You folks mainly having woodlots or tracts in the northwoods around beaver ponds might relate to this. Across a pond over the past years, the Beavers have downed some fairly large poplar trees. Now these are striped of the big brances and some of it can be cut up and used for firewood. I'm thinking next season to try retreiving some to burn for wood fuel in the outdoor furnace. Question I have is that some of this is laying about 8 years. It's dry. Once cut and stacked next year (I can't do it this year), but it's tractor fuel going back and forth once the it's frozen over. I usually could haul a 1/2 cord load per trip. There may be several cords on the ground so far. It would just go to waste or be flooded if the beavers raise the pond water level anyway.
