Stoking up son's wood burning stove. Added a piece of willow about 2 inches in diameter. Returning with larger chunk of wood was surprised to find the willow bubbling sap from the cut end. Willow came from wood cut and stacked over a year previous. Next day son complained that he had to air out his house when he returned from work due to the wood smell.BigBill wrote:I took 7 cords of firewood off a willow tree. I let it sit for 3 years to dry out some what. The smell was so bad i only burned it after 12am at night.

Burn black walnut, although do not cut down a growing tree. Interesting enough I skid out downed and dead trees from the property for fire wood. I have found several long, medium diameter, black walnut logs that appear to have been logged and not removed. Other than minor rot on the bottom the logs were still in good condition. Guessing the logs have been laying on the ground for 30 or more years.daddydip wrote:If your burning Walnut it had better be well seasoned.

Taking a class tomorrow in removal and eradication of eastern red cedar, a weed tree in this area. Retail price for red cedar lumber is $5.++ or more per board foot, on the internet.Rudi wrote:My God .. that stuff is worth it's weight in gold to a furniture maker.
