  1. It will go moldy if it doesnt have air to dry. If pulled out of water after submerging, it will get kiln dried or air dried, depending on local climate, I'm guessing
  2. I'm not 100% clear on context of what you guys over the pond use the term tip site, Whether that means a place for public use that is designated for that purpose, or if it just simply means a site to tip, no details. Either way it is some sort of tip site, but I know it as is their private place of business that they use for their own firewood and for people to pick up firewood so even if the wood is sitting there doing nothing, its still for firewood. They use it, I get some from there and others come for some, once again, intended purpose. No trick, no need to overthink and riddle own yourself
  3. 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.
  4. How many cubic meters of firewood do you estimate?
  5. I did a nature walk in two separate locations in Ontario's premier cottage country, the vast region of Muskoka. Lion's Lookout over Huntsville and High Falls in Bracebridge. Filmed with GoPro Hero 9 2.7K https://youtu.be/vfzLPMD1AHc
  6. What a great experience it was with Abdrew at Eastonmade. This brand of splittere is number one in North America. They are doing so well that the wait time for a machine is 1.5 years!
  7. I got him on camera but he seems a little reluctant so I didn't press him, but here's the video.
  8. I split some incessantly stubborn American elm for an Englishman, seems to be doing pretty well here in Canada. I have to go there and finish the job (stubborn wood) so I'll see if I can get him on camera for you guys. American elm grain is like cotton balls in fiberglass resin
  9. Sorry, meant to say I had a hookeroon before. It was too slow for moving split logs but should work out for me with rings. Because I get tree service wood, cutting into a large pile of all kinds of shapes and sizes of wood spreads cut rings all over the place so I can use the hookeroon to pull rings from the pile and centre them near the splitter easier
  10. I had one before and found it useless for logs so I got rid of it. I'll be getting a hookeroon soon for moving rings.
  11. Sometimes, yes, more so when that big diameter wood comes in trunk form. They're typically cut to size and I may have to cut off a few inches off of some of them but the 880 wood be great when I get big trunks. One time I had only 3 trunk sections which filled a 36.5 cubic meter bin.
