    It's 74 degrees in my house at this moment thanks to a load of Madrone in the wood stove. The wood sellers get 300 a cord for seasoned Madrone in Oregon. Jeff

    Gordy, when I was doing custom stocks I tried Madrone as it was plentiful in our area. The only problem semed that it checked a lot. An old timer told me you had to cure it in water which sounds strange until you realize that they cured Yama Wood in salt water to stop it from checking. Anyway, good luck.
