I know what I’d do with it…... I’d stack it 4 ft. high, 2 ft. deep by 8 ft long….maybe 16 ft. long

Stack in a nice row, let it dry out good, and burn in the fireplace this coming winter… Just like I did mine…

After our winter ice storm here 2 Januarys ago, I lost several big oaks, a couple of walnuts, and some hickory.

Hated to cut the hardwoods up, but had no choice…We were out of power for 9 days..Glad I had it….

Looks like good wood, what is it, about 5 cords? I have ordered mine but don’t have it yet. I’m hoping my two older grandsons and the wood arrive about the same time.

That’s the biggest pile of future tool handles, candlesticks, bowls, whistles and who knows what else that I’ve seen today!

That would look better in my driveway.

If you are a turner, I see a lot of potential in that pile for you. I also see a lot of firewood.

It’s all maple and I have 4 cords, here a cord is 24’ long 4 ft high and 16’ deep then you 96 ft of fire wood.
Now all the bird’s eye maple will not bunt it will go in my shed, if any one whats some come and get you’re welcome.
By the way it is $200 a cord in my driveway split.
Oil would cost me $2500, compare to $800
