So I'm looking for my wood supply for next year. I found a post on CL for wood that seemed to be a good price etc. As they all do, it was listed as "seasoned hard wood". I asked when it was split (I literally could hear a saw in the background.. funny eh?). The story is as follows: The logs were cut a year and a half ago and have been "seasoning" in a pile since that time. He is bucking and splitting them now. So, I am quite certain this wood is NOT ready to burn now (despite his opinion), but any guesses if I buy it and stack it well now for the summer if it will likely be good to burn this fall? I forgot to ask exactly what type of 'hard wood' it is, but I'll guess oak and ash given what most commonly sold about here - I will ask when I actually call back.
