Wood is something we think about a lot. Drag the wood. Split the wood. Stack the wood. Burn the wood. Taste the wood. Because we think we can, we think we can taste a difference between wood-fired maple syrup and oil fired maple syrup. It takes a lot of extra work and planning.
So even as the snow melts, the trees are thinking about budding, and we are thinking we might only have one or two more days to boil.... we are thinking about next season's firewood.
