CART subsequently came and cut it down completely. It was roughly shared out, most taking a fair share, one taking a complete load ! After some chain saw action my share fitted into my trusty barrow to be brought back to the cottage as I had no where to store it on the new mooring when we moved.
Now spring forward to November 2019 and my boo boo over the oil. I decided to light the fire today 26th Nov about an hour before the oil delivery arrived - top timing however after getting the multifuel settled on Excel I went to the workshop and pulled out the last of the Fradley wood...
Leia certainly approved - she adopted the position as soon as the fire started giving heat out.
I expect to have got through the last of the Fradley wood tonight.... the date above when the wood was cut shows the wood I am burning is well seasoned, spot on two years. Not sure what the tree was (not my forte) but is very dry but still quite dense so an ideal combination.
Free fuel, somewhat offsets the cost of the expensive mooring (relative to where we are now) plus I understand burning wood is as good as it gets for the environment in heating terms.
