    My land has a mess of standing dead white pine, some of it sizeable. I dropped one, cut a few rounds and split it out to 19% on the MM. It also has a good stand of living pine too. I haven't brought myself to process too much of it since I was working on building stacks of hardwood. I know its a good wood, but I just need to find the time to start getting it cut and split out. I figure worse comes to worse, I can sell it on craigslist by the truckload as camp wood. Right now I have been working on every dead Ash, these sticks of what I think is hard maple that is also dead and de-barked, and fallen Red oak that is dead and dry.

    Enough of my ramble, I had a thought and wandered off it quick without remembering the actual point I was going to make.... :crazy::baaa:

    Amen to that! I removed 4 of them I had planted some 30 years ago (growing up into power line), had some good sized trunks. Figured it would burn about like gasoline. Nope, burned like a good hardwood.

    I moved a small stack of pine into the garage to keep it dry ahead of the remnants of hurricane Patricia that blew through here the last couple days. Now the garage smells like somebody has cleaned it with Pinesol...or dropped off a load of Pine lumber...I like it

    I agree.

    I also like that clean, although sometimes extremely strong smell that occupies the stove house after I load it with fresh cut/split tamarack.

    I burn pine. I burn it hot and usually only dampen down 1/2 way. But usually run wot. Puts out good early season heat. I usually season only for a few months. But I burn it hot so no problems here.

    Touche. I run wide open 90% of the time. If I do dampen it down it is no more than 1/2 way.

    I just cleaned up some dead locust that had fallen. I usually leave that for my emergency standing dry wood if I run out late season, but when they fall I cut them.

    Anyhow back to burning, I brought in about 4 wheel barrow loads of thumb sized locust sticks that I'm burning as I type. I cut them with the electric saw as I feed them in the stove.

    Sometimes I mix green pine with something like seasoned maple or something. Works good.

    My shoulder season wood is black cherry and elm. Yes. I am spoiled and I will readily admit it.

    Well, I buzzed up close to a cord of pine slab wood a couple days ago,

    [​IMG]

    and it's all headed to my basement wood burning furnace to make heat, I've never heard my stove complain even one time, because pine was going in it!

    AND "I" don't have any complaints either!
