Not far from where I live last weekend somebody cut down a couple of small spruce trees and stacked the brush along the side of the road for the township crew to chip and take away. I noticed a few larger pieces of the trunks stacked there too, so on a couple of my too frequent trips to town I stopped and loaded the trunk of the Camry. This what I got in two loads. It is Blue Spruce and really heavy right now, but it will be a lot lighter by the time I burn it in a couple of years. I am showing this mainly because I get most of my firewood from scrounges this large or smaller. In fact once I stacked this up I realized this is a pretty good find for me. More often I get 1/4 or 1/3 this much from one spot. It seem like when sombody has a really big tree they'll find a friend who wants the firewood, but with small amounts of wood, or with wood that might not even strike you as firewood, it gets stacked by the road. Anyway, I read lots of posts asking how to scrounge firewood; my advice is don't pass up a couple of rounds in a pile or brush. Over the year it adds up.
