EWP Logs
« on: January 08, 2019, 08:30:22 AM »
Anybody near Carver, MA looking for some pine logs.  Have a guy who has some at his mom,s place in Carver, MA.  They are uprooted blow downs from last spring.  Have been fully limbed.  He reports 4 full length (40Ft?) 20"+ diameter that can be cut to any length and 2 larger diameter 10 ft lengths.  Just wants to get rid of them, you would have to be able to load and haul out.  I am considering but 1.5 hour from my place and may not get to it.

It`s a shame but I can`t begin to tell you how many thousands of bdft of the nicest blowover pines went into the tub grinders from this summers storm, I`ve got a good 8 thousand ft before I realized some will rot before I get to it. This was just from one college campus, there were two adjoining state parks that had equal damage, everything went to the grinders

Same thing happened in southern Maine back in '98 after the ice storm.

There are still thousands of these trees on public and private property all over the place around me from 2011 & 2012 hurricanes Irene and Sandy.  Pine degrades beyond milling pretty quick but will lay around as en eye sore looking depressing for decades.  :( People around here won't touch it for firewood either, even for outdoor wood boilers so cleanup ends up being too expensive for landowners without heavy equipment and space to dump it.

I don't understand people that won't burn pine.  I have a wood fired boiler in the basement, and I burn quite a bit of pine in it.  As long as it's dry, it's not a problem.

You hear "creosote" as the excuse but I think it is really just laziness.  Too many trips up and down the stairs or whatever.

I suppose it depends on what's available. Here oak and ash are readily available for firewood. Seems silly to use anything else. It would just be more work for the same amount of heat.

I grew up knowing you could not burn pine without a guaranteed chimney fire followed by the collapse of your house and barn. Now I burn pine . ::)

In our province we burn jack pine. We have dropped it from our firewood list as it was getting hard to find someone to bring the logs and we could get birch for nearly the same price. But as fall and spring firewood it was hot enough to work.

  • I guess we could ask Stan from Yukon Men, but I think the only thing they burn in Alaska, is primarily soft woods, cause that is what grows there.  The nice thing with denser wood, is it tends to retain a good coal bed longer.  We burn cottonwood in a fireplace, but not in a stove.  The first is ornamental, the latter is to heat your home all night and start up easy in the am.  People have ruined stoves burning Hedge since it is dense and burns long and hot.  Catalpa is light a smells good, but tends to pop, so can be a problem in an open fireplace.  So It is regional and over the years people migrate to the best option available.  I have removed 9 cottonwood trees from my property..I split it for my Dad who used to love to sit and watch TV, with a fire going in the fireplace.  He could get up every 20 minutes or so and put a couple more logs on the fire.  When they went to bed, the fire was essentially out in 2 hours.  Dry wood has a universal BTU per unit weight.  So less dense wood by definition take up more space per unit weight.  If all you have is pine, it sure beats freezing to death. cut_tree

   I did a project in the Gobi desert in Mongolia and my wife and took a vacation up through central and northern Mongolia up to the Russian border. All I saw anybody burn over there was pine. The only hardwood I ever much of there was some small birch but I don't remember people cutting it. I guess historically the herders burned camel, horse and yak manure more than wood. The gers (Yurts) were heated with a small sheet metal stove in the middle of the tent. They could take the top insert out and put a big wok looking pan in there to cook with.

I have seen some lumber that was accompanied by the certification form that was #2 or better that I would not have used for a woodshed. As the building inspector I told the owner/builder that it was not acceptable for use as rafters. As a logger the logs he had sawn would have been pulpwood, not saw logs, there were 6" knots in a 2x8. He insisted he could use the lumber because he had the certificate. I went to visit the sawyer and found he had never given the person the certificate and insisted that when he sawed the lumber he told the person it should only be used for siding. Turns out the certificate was forged by the owner/builder.

Kinda far to go from Missouri, but Id love to mill some white pine.  Years ago before I had a mill we had a tornado take down a huge white pine.  Killed me to see it go to waste.

In Missouri people wouldnt dream of burning pine in a fireplace.  Creosote and all, but I walkways knew that people burned pine in the west where they had no Hardwoods.
