    Your good friend gave you some nice soft maple. You will find that if you get that split and stacked right away, you may be able to burn some of that by January or February. You will also enjoy splittting it because it splits really nice. We always save some of that and make kindling in about 1" x 1". Naturally that small it will dry super fast and the reason we like it for kindling is that it lights really quick and easy which makes fire starting much easier. Combine that with about 1/4 of a super cedar and you have a real winner.

    Love maple... When the bark falls off, you have a lean clean fire making machine....

    Nice score...

    Looks like red maple (aka soft maple) great stuff for the woodstove for sure! Probably my favorite shoulder season wood......seasons super fast, smells good when burning, and cranks out the heat!
