    I burn them all, but most of next year's wood will be sugar maple. I had one dying sugar that I had to take down last fall because A new shop I was getting would have been in jeopardy. That tree was no longer good to make saw logs or I'd have sawed them. So far I've cut and split maybe 1/4 of the tree and about half that much again will fuel my evaporator for the next season. I will also be burning some hemlock slab off my sawmill.
    Dave Klish about 1320 taps in '15, down to about 700 in '16, up to 1000 for 2019?

    Popple burns super hot for sure.... but it take a long time to dry. If you have your wood done by June you will be fine it you wait until November you might have to turn the blower up.
