We cut mostly rounds 16-18" long. We brought them back to my house to split.
We were considering going back up there in the summer, and making it a two day event with a campout. We want to bring a splitter, and an ATV to skid the logs to a central point.
We were discussing how efficient it is to split wood right at the spot where you fell it. And how it stacks up comparatively in a rack. Say, take enough rounds to fill up a 4x4x8 frame, then split it and see if the stack is higher or lower. We all agreed that it would be nice to leave all the mess in the woods, and that it would be somewhat less handling doing it that way.
What are the facts?
