    I had a few extra shots of the woods around my cabin and some of the extra wood the loggers left behind.

    This damage to the tree is from a Pileated Woodpecker, there like a beaver with wings.

    One of my wood piles blew over and there is some more trees the loggers cut down, they were growing over the pole barn. I was afraid they could hit the roof and dent it. So they dropped them for me.

    Black Walnut, the locals tell me it's gummy to burn, and should only use it on a hot fire.

    smokey, that is an old wives tale. we have a lot of black walnut around here and it is good firewood. i have burnt it myself and it is fine.

    Bruce thanks for the info, I never burned black walnut before, but I have plenty now to experiment with.

    Great pics, thanks for posting them.

    As for that black walnut; I would stay away from it if I was you. Tell you what, PM me with the directions to your place and I'll come take it off your hands ;-)
