    Split pine and had a salamander or newt or something in there. He was in a hole made by a big grub of some sort that was about full of water.

    Have had snakes in the pile, mice, a cat living under it, and pulled a screw in eye bolt and ring out of my woodstove recently after burning. Have had wires through trees, etc.

    I found a bullet when I was splitting over the weekend. It's not even mushroomed and you can see the rifle marks from the barrel on the bullet. It almost looks like someone placed it next to the tree and it grew around it since it's not damaged. I'll snap a picture when I get a minute.

    I had a beech tree that was hollow in the center in a pile all summer. I'm not sure when they got in there, but the center was packed with slim pine cones. Somebody lost their stash.
