Having wood stockpiled is a must. It will heat your house if the power goes out. Cook your food, and bring you some relief if SHTF. Now, stacking the wood…. Thats a whole different kettle of fish!
I have a wood pile in my back yard and I will be honest! I do not stack it and I know for a fact that a lot of it is probably junk now! Rotten and soaked.
