Jim told me to "go away"?

Recommended Posts

What do you think to this?




I made my polite enquiries as usual.


Admittedly I am a newbie. Regardless to say I did not pursue the enquiry any further.

Admittedly did also say:


Cordwood won't become firewood without a lot of effort.


By the time I have paid for the wood, a lorry, a decent chainsaw (not a B&Q Chinese special,) protective gear and possibly a training course, I won't have much change compared to the commercial price of wood and not only that it is mostly softwood.


Plus, all sorts of wildlife like living in big woodpiles. LOL


It's likely to be full of all sorts of knarly lumps that would be very difficult to split. Otherwise, you would have chunked it up and flogged it as logs or even sold it on to King Acre. There is also a fair amount of big stuff in it that you'd have a job getting through without a hydraulic splitter, and I don't mean one of those dinky little machine mart things - same goes for the chainsaw - a B&Q £80 special isn't going to deal with half of it.
