    Before we moved additional wood up to the house for the next couple of weeks or so. My son and i figured out how much wood we have used so far for the season. We took some measurements and figured out that so far we have burned .75 cord this year that would be from when we started burning in October to basically December 1st

    Were thinking we may use a little more this year
    So how much have you guys used so far.. rough guess is fine if you dont want to measure.

    We've burned 1.24 cord of shoulder season wood or 4 face cord of white pine and by the end of this week we'll have burned 0.62 cord of cherry or 2 face cord.

    We also have a pellet stove but I'm not sure how many bags we've burned this year. Last year was very cold in Northern NY and we burned either 52 or 53 bags. We had the pellet stove before we bought the property we get our firewood from.

    We’ve burned about 1/2 cord so far, we’ve been burning since mid October; way earlier than I expected to be burning! I have some pine that was recently cut that I’d love to be burning but it’s not ready yet. Been burning mainly ash, birch, and maple as that is what’s currently dry enough

    We've gone through about 1/3 cord so far, but we've only had a few days of below 45 degree weather so far. For us it has to be under 45 to fire up the um..fire. ==c

    It's been a cold November so wood usage is up from the last few years. I've burned half a cord but have let the furnace run now and then.

    I've burned a bit less than 2.5 face cord so far. So almost 1 cull cord. I'll probably hit the 1 cord mark by the end of the month. Wood use has gone down a little bit since I got my attic insulation up to par.

    I think I'm somewhere between 3/4 and 1 cord of mostly white pine and a little red maple. Definitely feels like more than previous years.

    Hard to keep track, as we use the shoulder season to clean up the uglies, funkies, and shorts. It's not all we use, but has made up a significant part of the fuel burned so far, starting at beginning of October.

    Guessing . . . about half a cord . . . a guess since I have maybe a quarter cord left in the stack and at least that amount, if not a bit more, stacked on the porch.

    This is funny as i am the complete opposite.. i go for the ugly, and crotchety wood once we start getting in the thick of winter. Its the only time i can get rid of them. I will burn them on a weekends here and there. There big and burn slow, and oddly shaped. Pretty much is all oak. I'll put up a pic later
    I feel i'v gone through a little more wood so far and it going to be colder the next 6 days

    Its been a cold November. I have gone through more than 1/2 cord of hardwood. I normally run my minsplit until mid December and not use the boiler but the temps have been cold enough I have run the boiler. I definitely need to ramp up cutting wood this winter and summer to keep on the two year season cycle.

    Well, probably 90% of the off-wood has been tulip poplar from the center of the loafhausen. That's all burned and the outside rows burned or restacked next to the house.

    We're starting to work through the better wood uglies, stuff that had been on top of the good stacks. Ash and oak, mostly, with a little walnut. A constant stream of tulip poplar as well.

    Next, we have a stack from a big black birch that is pretty punky and fungus-y. It was from the neighbors.

    I'm the opposite of both if you, I burn that stuff in the spring shoulder season, keep the nice fat, straight stuff for midwinter.

    We have to be at a cord now I would bet. We started burning again in early October I think. It has been cold lately, and I mean like February cold for daytime highs.

    Just under a cord I guess, but that is with 2 stoves and an Asian lady that is always cold (in the winter time that is).

    Dude your sooo on track.. lets throw a bunch of scrap and garbage wood in our stoves and then Jam a bunch of instruments in the flu to see if we can get it to burn correctly by tuning it even though there is nothing for adjustments on the stove

    Was the sawdust seasoned long enough? These modern EPA stoves don't like green sawdust.

    It depends if the sawdust was form softwoods or hardwoods. If it was from Pine: stomach cramps!

    Good point, Jan!

    Just walking by my little stand of white pine gave me diarrhea last week. Or, maybe it was that romaine lettuce that I picked up on a great sale at the Food Lion.
