Re: Couple pics from this summer....
I wish! It would have been a whole lot easier if it were. There was a day I worked that hard every day but its been awhile. When I bought the place in Dec. 2003 there was one row of punky cherry in there that I burned through in one or two weekends. I had to buy a load of wood to get through the first winter. I got five rows of seasoned beech along with a smattering of maple and a few sticks of cherry in there now (about two years worth). I get the $20 ANF firewood permit every year because there is good firewood laying everywhere up there that can be had with a little hard work. Most of the beech dies and stands for a year or two before it breaks off at a weak spot. Its already pretty much dried by the time it hits the ground and only takes a short time to be burnable. Some of the stuff from this haul I split and threw on the campfire outside to see how dry it was. There was no moisture at all in most of it and that beech burns like coal.
I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.
