pass up the free wood. Even though I got sap all over my clothes Oh one more thing, how does hemlock burn?
