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......

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.

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.
