loose split firewood logs set for drying
Being able to use a wood burner in wintertime is a real boon. There is a plentiful supply of this natural resource fuel available but it does need to be dried properly before it can be used to full effect. Gather your winter fuel in the good weather of summer before or after your vacation. The time to collect and season the green wood is important because it needs to dry out and be free of greenness before burning in winter. High grade wood is dried professionally and used for furniture making or as handles for tools, hurley sticks and cricket bats.
