Go Green and Save Money on Your Farm

Here on our farm, my husband and I have chosen wood as our sole source of heat. Our house is kept warm and cozy by the wood stove in the living room.

Fortunately, we have about 30 acres of forest, so there's never a shortage of firewood. Now, you don't need to own 30 acres of woods to be self-sufficient in firewood. In most regions of the United States a woodlot of three acres is adequate. If available land is limited, firewood can be grown along roads, streams, edges of fields, stone fences, property lines or surrounding the house, as a windbreak or privacy screen. A small woodlot that is well planned and properly maintained is far more productive (per acre) than a large one that is neglected.

The mental attitude with which you approach the woodlot will determine how much firewood you can get from it. Many wood burners unconsciously see themselves as "hunters and gatherers" rather than producers of firewood. As a result, they cruise through the woods, chainsaw in hand, hunting only for their most-favored species (say, oak) and gathering everything they can find of burnable size in those species.

To get into the mindset of being a producer of firewood, I think it's helpful to conceive of the forest as an "energy orchard". Generally speaking, the principles and practices of managing a fruit orchard apply to the woodlot, whether you're planting a new one or improving an existing stand of trees. Your goal is to produce a continuous supply of trees that is self-sustaining far into the future. To do this, you need to assure that the amount of new growth each year is at least equal to the amount harvested as fuel.
This means, first and foremost, that you need to know about - and care about - the ecology of the forest. The ideal "energy orchard" consists of a wide variety of trees of all sizes and ages. It contains seedlings of many species just beginning to grow, as well as mature trees ready for cutting. There should be an even distribution of trees in varying stages of growth, so that the harvest can be continuous year in and year out.

In addition to having a variety of trees of differing ages, the plot should include a mixed planting of species with different rates of growth.This will provide a measure of insurance against an attack of insects and diseases that could wipe out an entire forest if planted to a single species. The spacing between trees should be sufficient to give access to sunlight, but not so spread out that space is under-utilized, or that "wolf" trees - with widespread, dense foliage - prevent other trees from developing.
