I'm just getting wood for heating our house, not to sell. I have some wood down that I need to cut and split - maybe 3 cords. Mostly alder. Some of it is big enough to mill, so I may set some of it aside for the upcoming building project.
I have about an acre of young alders that I am thinking I can harvest continually if I cull it right over time. I'm not sure though. This year will be our first full winter on this property, so I will find out.
A few weeks back I bought a 3-pt log splitter from a guy for $350. We shook hands on the deal, but then when I went back to pay him, he changed his mind. It would have been a great deal.
