    I laid down a cherry tree that was on my neighbors property line... hanging a tad bit over onto mine, he said I could take a few more if I want. There is a maple right next to it that I will take
    once my corn is all harvested.Getting a pretty good supply of free wood so far.

    Very nice! It's hard to beat cherry for firewood.

    Cherry is one of my favorites. I like the way it looks and smells when it's split and it smells great when it burns.

    That's a pretty good size for cherry. Lots of good burning there.

    Just found the answer to my question in your other post! So much for it being the "twisted cherry" you said you normally find! Thats nice and straight for you!

    Nice. You know I live pretty close, so if you ever need a hand my taking would only need to be 70%!!
    I still have a good amount Im waiting to get down the road untill all the weeds dry/die out around it.

    Yep, I knew it would clip it...but what the heck, I got close to 6 dozen ears and there's only a few left. The maple is shorter but has a busy crown.
