    A few years ago, a bad ice storm tore things up pretty good here in Oklahoma. In the aftermath, I ended up taking down a river birch and a lacebark elm. I piled up a lot of it for a shooting backstop, and the rest went into a ditch behind the house. Assuming that it isn't rotten, would it be worth my while to salvage? There's probably 3 or 4 ricks worth.

    Depends on how much your time is worth and what you have.

    Even if it's rotted it will burn, after it's dried out. Not much heat in rotted wood, but if you don't have anything else...

    I wouldn't bother with anything that has rotted too much, but there is nothing wrong with River Birch and Lacebark Elm. Both will make nice firewood.
