We have a Lopi Liberty on order. We do not have a 1-2 year seasoned stock of firewood and I am working to get as much as I'll need this winter right now split/stacked and then in the fall work towards having another 2ish years worth. I am thinkin 4-6 cords to heat our house in Missouri this next winter (2400 square feet two story 1920s, not well insulated) but we won't know until the winter is over haha. So far I mostly have what was standing dead red oak/white oak split and stacked with a little cherry mixed in. Probably 2.5-3 cords. I have 1/2 a cord of silver maple, a face cord of hedge and I just grabbed at least 1/2 a cord of salvaged wood out of a service entrance near my job. It was sycamore/elm rounds that are so light I know they have to be dried out. I am lucky to have a variety of things on the property and around me but was hoping for some tips to get the most out of what I have. Obviously the oak will be for the overnight/coldest nights + some hedge for when it drops below zero but since they are not going to be 1+ year seasoned, would it be best to mix in some of the elm/sycamore/maple to help drive out some of the moisture? I know this is not an exact science but I don't want to hit crazy cold temperatures and have spent all my super dry sycarmore/elm/maple in the shoulder season and find out that I need it just to get the oak to burn. With school nearly out for the kids, my firewood harvesting days are going to be limited and I will be doing my best to only target stuff like cherry/maple that will be mostly dry by winter. Thanks for any tips you can give me!
