    It is heavy as hell green. I don't think it takes up any more water than some other species though. Bradford Pear is a weed tree in our area and is taking over many a field that's left fallow for more than a few years. If it burns well then maybe not so much bad news. Originally I'm told it was cultivated as a sterile ornamental tree but no longer sterile.

    Most are sterile ornamental trees, or so folks thought. I've seen them crop up. I bet old ornamental Bradford's could be real gnarly.

    Those look like a pair of goatskin gloves I had in the first pic. They lasted a few days.

    This big girl let loose about two months ago. Finally getting around to getting it cleaned up. Ants and termites own the bottom 10 ft. Nice oak though. Will make great firewood. Even the limbs on it are a generous size.

    Did the wind take it down or did it go by itself, nice work.

    I finished up this pile of small pines, hopefully I have a bunch of fires in the outdoor fireplace this winter so I can get rid of this chit.

    Wind brought it down, and this tree took 2 pines with it. So I’ll have some pine to get rid of too.

    We don't have any oak on our property I cut on but did scrounge some in 2012, very nice firewood.

    I am planning to get rid of most the oaks in my yard this fall, and some hickory. Going to leave the maple trees though. Should be approximately 40 trees of varying size that I will take down. I need to open my yard up. We live in the woods.

    We also live in the woods but we have white pine on most of the lot except for the southside where it turns to hardwood.

    We took a load of pine branches to the wood dump early but since it's so humid that's all we'll do today.

    It's not real hot yet but the dew point and humidity make it worse. Saturday afternoon and night will be our greatest chance for severe weather unless they change the forecast.

    This is some cherry and maple I split the first week of July so unless it's storming tomorrow, it will get stacked.

    I finished stacking just after 12 today, attached are some pictures of a face cord of cherry with some maple on top. If we don't have any storms tomorrow morning, I think that I'll get my next stacking area ready.

    In case we get some high winds when the cold front moves in Sunday, I moved some firewood related items out of the woods. I'll get back to some stacking once the heat is gone.

    Thewoodlands the temps have been hot 85-90 high humidity. I moved four truck loads of oak and maple last night with the tractor till dark I don't have any pics. I figured if I waited till Sunday it would rain all day and I wouldn't have time. It is supposed to be hot for another day or so then cool down temps in the 70's next week. I like this heat plus it has been dry I have been cutting and splitting all my wood. Right now everything on my property firewood wise is up off the ground. My tractor path is open so I ready to keep moving wood and replacing stacks as I feel.

    They're calling for a high of 88 here today with the humidity at 61 % and the dew point at 73%, we have a nice breeze out but the deer fly are really bad. I'll start back up after when it cools down some.

    Was in St. Mary's County today (as far south in Maryland as you can go). 99 degrees and we were between tidal Potamac and Chesapeake for cooling. Nothing wood cutting related going to be done this week with same temps.

    We haven't had any high winds so far, if the weather allows, tomorrow I'll get another stacking area ready for two face cord of some seasoned soft & hard maple.

    We had some storms come through last night and I was called in today for some storm work. A little south of me was banged up pretty good. We will see what this cold front brings with it.

    Been on the 16's since last Wednesday, hopefully today is the last day of this nonsense, although severe wx is forecasted with the front here.
