Still working through hemlock. Slowly starting to see the hard maple row in the wood shed. It’s 26 out there today and the hemlock is doing surprisingly ok. The stove at the lake (BK) gets fed anything pretty much, cedar, hemlock, basswood, white birch....that thing is not fussy.

Temps haven't been to bad but the wind has made it seem colder the last couple of days. I have a mix of locust and ash in the stoves to keep the chill away.

Burning Hunk
Feb 15, 2015
Oddly enough, I’ve been burning loads of willow due to the mild temps for daytime burns. Oak loads at night tho. I had big reservations about the willow, but it’s been doing the job. Don’t get me wrong, it’s super light and I have to reload about every 2-3 hours, but it’s crap wood I need to burn. Been drying for a few years now so it doesn’t have much life left to it. It’s not been as bad as I thought tho. And it’s letting me save my harder stuff for Jan-March.
