I know that pruning trees is done when the trees are dormant to prevent damage to the tree, but I did not know that this would make for better wood for our chinnie friends to chew on. I have my own apple trees but they are on the small side and I can only take a little each year, and then have to look to other sources to resupply. But being this is optimum time to prune, and I haven't any snow on the ground, I shall go get my supply now.

Riven - how much longer do you need to bake the wood? At 200 or 250 degrees?

I don't time my wood, I usually do it at 225 until the inside of the wood begins to get little cracks, with this stuff being so wet I've been running it longer, it's been figuring about 2 batches a day, so probably about 4 hours +?
