    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.

    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.
