I see a lot of posts relating to scrounging wood in cities, parks, etc. What I am really referring to is the farm areas like we have around here. I doubt there is a farm around here that doesn't have dead trees in fencerows or along creeks and rivers. Especially now with the emerald ash borer taking a heavy toll. As I ride my bike or drive where there are rivers, most are lined with all sorts of dead ash trees now along with many dead elm. They seem to be all going to waste....yet there are those who can hardly afford to heat their homes! A sad state of affairs.
