Most people buy a log splitter because they are splitting wood on their property either from trees specifically felled for firewood or trees that were damaged by nature or died. Either way, this almost always becomes wood that is seasoned and then split for burning. The last post I made was about the hardness of different woods and what that means to your choice in splitters.

I found a graphic a couple of weeks ago, that I'd love to give credit to whoever made it. The graphic really simplifies the descriptions of different trees. If you're lucky enough to live in an area that affords you multiple types, this chart can help you decide which may be the best for your burning needs. If not, at least the chart can help you better figure out the force you may need on your splitter to split seasoned logs of what you do have access to.

Long story short, focus on the diameter of the logs and how seasoned the wood is, if at all, in your choice of tonnage for your splitter. If you want to bump-up one size (eg. 20 to a 25-ton), that may be helpful if your logs are from a tree with wood that's a higher toughness on the Jenka scale.
