I also ran into a problem with the firewood. I got alot of my firewood already cut, I just had to split it, haul it home, and stack it. My wood stove takes logs up to 18" long. I noticed some of the wood is longer than it should be. I thought I threw that in a different pile, and chopped it all in half. Boy was I wrong, I am finding out alot of the wood is 2 to 4 inches too long. I now have 2 stacks like this that need recut. Damn I thought I was done cutting wood for the year!
