    Today I came across a score of Red Pine already bucked and tossed into a pile. There is probably a cord there, but I don't have much stacking room left for it, so I'm thinking of leaving it in case I come across some good hardwood sometime. Dang it, I hate to pass up free wood no matter what kind.

    You could always sell the pine if you come across something better.

    Take it! Remember most of the Pacific Northwest is covered with softwoods, besides the land of the good folks in Scandinavia.

    Use it in the shoulder seasons, or for shorter burns. Season it properly and with no shortcuts.

    Before someone else makes a big mistake, load it up immediately and deliver it to me to dispose of safely through carefully controlled combustion using advanced pryolisis. It's too dangerous to leave where it is.

    Hardwood won't necessarily be ready for next winter if you process it now, but you can burn that pine for sure. Take it, AND the hardwood you find for next year. Mix it in with your other stuff.

    Funny thing happened on the way to pick up that Pine. I arrived there and there was a nice pile of Maple and Ash logs, so I passed on the Pine and took the good stuff. :cheese: Upon further review most of the Pine was kinda punky and full of ants.

    When your sidelined and out of commission, because of your own Dumb A**s,,,and then to add insult to injury, you read every thread about someones "Wood " score,,,knowing you will limp away from your computer Pis**d. Then you know you got the wood bug!! Heck, I`d consider joining the PTEP, if it came with a Pine Scented air freshner for the desk.

    I think your letting Todd off too easy. His use and priorities for pine really hurts. :mad: What we do know here is that real men don't just use Pine in the shoulder seasons. Us gifted pine club members are even man enough to be able to heat with it through the depth of winter. So there!
    Todd you will have to sit in the back at our first AGM if you are to subscribe. Now go to your wood pile and think of what you have said while you stare at all that nice hard wood we cant have. HUMFF :down: :lol: Cheers

    Are you sure that wood was there for you to take? Sounds like it was someone's wood pile and you just swiped it.
