World's biggest wood yard?

Recommended Posts

The largest I've been aware of was put up on here a few years ago; it's in Norway and it's ridiculous

I'm sure there are lumber yards way bigger than this is the dozens, I used the term wood yard which is common here to describe a firewood lot. Its not a tip site in a sense that its for others to come and drop off, it is this company's own tip site for no purpose except for removing wood from sites ehre they cut the trees and having it available to "woodys" to come by and take away firewood for themselves.  If they have lumber for milling still on site, that wood is buried and as of recent, definitely not set up for incoming and outgoing trunks. They have a log burner in their shop so they split some for use in it.


Well that’s clear as mud.

It’s not a tip site, but it is a tip site.
It’s a wood yard, but it’s not a firewood yard.
It’s a lumber yard, but it’s not a lumber yard.

I think this is one of those riddles.

The answer to how much firewood is there is the trick.

It’s either none as the wood is taken away to turn into firewood elsewhere or it’s the amount they can fit into the firebox of their log burner!

The part of the docks in Portland Australia that deals with timber is about 75 acres according to Google Earth. That is the biggest pile of logs I have ever seen.

why are they spraying water on them 

To preserve the wood, traditionally they would have dumped them in a lake but when that's not possible they get sprayed.
