That there is some FINE firewood.
Wee Wee happens!
This White House? That is really not something to brag about.
I hope you are referring to the National Christmas Tree, and not my own.
Please do not offer it’s organs to the great god Woodstove until, well you know....LOL!
We burn salt cedar...and that is some fine, hard firewood!
Wee wee kills!
I seen much larger trees survive, and much smaller ones die, as a result of improper technique and especially, aftercare, or the lack of it.
Without close-up, careful inspection, it’s impossible to tell or even guess, IMO. But breaking-off so low to the ground usually indicates carpenter ants or a hollowed-out, weak main trunk. Again, a close-up inspection would give me a better perspective; without it, it’s not even a close guess.
No, honey locust is some of the hardest, highest BTU stuff around. Almost too hot, it’s beat mixed with other hardwoods. “Salt Cedar”?? Y’all ain’t from around here.. ;)
