Every year that we try to get our firewood in, we always look for dead trees. Sometimes (like now) we're in the middle of winter and still getting our wood in. While trying to chop wood today, I suggested that we should try to be smarter next year: cut and chop green wood in the spring and dry it through the summer. My wife says that dry wood is easier to chop because it's more brittle. I remember chopping some green wood back when I was a kid and that seemed pretty easy. But we're both just guessing. Anybody know the answer to this one?
