Late Winter in these parts.
A frugal New Englander will always recognize the value of heating their home with Birch, Maple, Oak or Hemlock. Here we are on perfect day when it snowed lightly all afternoon while we were cutting, hauling, burning tops/brush & stacking a load of next years firewood.
This wood was harvested about fifty feet or less from our house. It gives me some pride that I am using such a local renewable resource. Greatly reducing my reliance on the oil companies who pump their stuff out of the ground so many thousands of miles from here.
