A Real Wood Heat Thread (No Robots Allowed)

This is the place to debate politics, global warming, and yes, even the origin of man, whatever. Simply put, if you want to argue about off topic stuff, you've found the right board. Have fun!

Primary heat for my present abode in Vermont; an old Vermont Castings in the living room. The back up heat very seldom kicks in. Not my favorite stove, to be honest, but it works. A Vermont Stoveworks "Elm" was the sole heat for my cabin home in the Adirondacks for 20 years. Around here there's an abundance of hardwoods; I'm very fond of white birch but don't use it much for firewood... burns too quickly. Have great appreciation for the bark though, for many uses. Mostly cut a mix of yellow birch, maple, beech, and ash. Burn about four full cord a winter, both in this house, and when I was in the cabin.

Have my cutting done for this season, still have to split and stack it.
