Wood shed capacity

We got our wood shed past the half way mark this week.

There's still a lot more fallen tree material to cut up which has got us to consider building wood shed number two in the Fall.

What kind of wood do you have in there?

Eric --- I seem to have overlooked your comment --- sorry! Most of the wood is tulip-tree (aka tulip poplar or yellow poplar). It's not a really hard wood like oak, but is copious here and easy to split and burns hotter than box-elder (our most common tree). And it grows fast, so you get huge rounds like this after only a few decades.
