This is taking 'grow your own' to new lengths for us!
We recently cut down some birch trees and stacked the wood to burn on the stove. (It made us realise how much land we would need if were to try to grow all our own fuel.) We live in a forested area and soft woods are abundant, but the slower growing, better burning hard woods are quite difficult to come by.
There is something very satisfying, both visually and emotionally, about a nice woodpile.
