I haven’t burnt firewood for about 12 years, but I would make a round stacks. You can get an incredible amount of wood in a small space. Like you, I laid the wood on skids, and not the ground.

Hi GM Man,
I might drive to Grand Falls for a stick of Bird’s Eye Maple. I know of a house across the river from Moncton, that has all Bird’d Eye Maple trim, door frames, window trim, baseboard etc.
