Here is an unusual problem. I just bought a new house and it has way too many trees in the front yard. I estimate I will be cutting about 55 trees down, some as big as 3' at the base. In all I will probably end up with 30 cord. I will burn about 3 1/2 cord a year. I have from my previous house 7 seasoned, split cord and about 3 1/2 unseasoned split cord. In other words some of this wood will not be burned for 12 years from when it is cut. What is the best way to preserve this wood short of dipping it in wax? I am thinking stack it with an excavator log length then pull of a couple logs each year to split and stack. Any other thoughts besides "give me some"
