    My mailman and farmer friend and his son cut down what the son said was an American oak tree 2 months ago and saw them split this tree by hand with a monster maul. When I saw how big the pieces were, I asked him would he take $50 for what they call a rick which is much more than the normal rick. He looked at me funny and said if I wanted the wood I could have it for their normal $40 per. I told him I would give him a $100 for what we stacked that day and I got the wood today and here are some pics of the wood.

    The spots on the pics are from the snow as I was taking the pictures and didnt want to take more in the weather. I went and measured the stacks, all the pieces are at least 19 inches long and most are over 22. The stack on the wall is 9 feet by 4 feet tall and the pallet is a 48x48 stacked over 50 inches tall.

    [quote author="polaris" date="1264536947"]What's an American oak?I wasn't sure either and couldn't find it on line, but the son works for an Indiana state park and figured he knew what he was talking about?
