    Default The Firewood tree

    I can't remember what type of tree it is, but I planted it for firewood because it coppiced and split really well.
    It is an Eastern Australian species and is rot resistant.
    Because it splits so well, I am thinking of having a go at splitting some of these larger logs. I'd like planks but quarter rounds would fit the bandsaw.

    Any tips on splitting? I've got lots of wedges.
