    All my scrounge wood went through the splitter. A good mix of Cherry, Red Maple, Sugar Maple and White Ash.

    Over the last couple weeks I've seen a Blue Spruce and Hemlock being taken down in my area. I stopped and asked both places and the wood was spoken for already!

    That's really interesting. My last two pine scrounges involved the folks telling me: "You know this is pine, right? You can't burn this inside...you have a firepit, correct?" I don't argue with them or lecture them. "Yep, firepit...I'll put it to good use."

    We have a nice big Hemlock we are processing at my Bro-Law's House. If it's wood and it's seasoned....I'll use it.

    Every time you post pics I am envious of your stacking ability. I end up giving my piles a hip toss here, a shoulder there... all done to keep the pile upright. I think its cause I stack 5.5-6 ft tall. I only have a measly 8 plus cord stacked and will do more when it cools off. You are my hero! :lol:

    Must be hearth.com member to know our secret about burning softwoods. Look for the special handshake.

    No kidding - that first pic looks like he took a hand planner to the face of it. Thats why I only show pics of my heaphausens and not my stacked wood. :red:

    It helps to have straight trunks, it also helps to use spray paint. I de-branch and then grab my measuring stick and mark it all the way down the trunk. Easy...no guessing.... just let it rip.

    it appears that there is a 460 or 660 in the back ground that'll get the big boys done in a hurry

    I was planning on posting pictures once I get my 12th cord processed but after these pics, I think I would just be embarrassed.
