So short story first: Dad has been burning wood for heat for about 30 years now. Naturally he's kind of stuck in his methods of thinking as far as dying and burning goes. He's ok with cutting rounds leaving them for a year or so then splitting and burning the wood. I keep trying to subtly tell him we need to get the rounds split up and stacked but this is how's he done it for decades so it works for him. He also told me most wood is good in a year to burn, which is true to some extent, then in the next breath he said hedge is good to burn green because it doesn't pick up much water anyway. I told him the last hedge pieces I cut had sap running out of them. He said well wait a year then burn it. This is my first year burning so I know I have ALOT to learn. But I understand split wood dries faster then rounds. So I ask, what's the best way to try to say my father's thinking about burning wood? Have any of you guys had this dilemma?
