Up here in CT last week there was some serious windstorms, that claimed a 6'x6' section of my stockade fence. Today I broke it down, cut it into 16" pieces with the skill saw, and now I have enough dry pine kindling (untreated of course) to last this season and some of next. Great for getting a fire going. Better yet, it saves me a trip to the dump and I can save my fatwood sticks for whenever. Gotta love a woodstove!
