I’ve also started cutting some pine, with the intention of using it for kindling. Besides the actual hard wood for the fire, we go through tons of kindling. I generally use leftover pine scrap from whatever building project is going on, and there has been enough to get us through the Winter. Also, I raid the scrap box of the local lumber yard and take whatever they’re going to burn anyway, but it’s a bit of a scramble, and it entails asking the lumber guys to take their garbage. I guess they don’t care, but it’s a little awkward.
Either way, we’ve got tons of pine lying around the property, and it’s easy enough to cut it into blocks and split the pieces into kindling. I can grab it whenever I feel like it, and it seems like the real-man way to get kindling. Then again, kiln-dried pine isn’t fill with pine-boring beetle grubs.
Until the next time, thanks for reading.
