I burn ALL species of wood in my 2000. It loves any kind of DRY wood. The Ash and maple will season much faster than any kind of oak. It takes a couple of years to properly season oak down to below 30% MC. Ash will be ready in 6 months, maple maybe 8-12, depending on species and conditions. If you have some big, straight 10-12' long trunks of white oak, save them for the mill. BTW - with all due respect, I think you are a bit optimistic on the yield. I have yet to see the tree that bucks and splits to much more than a real cord (4x4x8 - 128 cu ft). Not sure I would want to tackle the one that did! Get those oaks bucked and split ASAP, so that you can use them for the 2011-2012 season. I like my oak splits down to 3-6". I split my ash to 4-8", and my hemlock & EWP 8-10". BTW - I got a Sonin MM for Christmas. It helps me get a grip on MC beyond "feel". The oak I am burning now was down for years, but just bucked/split about 18 mos ago. Outside tests to 13%, but split it again and the interior tests to 28%. Right on the ragged edge, and no puffing. I mix it with real dry maple and pine.
