Firewood storage

Anna with firewood

Managing firewood gets a little easier for us every year.

We moved our firewood chopping and storage to the back working porch where the ground is drier and the wood gets stored a bit closer to the wood stove.

What is your seasonin GB time and rotation?

Jim --- We always aim for a year of seasoning, but never make it. I think six months for the earliest used wood of the year is more likely. Sometimes, that means the wood is still pretty damp when we burn it, but this tulip-tree dried fast (and burns pretty fast too).
