    I try to keep my woodpile as clean as I can get it and keep the area around the wood pile clean too. Who ever has the nicest/cleanest looking woodpile, I will send them some free stickers :)

    Post away!

    I keep my wood sorted by species & the area neat enough to work efficiently, but I won't win any contests

    I wont win any awards either. I live in the city and have a lack of space so I got wood in a few small areas....including driveway and couple feet from house (i know....beware of insects).

    I'll take some pics later and post.

    Like I said, I live in the city and due to space issues.....i have wood spread out in currently 4 places. Not pretty but oh well.

    This pic holds 4 facecords with a 2' gap space between the rows. 2 rows behind are fresh ash and in the front are 2/3 cords black locust, almost a left over facecord of cottonwood from last winter and some pear on top of each. I plan on using the cottonwood up this coming winter. This faces south so it gets good sun most of the day.

    This is what I split yesterday and today. 2 facecords of partially seasoned (not sure what it is). Left cord is a couple ft from house and back one is along driveway. These get partial sun at diff times of the day. I think Im gonna let this be and hopefully it will be ready for this coming winter. I got these and about another 1/2 fc for $35 the other day. Before and after pics. I made 1 mistake with the left fc, i forgot to lay down boards underneath......oh well.

    Backyard shot. I refuse to shrink my garden so back fence line (west) will hopefully get filled upby the fall. I should be able to fit another 3.5 fc's along the fence. To the right are where the 4 fc's are located.

    View attachment 234476

    I go through only maybe 3 fc's a winter....so I am trying to get 2-3 years ahead.

    Sorry is the pics dont come out as planned......this site is the worst for adding pics I have ever joined :(

    Here ya go...

    I'm not TOO embarrassed by these stacks of Oak. They're not the "laid out w/ a transit" stacks that others have posted before, but so what. For me, it's all about having nice wood that's dry. If the stacks don't fall over, that's a bonus. Most or all of this will be sold, about 5 1/2 cords here. View attachment 234482

    What can I say? I was out of pallets when I came into this wood last Summer/ Fall. There's nothing wrong w/ a big pile of Black Locust, stacked or not. I'm guessing 5 cords of splits & another cord of rounds. View attachment 234483

    Locust logs from a score I got last month. Yuengling bottle for scale (or if I ever have occasion to do you a favor, a hint on what flavor I like my thank yous). I thought Stella would be "pushing it"! Hard to tell from the pic, but probably about 3 cords here View attachment 234490

    The first pic is when I just cut up some bucked logs into stove length for the stove one day, nothing special.

    The second pic is of my equipment is out in Linneus, Maine. We had a job getting pulp wood. We did the whole job in a matter of few days. Gotta love that John Deere skidder too :msp_smile:

    That there be 10 cord of White (Bur) Oak... 2 cord to the stack.

    I'll be adding another 8-10 cord soon this spring... oak, hard maple and ash all in the woodlot waiting to be split.
