EPISODE-73 CUTTING AND SEASONING FIREWOOD

Hello everyone,

today’s show is about cutting and seasoning firewood for use in a wood stove .there are some useful charts of the different types of wood.This is a rebroadcast of episode 22 and since its that time of year again i figured i would repost this episode for all the people that may be new to burning firewood.i think even if you have been burning wood for a wile you will probably still take away something from this show as well. so thanks for listening and enjoy the show.
