- ? When taking down trees, like a Maple that is only 3-4", is it ok to cut up to make small kindling type wood, or is that a waste of time?
- ? How close to a building can you stack a wood pile to allow good drying?
- ? What is the story on junipers, ie juniperus virginiana? Native here in Iowa, and actually can be a lovely tree. Can that or should that be burned in the stove, or is it best for campfires? We have an abundance of small trees throughout our farm and timber.
Were I live, there is a lot of hickory, oak both red and white, honey locust, ash (2 dying, needing taken down in our yard soon), walnut, hackberry. We have lots available to use on the farm and the timber farm that is actually the original homestead of DH's grandfather. Thats where the hickory, locust, oak, and maybe some elm are. Oh and we have a lot of random mulberry that we take down in between the old farm machinery.
And finally, SCORE! I have a short bed pickup load of 2 year old wood coming today, dumped on the ground. I may be paying too much, but the guy called me right back and told me how he gets the wood. He told me if I didn't like it he'd be ok with not dumping. He said "there's no cardboard or junk wood in this load. He sources from tree cutting companies and friends. He also cuts his own. Wood is Oak, locust, elm, walnut, and mulberry.
