    I guess on a WAF-scale of 1 to 10 that scores a negative 100.
    I am just trying to picture me getting a whole tree trunk in our living-room. :eek:

    Hmm... well at least put it at an angle on rollers so that it can gravity feed!

    So, how long would it take to dry out the whole tree eh? At least they don't seem to mind burning a softwood there.

    Certainly no debate about whether better to load N-S or E-W.

    And trying to get the kids to bring in a load of wood for the night is also out of the question.

    You can't tell from the photo but it dosen't need a conveyor, it has a 300' flue so once you get it hot the draft sucks the log in. It can be regulated by the damper.!!!

    You don't put the tree in your living room, you cut a hole in your wall.

    Now you can get rid of those VCs! And think of the time you can save bucking and splitting without 3 stoves to worry about!

    Imagine how folks that have that stove will dry their tree length, or better yet, request dead standing from their supplier.

    I just looked at the website and saw the tree length rack for "in waiting" trees. It looks like you need a free 18' wall for trees

    And the creator of this gem was able to make it on the cheap too, a 55 gallon drum and some single wall. I'm guessing the 'tree stand' would cost more to make
