I'll burn oak in the furnace Mule. The Hemlocks are for campfire wood. The road that goes by the Southern side of my property leads up to a national campsite (about 3 miles away) and the campers drive by my road all day. I plan to put a small load of Hemlock out by the road where everyone that drives by can see it. (Advertisement ) The only other guy selling wood gets $25.00 for about 20 pieces of whatever he has the most of that day. In the spring, summer and autumn I can easily sell 5-10 loads of my Hemlock for $25.00 a load (about 30 split pieces). I'll deliver it to their campsite for an additional $5.00. Should be a couple of hundred bucks a day without too much trouble. And I have to cut up the Hemlock anyway, so I might as well seel it, right? The campers don't care if it's Pine or Hemlock as long as it burns and they can roast marshmallows.Squerly, if you plan on burning hemlock you better get used to splitting it down into small chunks. Should be aged at least 2 years also. Find a local store you can get cardboard boxes from and burn out the creosote regularly. It makes good heat but does not last as long.
