The coldest months of the season are just around the corner, and you’re going to want a cache of easy-burning fuel to keep the cabin snug. Trouble is, a stack of freshly split firewood has to dry and season for a year before you can burn it efficiently and without creosote buildup in your chimney. So now is the perfect time to prepare those trees you took down this year for next year’s firewood. Split and stack and you’re on the way to providing your own source of warmth for next year.
