I just cut down a 60ft. Ash. Not split- about 3-4 cords. It's stacked at the back of my yard- about 100yds. to the road. I don't want my yard torn up (soft, now, from all the rain), but if someone wants to haul it to their truck, make an offer.

This is the stacking, so far. There's a bit more.

There is an outfit on 107 shortly up from the bypass intersection that i believe that sells small batch kiln-dried and split firewood.

Sniff around, i'm sure there's bound to be a warm body on here that has more details.
good luck

I think this is who you mean. I have no experience with them.

Province kiln dried.

Thanks Dave & Downeast. Will check them out. Have been burning wood for the past 35 years back in NYS and only once had to buy a couple of cords a few years back. There was always some trees falling in the woods behind the house with the storms. Surprisingly, firewood is significantly more expensive here than in Orange County NY. (As I am sure you are aware, everything in NY State is more expensive than here, as they are inclined to tax even the air you breathe). For reference, you can get pretty well seasoned wood, 1 year, in the $175-200 range delivered. I think it may be a factor of more people burning wood up here.

I've been burning almost exclusively pine for a couple years. Easy to split, dries quickly, light to carry, and FREE.

Pine is not recommended in my Hearthstone stove. IMHO, I'd only burn pine in a firepit or similar outside fire. For a woodstove, oaks, maples, ash, some birch, and any other hard wood. Best heat value, and properly seasoned, less creosote build up.

I have a Hearthstone, and the proof is in the pudding: as a result of mistaken record keeping, I just had my stove/liner cleaned after four years of almost exclusively burning pine and was told they were both exceptionally clean. Don't forget, many areas of the country only have access to pine/soft wood.

"Myth #3: Burning certain soft woods (such as pine) will cause creosote damage to your chimney.

While this myth has been around for ages, studies conducted by the University of Georgia found that the amount of damage wood left on the chimney was a result of low-temperature fires rather than a resin rich fuel source. While pine does contain more sap than other types of wood, this is no longer considered to be cause of creosote buildup in chimneys. Wood that does cause problems though is burning green wood or burning fires at low-temperatures. Regardless of your choice of wood, it is very important to only use dry and seasoned wood to burn in your fireplace. Always remember that properly seasoned wood takes about one year for wood to properly dry out. Dry wood is more of a concern than hard versus soft wood when choosing what to burn."

I burn what ever is available and dry. I usually use the pine when starting the fire and while I'm home and up because it burns faster and require more loading. When I go out or go out for a while or to bed I load it with hard wood. It will last much longer so less reloading. I try to burn around 500 to 600 degrees which usually gives a pretty clean burn.
I just demoed my bathroom so I have a lot of dry pine studs to burn, nails and all.

Agree that a lower temperature is the major contributor to creosote buildup

One way to tell if you are running the stove too cold is if the glass in the door (if the stove has a window) gets fouled with brown-black gunk that is difficult to remove. A sufficiently hot fire will leave the glass clean, even burn off the gunk from a prior use with the temperature too low. Any thin film of ash is easily cleaned with a dampened piece of paper towel. Another indication of too low a stove temperature is visible smoke from the chimney well after starting the fire.

This one made me laugh as many years back, living elsewhere and burning with an old Upland woodstove, It was a vey cold night and the stove was ripping hot.

I decided to clean out the refrigerator...

There was this fully wrapped thanksgiving turkey that has been in the fridge for "quite some time". Yep, I opened the door and stuffed that butterball right in!

That fully uncooked turkey sure did give off some BTU's once she came to temp LOL!


Ile never forget my neighbor dropping by to say it smelled like KFC outside!

Soft pine or butterballs

Before Thankgiving I saw a report that a frozen turkey can explode if put into a deep fryer and the video of it was frightening. I would think a frozen turkey may do the same thing if put into a wood stove, although you did say "uncooked", not frozen.
