mellowed wood...

Postby Andy Coates » Thu Jun 26, 2008 6:15 pm

I have indeed. In fact, I have somebody coming over in the next few weeks to remove several ton of "I'll let it lay a while and then try it" wood that's simply not suitable despite the "settling down" period.

I think a lot of the problem with some wood species here in East Anglia is related to water and the speed of growth, which itself relates to good fertile land. Too wet, too rich, and consequently too much summer growth.

Give me a tree that's had to work at its girth!

Fascinating ... and that's when having a log burner is an advantage!
