We had a truckload of tree trunks delivered to out house last week. Call us crazy, but this winter we're going to try to heat the house with wood, mostly. We'll still have oil as a backup, but it's just too darn expensive. And I like to stay warm.
Now I know why a cord of seasoned wood is so costly-- it's a ton of work to cut and split! (But hubby loves any excuse to pull out the chainsaw.)
So here's a question-- how would you explain to a non-english speaking person why you cut a tree "down" but you cut the wood "up?"
