Chopping wood in January 2017

p1071281a

Winter is the season to ‘hibernate’, even for trees…
The cold makes the trees less active, and subsequently, there is less need to draw up water to feed their trunks…
Less water equals less weight, which means, this is right time to fell the trees…

On this occasion, we were very fortunate to be asked by a lady living nearby, to help her cut the trees in her property…
I looked at the trees, and mumbled ‘oh my, these are oak’…
They are super solid, heavy to carry, and they are one of the best wood for the stove…

Come evening, my sweeto-haato lights up the wood stove…
She uses the stove-top for cooking as well…
And wooh, the ambiance… and the warmth emitting from the stove… heavenly…

  1. At least there still are wood to chop there for the fire. We just use smaller branches in the province for cooking some food that needs a little more time. But trees are now not allowed to be cut, because our original forests are already gone, now just reaping the outcome of deforestation; flooding and silting.

    • Luckily for Japan, there has been some good policies on re-forestation… some areas near our place are protected forests, and it is so nice to walk there…
