Firewood Processors

Reader Contribution by Troy Griepentrog

<p>Selectively thinning a woodlot is a sustainable practice, and not all of the trees will be suitable for lumber. <a title=”Heating with wood” href=”https://www.motherearthnews.com/renewable-energy/wood-heat/heating-with-wood-why-wood-heat-is-renewable-energy” target=”_self”>Heating with wood</a> is a good option for many people, and with proper equipment, cutting enough wood to heat your home and domestic water can be easier than you might think. </p>
<p>If you want some exercise, you can carry a saw and axe into the forest and, as the old saying goes, “warm yourself twice” (once while cutting the wood and later when you burn it). If you’re looking for a less strenuous option, you can cut and trim trees with a chain saw, then load long lengths of trunk or major limbs onto a firewood processor, and operate the controls while the machine cuts firewood into uniform lengths and splits it. </p>
<p>After watching some of these videos, you might even decide to start your own firewood business.</p>
