    It happens mainly because I process either a tree at a time or a group of trees. I also keep firewood separated due to different drying rates for each species. Red Oak and Hickory are OK together because they dry about the same rate i.e. 3 years. Ash, Hackberry, Black Walnut - also good together because they are all ~2 year firewood. Poplar is GTG after one year and is pretty much solid gasoline after 3-5 years. It would make no sense to store Red Oak/Hickory wth Poplar due to differences in drying times.

    The thing I keep in very strict control are Hardwoods that I use for smoking meats: Mainly Shagbark Hickory, Red Oak and Black Cherry.

    Here is my 10x12' old shed I use for nothing but smoking meats. It's full of Hickory (left) and Black Cherry (right) with some Red Oak mixed in.

      You should be able to edit your own post. Let me know if it doesn't allow that for some reason.

          Post #11 gave me an "Unapproved" label and wouldn't let me fix it. A message said it suspected a spam post, hence requring approval. It was in a shade of light green as well.

          All good now.
