I picked up a trailer full 4x8 (about 1/2 cord) seasoned for $80, mixed hardwoods.
For those of you new to wood burning there are a couple of ways to tell if the wood is cured.
First look for cracks at the ends of the wood. No cracks stack it let the cold do it's work.
Another way is to split a piece or two and smell it, the inside will look darker and have a different smell then a exposed cured surface(not the bark).
I used to get alot of free wood from Utility line cutting and trimming! But haven't seen much of that lately, I have seen alot of tree grinder tucks using gas to make wood chips! Does this make sense? Anyone else notice this trend out there?
