We finally got around to using some of the wood I cut and split at the end of 2017. We don’t use the fireplace all that often, but with this being a playoff weekend I thought it would add a bit of warmth to the front room (my wife is the football fan). Note: it was 17°F here this morning where last January 13th it was 61°F!
We went through a lot of the fallen hickory, and a few pieces of choke cherry from a downed tree this past Spring. The hickory burned well; the cherry could have seasoned longer. In the end, though, it was all ashes ;o)
Some of the wood that was bucked, and my Homelite splitter
Wood cleared from my 2018 garden project. This will get bucked and split for next winter. There are plenty more scrubby trees and standing deadwood available as I try to reclaim overgrown areas.
Here are additional photos from the cutting: https://photos.app.goo.gl/YVvbmmy9E2rYkjAK8
