Been burning cedar for the last couple of weeks but it's goin' to -7C tonight but lucky me, I found some nice 3 year old maple 6-8'' splits in the middle of the pile - hoping to 14- 16 hours out of it tomorrow...

We've had rain/ sleet in the last day with 31* for a high, so I'm using some 2-year-old honey locust that was standing dead back then. It don't get much better than that.... for me

After snow a couple days ago, I shut her down today. Got a spike of a warm day into the 70s., supposed to drop back down the next few days. We shall see. On a side note, I got a local tree company to drop me a load of logs today. I came home to find it dumped. I'm pumped to get working on it.

Stove belly is full of basswood. Yes, you heard that right - basswood. Loaded it full at 7:00 this morning and I expect to be reloading at about 11:00. I don't let much of anything go to waste around here. Maybe I should take up whittling...

Cherry and Maple. Just when winter looks like it’s gonna quit, she strikes back. Maybe another snow storm this week? Loaded another cord into the basement today to be safe

Day time temps have been in the 30s-40s with the nights in the 20’s so I’ve been mixing my loads with oak and sassafras. I have to say I like the sassafras. It puts on a great flame show with awesome secondaries and I’m still getting 12-14 hour burns with the big splits of oak in there as well.

I like sassafras too. Cuts easy, dries fast, smells great. It's good stuff!

I have been burning sugar maple seasoned two years. I use pine to get the fire going. Waiting on a bunch of cherry to season. Will be ready to burn by august of 2018. Can't wait as I have never burned cherry before.:)

Can’t believe I’m saying this on this 18 degree April 8 but a full load of 3 year old cedar. Not bad for this extended shoulder season we’ve been having.

I cut a small standing dead black cherry about a month ago, not for the wood, but just because it needed to come down. It had no bark on it with about an inch of punk all the way around. I didn’t want to touch next years wood so I threw the black cherry rounds into the stove. I did a fresh split test, the center came to 18%. Still better than burning oil!
