I'm down to the last face cord of the sugar maple c/s/s in my basement over 35 years ago, when we built the house. Wood isn't weathered (been inside the wholetime), looks like the day it was split, no checking. Dried nice and slowly from the moment it was cut. Only have a few inches of topsoil on a limestone base, so my densely wooded lot produces dense trees. I recently brought a few splits of this nice old wood up from the basement as a treat, since the season is almost over. This split has a radius of 7 or 8 inches. Want to count the rings?
