To live outside urban area is a challenge. You have to cut firewood for the next winter or sometimes for the winter to come a year later. I started to day cutting some firewood north of the Nordmarken Canoe Center. In the afternoon I started to split it so it will dry faster for the winter to come.
No- I´m joking a bit- the big clear cut is some real big machine cutting timber. But the pail of wood is for the coming winter to our timber house. It must dry at least 6-8 month before use. Cut in the forest must be done in February and split before month of May and in the barn before midsummer, so is the rules for having good firewood next winter. The one who preparer will “survive” a golden rule in the wilderness.
