Pics because it did happen. Long story short, my brother inlaw and sister inlaw had a maple cut down about a year ago. We weren't burning at the time, or else I would have been all over that "Tell them to leave the tree there! LEAVE THE TREEE1111111oneoneoneone" My brother inlaw had saved some chunks to burn in their fire pit for the upcoming summer. Well, they had 2 or 3 fires. So he asked me if I wanted the wood he had left. Sure! I got a decent haul; hard to say how much. But as a weekend burner, I'm sure this will last me awhile. I'm not sure what type of maple this is. Can you tell from the pics? The wood was cut a year ago. However, it was split a few months ago. Think it'll be ready to burn in another month or so?
