    I find the best firewood is old telegraph poles. They are easy to cut with the chainsaw and being treated with creosote burn really well.
    Just don't stick your head over the chimney top.

    They also split beautifully for kindling.

    Telegraph poles!! Yikes!!!

    I used to cut the pallets we had for our woodburner with a circular saw too. Super quick!

    Just following this up, I bought the evolution saw and gave it a try for the first time today. It certainly goes through them like butter! Only minor complains are that the blade guard sometimes snags on the pallet making it difficult to cut (though that's probably because it's designed to cut flat sheet wood, not naily pallets! :)) and second, it's damn heavy! It's not like cutting normal wood where the weight of the tool is resting on the wood, you're constantly moving about, trying to get between slats etc. My arm is bloody sore after cutting up just three!

    One of these does the trick for me.
