Mushrooms On Norway Maple Firewood - October 2023
Do you have a pile of Norway Maple firewood laying around? Processed (into rounds) or unprocessed. Split or unsplit. I don't think it matters.
What doesn't matter, Jake?
I don't think it matters if you've done everything you can to Norway Maple firewood to get it dry and seasoned. You'll still have some fungus growth. See below for a peek at the mushrooms that are growing on some of my Norway Maple that I've been working through since last Fall:
We had this large Maple tree taken down last Fall and I started to split the rounds immediately. I've worked through a bunch of it (not all, though) in the 12 months since. I've stored the wood up on racks to keep it off the ground and it hasn't mattered. I've even measured the moisture content.
Note...this pile is NOT covered. But, it still gets mushrooms.
#20 on my 2023 to-do list was to finish processing this wood. Have I done that? Nope. But, I was able to get a bunch of it done. This post shows the current state of this wood in back. The 'found' maul worked well...until I snapped the handle. Now I'm back to my splitting axe and it isn't getting the job done.
