    Saw a posting on CL that said will deliver within 20 mile radius and it is free. Mixed hardwoods. Logs are 3ft to 9 ft sections. Due to the recent hurricane tree companies have an overabundance of logs and don't want to pay to get rid of them and can't really sell them either.

    Okay. Wait a minute! You mean the delivery is free. Right? I guess I can see in this storm's magnitude that the wood could be free as well. That would be awesome!

    It is posted under free on CL and says will deliver within 20 miles of a location. I am 32 miles from the guy but i'm sure a few $$ for gas would seal the deal. Will be nice to hear back from the guy!
