I thought I could get it all done with one day's rental, but I was wrong. When I realized I wouldn't get it all done, I split the ugly rounds and left the little stuff for the axe. Now the stacking begins.... The pile on the left is almost entirely oak. The pile on the right is cherry as are the remaining rounds. The lighter colored splits are from a few rounds of poplar I had. BTW - I started burning a couple days ago - as it's gotten cold and we've even seen some october snow. I had one tree which I thought was a gum tree - but from looking on here - I now believe it was elm. It was nasty to split. We've been burning those first. They don't give much heat but they light easy, burn long, and put off alot of flames for viewing. They were such a pain to split - I had to noodle most of them after using the splitter and making a mess out of them. I would scounge some again. It's burning fine.
