Seasoned walnut

cutting up a fallen walnut tree for fire wood

It only took us about 40 minutes to cut up half of that walnut tree.

We stacked the small stuff in the trailer so it might dry out a little faster.

I think it's still good and hard due to the amount of struggle in the chainsaw.

Another year or two and it might be too rotten.

What's your plans for that wood? Just to burn?

I know it seems a bit wasteful to burn high quality walnut. At the same time, that's the hardwood we have on our property --- our floodplain is too wet for the usual contenders (oak, etc.) And we've got scads of walnuts. So, yup, firewood.
