    Is Indiana the epicenter for Shagbark growth?
    The Ohio River Valley is supposed to be the best location for viewing North American hardwoods at their finest. It shows the widest species range. In NY where I am, the hickories are at their northernmost. No Pecans though.
    Timj do you have Pecan trees where you are?

    Dave, those are painted ribbed roof sheets for barns or houses that I had extra. I really don't worry at all about top covering. I only did it because I had them.
    Applesister, I do not have pecan trees, but as you said we are blessed with about every kind of hardwood..........several types of oaks and several types of hickory.
    Scotty, I have about 27 cords strown about ............9 cords hickory about 9 cords of white oak.
    The rest is red maple, red elm, sycamore an enough tulip poplar and sassafrass to get me through October.

    That's awesome, Tim! :cool: More than double what I have right now. No Shagbark in the stacks but I do have some Pignut. Might have some Shagbark to get, if it's in good shape. Saw it from a distance, and it's off the ground.
    A lot of those look like single-row stacks....

    We look to be in the center of Shagbark range but the range is wide, covering most of the eastern US. We've got Shagbark and Pignut on the property but they never die! The only stuff I've gotten has been blowdown scores. They show Pecan range along the Ohio here. I got some a couple years ago but it I think it was planted. Not sure if I've seen any in the woods. There are lots of species here but you don't see 'em all in one place, as a rule. For example, there is a lot of Pin Oak around here but none on the property since they prefer wetter soil. What we have is mainly an Oak-Hickory forest, with a good bit of White Ash and Tulip. But, yeah, a lot of variety. In the stacks, we also have Red Elm, Dogwood, Persimmon, River Birch, Mulberry, Black Cherry etc. I would love to go back in time and see the mature forest that was here before they started clearing land. That would be a jaw-dropper, for sure....

    Woody, those stacks havn't come easy. I do something every single week and worked all winter as well. I have over 700 running feet of single stacked wood. I snapped some pictures I owed, but as you can see by my signature I am not one to talk about the equipment I use or the amount of wood I have , but that's just me.....keep the pictures coming
