I was reading in a couple of threads here, seem's like some of you guy's don't like to burn pine ? other than the quick burn rate, any other reason's ? Several years ago, I did a "deal" with a guy here in Southern "Komifornia" he was hauling semi truck & trailer loads of 20 inch "logs" he was cutting up in Flagstaff AZ, I let him use my north pasture to dump & split the logs, then he had a crew that would bundle it up in plastic with a small rope handle on them, he sold the bundles of 6 MAYBE 7 pieces at $3.00 a "bundle" to ALL the 7-11 stores, home depot/lowes, Circle K stores, Walmart, etc., here and in Arizona. Said he could get 15 cords of the un-split 20 inchers in a truck ( 18 wheeler ) and trailer, figured after it was split he'd end up with 16 cords. The stores get $6 to $7 a "bundle" from the "tourist's" I've got a woodshed that will hold 8 cords of split wood, some years I seem to get more pine than the eucalyptus, sometimes I'll luck out an get some walnut, and this year I hit the jackpot, figure I've got 4 cords of REAL red oak and maybe 6 or 8 cords of good redgum eucalyptus, ALL delivered in 20 to 24 inch lengths, I'll have to trim a bit of the longer stuff, BUT, the owner of the tree service company say's it's a hell of a lot easier for him to have HIS crew load it on MY car trailer an drop it here at the ranch. All I gotta do is unload it an have it ready for THEM to pick up the following morning ................................THIS is gonna be a GREAT "burn year" for me, actually, the next 3 MAYBE 4 years.
