About 1/6 cord of mostly pine and fir. It's been warmer here, and not burning every day.

About 1/4 cord so far. I alternate between the stove and the oil furnace.
I've burned about a cord out in the garage, but I don't count that.

I started burning in mid October, mostly morning fires. This past week it's been burning 24/7. The days have been in the low thirty's, nights in the twenty's. I burned a 1/3 of a cord to date. Mostly red oak, a little maple and poplar.

I've used about a cord of elm since the middle of October,some of it is quite punky so been burning it during the day and using my better stuff at night.I'm saving my 2 cord of Black Locust and White Oak for really cold weather.

About 1/4 to at most 1/2 a cord. Started back with just pine for ocational fires in Oct. Began to suppliment in some oak the begining of this month, and since the last cold snap started a week or so ago, we're into 100% oak with morning and evening fires.

I've been burning 24/7 since September and have used about 1 1/4th cord--all softwoods, that's all we've got here. (Our rainy season begins in the fall and it's quite chilly and damp.) It's starting to get much colder and I'm noticing that I'm burning a bit more. The past several mornings I've started using the blower on the stove, too. I've still got a good bed of coals in the morning, but the house temps are hovering at 68 vice 71 because the outside temps are going down to the low teens. I'm still impressed with the efficiency of the EPA stove.

A cord is always 128 CF. Any other portion of a cord must be specified.

Oh, and I'm down just over 1/2 a cord so far. 2YO Alder and fir.

Too much, about a cord of white oak and black cherry with a bit of maple thrown in. I hate to see how the rest of the cold months might be.

Will get my wood shed finished before it snows bad, and get started on next years. :roll:
