I have an opportunity and a problem. My house is built on 7 acres of land that used to be a tree nursery. Unfortunately the last owner had sold most of the good trees (oaks and maples) and left a lot of landscape grade spruce and pine that wasn't cared for and lots (and lots and lots) of Scotch pine from someone's effort to grow Christmas trees. The trees range from 15' to 30' tall and are of very poor quality. I was advised by a landscaper friend to heavily thin them out or cull them entirely. Rather than just cut them and let them rot I plan on processing them into firewood. I've cut a few down and test burned them and found that they are not the worst firewood that I've ever burned (that would be poplar) and might be a good shoulder season wood. The problem is that when splitting them they are so stringy and warped that it is very difficult to build a decent woodpile. What are my options? A giant stack o'pine? I don't want to spend the time to cut each piece so that it would lie in a stack evenly. Any advice would be appreciated.
