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.



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...

Here's the stack for 2013/2014. Approximately 3 cord in there.



Last year's splitting location. It moves around. :D

My growing wood pile. It's about 4 cords in this picture. I've got a couple more that are split that I need to stack.
