Seems we just had a thread on that. At least similar, like years supply on hand or something.  ::)

No pics, but I am getting low. I should have enough for the rest of this year, and maybe half of next year. Even as mild as this winter has been, it seems we have used more than we did last year. Must have to do with getting older and liking it a little warmer.

Disappointing. I thought this was going to be a thread for figuring out cord/acre of a given forest, or how much firewood to expect from a top of a given size dbh tree, or something cool like that.

Oh well...... :)

I'm sure one of our foresters can figure cords per acre :)

Firewoodking, We sold out of seasoned wood around the first of the year! Since then we have been splitting by hand at various slow times and have about 40 cords put up. We just purchased 3 tri axle loads of good hardwoods to run through the processor plus our own stuff. We have gone over 200 cords this last season so far and could have sold more if we had it on hand! I,ll snap a couple of pictures when I get a chance. Tim

I think I'm in good shape.  I'll burn for about 6 weeks more, two months tops, and I've got plenty.  Just put up 3-4 cords for two winters from now.  I've learned my lesson, and really kick myself if I don't replenish at tis time of the year.  Once spring comes around, there's lots more to do.  So March is the month that I mark as the time to prepare for one winter away.  Since I burn a lot of oak, I plan for two years seasoning on it, one year on everything else.

I started the season with about 12 cords and will probably end up with 7 at the end of the season. I have about six cords cut and waiting to be split. We have had a lot of snow, so I have not been able to get as much done as I would like to. I do enjoy getting out and doing a little splitting with the maul during the winter months just to keep the old joints limber :D

I cut this firewood last week. I demoed a Dyna SC14 firewood processor and we cut approximately 60 cords of firewood.

Got about 110 cords cut and hauled home, maybe 50-60 more to cut. Wait to split it when the slave labour is home from school for the summer, we've got it about figured out now that the 9 and 6 year olds feed me blocks, I sit and run the splitter and the 4 year old throws the split wood off. The 10 year old is a hard case.

And on the opposite end of the spectrum , I've burned 4.5 cords and have 2.5 left. More than enough to get me through this season.

I've got exactly one face cord left of a pile of 5 cord of oak I burned from this winter .In a short while I'll go retrieve half of that to fill my rack in the garage .There's probabley another 12-15 cords stacked so far and at least that much not split and stacked .

Now I figured out that 600 cords and if I'm correct that would be about a quarter acre stacked a tad over 7 and a half feet high or a half acre at a  tad over 3 and a half feet .Pretty fair stack of wood I'd say .76,800 cubic feet .1200 standard pick up trucks loads or in my case with a Ranger 2400 .Probabley more than could be hauled in a week end .
