    I am building a stock to carry me though my declining years. None of this is for sale. All Black Locust most of which was killed by the Locust Borer.

    My current splitting area. I will be moving the splitting operation elswhere when that area is filled even with the stuff to the left. There are 8 ricks there so far. All my wood is piled rick tight against rick, no space between them. I keep my homemade cart there to toss in the bark/chips as I split then haul to the fire pile. Jusst did that today.

    Stuff to the left is the oldest since I started cutting nothing but B Locust. That was around '95 or 96.

    [​IMG]

    3 areas.
    Far one by fence is my next season's wood. Around 5 cords - that was cut back in mid 90s from a blowdown area.
    Rounds by fence is stuff waiting to be split - guestimate 6+ cords
    Left hand pile has 2 20' ricks of unsplit rounds plus 7 or 8 ricks containing 1.5 cord splits.

    More cut early in the B Locust era. Those piles go back some 20' to the garage/woodshed

    I figure 40 + cords total but suspect it would be much more.

    I can't think of a wood much better suited to long term storage than Black Locust...
    Good choice...:rock:

    I sold out everything I had by Christmas last winter... I only keep "special" stuff longer than a year...

    I like white oak also but, It makes life a little harder sorting through that stuff especially in the snow.

    I always dump and split the piles in the same central "processing" site, then move stack in another area of our land.

    Yes it is, All of that wood with the white bark is white birch. It burns real nice just like yellow birch too.
