Ok, that gives me an Idea. With a rocket stove and enough room, maybe you could grow mushrooms off the wood for a few years then burn it for heat. The wood might be a bit punky by the time the mushrooms stop growing, but with the efficiency of a RMH, maybe it wouldn't matter. That or Hugelkulture.

small wood piles here and there in the garden are wonderful for hiding places and homes for a lot of small animal life and sunning areas for others..
