    Going out picking up Black locust and ash in the neighboring towns. I still have 10 pine trees down on my property.

    You'd be crazy not to get all the Locust you can get.

    Get it while you can
    Your pine won't whine laying there, be there when scrounging slows down ;)

    Good move. Burn the pine during the day, during shoulder season and for start-ups then burn the locust on cold nights. Sounds perfect to me.

    The pine is safe in your yard and will be waiting when you are ready to tend to it. Go get the strange!

    I'd grab the wood from other places first, and worry about the pine later. As long as the pine isn't rotting, you are better off getting other peoples' trees first, because those other peoples' trees won't be there forever.

    Nope. The wood on your own place isnt going anywhere.Grab that BL & Ash ASAP before someone else does.

    There is a lot of talk on here about grabbing another dude's wood. Just saying.

    It's fully acceptable practice here:
    To discuss another dude's wood
    admire it
    envy it
    grab someone else's

    Heck someone on here went after a women's top's after the bottoms had been taken

    gzecc, there is no doubt that you are crazy. Perhaps that is why you fit in so nicely with all the other crazy folks around here. ;)

    Not crazy. Let the Pine rot if there's Black Locust to be had.
