I love cutting up trees and splitting them for winter... I just took down a little Black Walnut (I think) yesterday, and a Black Cherry over the past few weekends. Anyone who can see the wood, please correct me if I'm wrong, I'm not too knowledgable in forestry... But man, that Black Walnut has a gorgeous grain and smells great when split. I wish I knew what it was before I cut it up, or I'd have left a couple long pieces and tried to mill them to make a plaque or stool or something... Hey Thunder, how long do you let a tree "season" before burning it, after you cut it down and split it?
