    Over the season there have been a couple of people on Pittsburgh's CL expressing their willingness to accept pine if it's dropped off at their house. I guess they figure they're cheaper than a landfill for someone desperate to get rid of an unwanted tree. Pine may be especially hard to get rid of here since hardwoods are so ubiquitous.

    Thats our entitlement society at work. I wouldnt be surprised if LIHEAP the heating fuel social program ,gives free firewood to all who ask.

    I see a decent CL offer about every 3 months or so. I tried the "asking" routine on CL once and got some replies but none of which I took(power lines, etc.).

    I have a friend who has a small sawmill business and he advertises fence boards and slab wood on Craigs list.

    He lists his prices in the ad and he says every 3rd or 4th call is someone wanting free boards or slab wood.

    And his slab wood price is cheap. F-550 with a 10' x 8' x 3' dump of 90+% oak slabs for $150.

    And if you have enough money to own a horse you can buy a fence board.

    Us members who have their own woodlot need to be grateful. Before I bought the 8 acre lot next to mine I had to travel to get wood and boy it really cuts down on the productivity. If I had to get all of my wood from scrounging I think I would have to consider buying wood.

    Must be nice to have your own woodlot. I had a 10 Acre place years ago ,long before i discovered wood stoves. Now i have less than an acre with precious few trees to harvest.I guess its time to upgrade.

    I think that with a 70 mile round trip you can still make it worth your time and gas.
