Hard-wood VS Soft-wood
    #11165467 - 10/01/09 08:14 PM (8 years, 22 days ago)

Is there really a big difference between using hard-wood saw-dust verses soft-wood saw-dust? Also does it matter if the wood has been treated?

I would not use treated wood its treated with chromium copper arsenate. Its cancer causing and has anti fungal properties

Thanks everyone I think I understand why now haaha. Myc probably doesn't like sap :laugh:.

Well tommorrow I'm gonna bust up some hard-wood logs with an axe haha. Unless there's an easier way to obtain non-treated hard-wood.

If you can find wood pellet fuel.. thats the cheapest off the shelf bulk type of hardwood sawdust you can find too. Its a few bucks for like a 40lb bag. Wish I had that near me.. But anyway, just pasteurize the pellets, they fall apart into sawdust.. add the wood chips (like suggested above) makes a great hardwood sub. Good luck!

I haven't worked with a would lover yet, but I do believe you could inoc. aspen pet bedding with your starter grains and then go to wood chips. I read somewhere that oak and hickory are harder then say alder. It will colonize slower but oak and hickory will hold up longer. I am not 100% on that so if that isn't correct please correct me I don't want to put bad info out there.

if you have a to nof wood ready to chop up
i would rent a wood chipper from home depot
chip all of it
that way you will have chips for a long long time
plus it will save you all the time and hassle of doing it by hand

Where does one find these pellets?  And what about a semi hardwood like Baltic birch?  I've got plenty of that for my PA cabs that I build.  The bit of white oak I have is a bastard to cut.

I have always wondered about using Birch.. it is not available where I am now, but I used to be surrounded by it..

Home Depot sells wood pellets if it is something that sells in your area.. I am in So. Florida.. no pellets for me :frown:
