    Firewood cutting.. carpenter ants. Freak or ignore?

    That's no kiddin lol. My chickens love when I split wood. If I bust in to a piece with ants they go crazy and make short work of them. Anyways you are destroying their ideal environment and the wood is still good for burning.

    Felled my first tree

    Basically the opposite of conventional cut. The angle cut is left on stump instead of your firewood.

    Storing wood in a garage

    O yea....ortho home defense...like 15 bucks for 1 gallon....works great for killing those critters. Just spray around your pile on floor in garage or footer and or stem wall of whole house for that matter. Not affiliated with ortho but this stuff is useful

    Storing wood in a garage

    Huh pimples....sounds like hickory to me. As long as it's fairly dry and not obviously infested with termites or other critters u should b ok.

    Green wood and creosote

    I agree. No house ever burned down from over cleaning a chimney. That being said...burn the wood that u have to until you get ahead of the wood game. Just check your chimney often cause like vwmike said a fireplace isnt as bad cause it isnt choked down. But when you line it and put stove in I...

    Yead I had a lot of red oaks that I believe died this summer from drought i guess. I will give the 85 a look over as soon as I get a chance.

    I'm always amazed at the small amount of ashes after the fire burns down

    If you have post oak cut them a year in advance and let them lay. Come back year later cut and split and bark will normally peel rite off. Lot less ash and makes post oak even better firewood. Great fence post as well hence the name.

    Thanks for the reply. I wanna stick with wood simply for the reason that it is what I have always been around. I also have plenty of timber i own so wood isnt really a cost factor other than saw maintenance and my labor of course....which I enjoy. I will definately look at the blaze king if I...
