Hello all , I have been reading the posts here for about a month and have read most posts going back 30 pages and have learned a lot. Now I am not new to burning wood but still have learned a lot reading posts here. I have almost 3 years of wood c/s/s . I put 5 cord in each stack and this years is covered. Still have about 3-5 cord yet to split by maul. If I can't split it I cut it up. Don't have a log splitter as of yet. I am a bit of a wood collector and get all my wood at the city wood pile, very , I mean very seldom do I have to go out of town to get wood. I get a lot already cut to size , all I got to do is load up bring home a split. The wood I have got just this year is apple, cherry, hedge, walnut, mulberry, white oak, black oak, pine,locust,elm[red], hackberry, maple, sweet gum, hard maple and maybe a couple I forgot. The black oak is a VERY LARGE tree, trunk is over 5 foot across. I got most of the limbs and they wre about 2-3 foot. Nobody around here will mess with the big stuff. Where I get my wood, there is right now about 5-7 pickup beds full still there and it has been there most of the year. One Question -- I see a lot of you use pallets, do they hold up very well and what about termites?
