    Looks good even if I can't tell what it is by the pictures. Too far away to see good.

    Now you have your work cut out for you. Get that stuff cut and split ASAP so it can do some drying over the summer months and you'll be a very happy camper next winter.

    I'll try to get more pics up soon, especially once I have some of it cut. Its all small stuff, haven't seen anything much over 16-18 inhces in diameter.
    Looks to be mostly maple and ash, but I'm not entirely sure. Hoping for 8+ cords, but we'll see.

    Not only smaller stuff, but STRAIGHT. After hand splitting so much wood, I'm starting to look at trees differently, having disdain for a tree with lots of Y's and burls, and coveting limbs and trees that are straight as an arrow.


    Was that one of the commandments? "Though shalt not covet your neighbor's wood"

    Nice place and a beauty pile of logs..................You must be a descendant of Paul Bunyan if 16-18 inch wood is small!!

    The size logs you have are great for bucking up for the stove. Easy splitting, easy cutting; the best all around.

    Thanks for the encouragement. I'll post some pics when I get some processed. Should have some time to really get into it in a couple of weeks.

    Inferno- Last year we had three maples taken down that were 36-42 inch diameter. It was horrible. This stuff is a treat in comparison. :)

    Jack Straw- Close... I'm in Dorloo. Moved down here a couple years ago.

    KarriOn-

    It was 4 loads at $250 a load. Supposed to be roughly 2.5 cords a load.
