I'm approaching my first winter relying on a wood burning stove as the sole heat for the house, so have become a bit obsessed with any fallen wood I see. The strong winds this week deposited three fairly large ash trees pretty close to my house
With the farmers expressed permission, I tidied one up into my car, probably wrecked the rear springs, and spent the evening with the chainsaw and splitter. Feeling very manly right now.
The largest bits were about a foot diameter, and I've quartered them. How long till they're good to burn please? I'm keeping them under a a tarp outside, decent airflow around.
