used to burn wood for heat...loved it. Nothing like wood heat. I liked cutting firewood too. Did most of it in the fall and winter. Never started the year with enough. Good times......

We cannot continue to do the same things and expect different results

I tried to burn some of the rail tie ends that are green but it takes so much energy to burn the moisture that little to no heat is given off the stove. I will just split it and stack for next year.

i thought rail ties were soaked in creasote?

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

joel these are the non-treated cutoff ends of the ties prior to treating them. The good part is they are square, but vary in length. I had to saw many of them to fit my fireplace insert. Once they are air dried they will burn nicely. Just got to get out and split them.
