ok people lets get to posting pics of our pride and joy! (wood stacked or piled... )
my guesstimate is about 11-12 cords in my back yard split and stacked
..
hopefully this years wood will be drier than lasts so i wont use as much wood.. on average i use about 4 cord... but this is the first year burning something that has been sitting for at least 2 summers or more..

Not sure where i am going to start on the pile. I have about 2 cords of dead standing oak that was cut in September of 2009 that would be the easiest to get to but i think i am gong to let that go for next year. Then i have 8 cords of ash, maple, walnut and some black gum that was all c/s/s between nov-jan. I am thinking that is going to be my best bet. Then i have another 1.5 cords of red oak that was c/s/s in February. That was green when cut so it will be for 2012-2013 beings that i have about 5 cords of ash to c/s/ between then and now.

I have another 3 cords of popular, maple and hickory that is split but in a big pile awaiting to be stacked once i burn some to make room. That will go along with the red oak for the 2012-2013 season.

Dennis, how high are your stacks approximately? I am looking to stack in the open and i found that anything over 5 foot gets pretty unstable.

thank you, but it is not so nice now. It is kinda leaning and the entire back row in the long sections is fallen into the front row.

I thought you would never ask. I am going to eliminate my ICON this year, this is my seasoned Holtz Hausen of Cherry. About 5 cords, I am really going to miss seeing it and talking about it.

The second picture is Oak Lane with a Cherry End Cap. Probably about 4 cords.

Third picture is a mini HH of Ash and Hickory bordered with a wall of Locust, Sassafras, Cherry, Maple, Oak and Beech.

Picture 4 is a PVC Rack with a metal roof close to the house.

Here is the rest of my hoard. Still alot of dead stuff in the woods, some is already cut.

The Beech Pile I started on recently. I hear this stuff is great to burn.

Finally, this pile will go this year, starting to move some now. Fast seasoning maple and some hot burning locust for when it gets cold.

Watch out Dennis, I am trying to get ahead of you. I did most of this within the last year, split by hand with a Monster Maul and a Fiskars. I finally met my match with some really old ELM tree that I think may have injured my elbow. Heaven forbid I have even considered getting a log splitter. Quads would never forgive me. I will give it a week and hope it heals up, but it is driving me crazy that I cannot keep adding to the hoard.

At least two years worth seasoned and ready to burn.
With at least another year waiting to be split!

First shot is for 2010 all Oak, 2nd is for 2011 mostly Oak with some Ash and Honey Locust. The Pile is for 2012 which will be stacked in the shed after I burn the 2010 supply. Last picture is under my porch, got about 1 cord of left over Black Locust, Hackberry and some Oak shorties I had to cut in half that I used for the old fireplace. I think I'll burn the shorties first this Fall. Looks like i have about 10 cords.

Yeah, i like to walk by every day and admire the stacks. It's also a good thing I have that pile on standby to fill the shed back up as soon as possible.
