Good score. What's it like to split? Is it stringy?

Not at all splits beautifully, this is red not American which is rubbish, red elm is a phenomenal wood for your stove.

Nice, i have not seen that red color on any elms hear in East Coast in Jersey. Check your chain. Looks like your cutting a bit crooked. 1 side sharper than the other I'd guess by those ends.
