I posted this earlier...or so I thought. must have failed to post properly. I have more wood than I am likely to burn this season. Likely to have wood left over that I stacked 2 years ago. I think at this point I still have 5-6 cords stacked. I will continue to gather, split, and stack wood since I get it free and you never know what the next heating season will be like. But let's assume I keep going and I have 10 or 15 cords (10 likely..... 15 not likely) set up by next winter. At some point I will lose wood to bugs. As it stands now I am seeing some wood that is bug eaten....most of it still goes in the stove unless it's moist. Also there appears to be some fungus loss or something like that. I have noticed that on some of the older oak, the growth ring seams to be very soft like cork and very light in color. There is also some large lichen growing on the outside of the wood. The environement is moist in the summer but riight now it's bone dry. The wood still burns great so I keep burning it...... B but lets assume I have more than I need next season....andd more than I can use without experiencing some serious rot and loss. Find a needy older person and do a good deed? how many of you have run into this issue before?
