#25 - It does on a fire  [+] (14 new replies) 02/19/2016 on really sharp knife or... 0

A freshly cut tree contains roughly 50% water. The surface moisture will dry up quickly but the water inside of it will prove extremely difficult to make the wood burn. There's a reason why wood is seasoned (which takes anywhere from 6 to 12 months), so that the inside of it can be dried out before being used in a fire.

Yeah but once the surface moisture is gone the outside of the log can burn, which in turn dries the water out of the middle. It involves a lot of fizzling and cracking but who cares? I've put many a freshly cut log onto a fire and, while it takes a little while to light, it always burns in the end

Not once did I say it wouldn't burn. I said it'd take a long time and would be difficult to burn.

In #19 you implied it'd be horribly impractical, which is the point I'm refuting.

That's because it would be horribly impractical.

If it works it's not impractical. Sure, less impractical perhaps than having seasoned wood at your disposal, but honestly nobody's going to go camping with enough bags of that stuff to last them their stay. It's an expensive waste

"If it works it's not impractical." I've eaten cereal with a butter knife before. It works but it's still pretty damn impractical.

If you don't have a spoon, a knife's your best bet

Practical: (of an idea, plan, or method) likely to succeed or be effective in real circumstances; feasible.

You don't have a spoon. Using a knife works, in this circumstance it's practical.

Changing the scenario, you don't have seasoned wood. Using freshly cut wood, which burns when enough heat is applied to dry it out, is a practical work-around.

I can do that too.

Impractical: (of an object or course of action) not adapted for use or action; not sensible or realistic.

It's impractical to run a marathon in high heels. Yes, it can be done, but it's impractical. It's impractical to use a knife in place of a spoon. Yes, it can be done, but it's impractical. It's impractical to burn freshly cut wood. Yes, it can be done, but it's impractical.

I know it'll burn. It'll just take a long time, make the fire weaker and is very impractical.

A freshly chopped down tree does not dry that fast though.
