    No way. I wouldn't burn that at all. If you'd like, you can just ship it to me and I'll help you get rid of it at no cost.

    Certainly no problem with rot there. Some very good firewood.

    Part of the dealio - if you are cutting dead, dying or downed wood you will inevitably run into sections with rot. Depending on the extent I weigh BTU value Vs. effort to obtain and when the scale tilts I start on another tree. If you have limited storage space this will need to be figured into the equasion as well. With nearly unlimited space the lessor stuff just goes into the shoulder season pile or if it is really bad the outside fire pit pile for me. My school of thought is if the saw cut it - I am going to burn it!!

    For the record all that you have photographed would belong in the good stuff piles at my house.

    Yeah. Nice bunch of BTUs. I think the locust is toughest on the chain.
