    This was an easy one, tree came down this summer in a storm. Owners cut it up and pushed it into the brush. S last week I stopped and asked about it, they said go for it. Got two loads out of it. Could probably get two more but most of what I left there was punky or small stuff. I'm well ahead so not to worried about the small stuff. Looks to be a cord or so.

    Nice score swags, we burn about 3 cord a year so I would never pass up on a score like that.

    Nice - I have a bunch available out back already down by nature. It is all sitting high above ground held by the root ball or other downed trees so I am taking as much ash as I can get out easy before I start on the cherry. Probably 30% of my stacks are cherry already.

    Very nice! I scored a cherry to this year after Sandy... If you smoke or grill, It is wonderful with ribs and chicken.

    Good score, and already sort of cut is even better. We always have some cherry in the stacks here.

    I like the smell of that stuff, both splitting and burning it. Haven't burned any this year yet, but I did buck up a couple of standing deads up on the farm, waiting for more snow so I can haul them out of the woods.....
