If you own a bar in Alaska, they go down on floor to catch the spit. But I compost mine, It depends on the type of wood, as alder is very high in it PH. Cedar and teak are oily, Doug Fir breaks down in a couple of months and seems to be a great soil conditioner for my clay soil. The doug fir I just spread it around the garden and till it in. I have a couple of compost piles for different types of wood, and In time it will all break down.
