The picture in the article look to be pines. The pines in this area are a shallow rooting trees and root out rather than deep down. I have harvested (for heat) a few dozen Ash in only a few years. They're dying and falling fast due to the Emerald Ash Borer. Unfortunately, the Ash tree has no rot resistance: It goes from standing to rotten in a short time. If it's seasoned and dry, it has plenty of heat. If it's been on the ground very long, it seems to take more btu to dry it than it produces. I've been doing my part reforesting the yard. A couple of weeks ago the neighbor in back wanted to cut down a pecan which was pushing their fence. I ended up letting him but got to keep the wood at least. 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
