    If it needs a truck or climbers, it needs a licensed and insured professional. The homeowner is a fool.

    For free wood, I'll drop almost anything as long as it will not hit a structure.

    Here is another good one. I imagine at this price, the guy will have "tons and tons" next season as well. The highest cord price I have seen locally is $200 delivered. Which makes this guy about twice as expensive.

    I answered a craiglist for wood in southern Indiana. I went and saw the wood which was 10-15 foot chunks about 25 inches in diameter or so. The wood was back on the guys land with weeds grown up around and he said he would pull the chunks up or move them where I could get at them

    After 2 hours of work and splitting by hand I had about half a truck load. I found one piece with some kind of metal in it down about half way into it. I stopped when I saw sparks and told the guy it wasn't worth ruining my chain. The wood was 2-3 year old maple and is still listed in craigslist and will be there next year. It wasn't worth the time and effort for the kind of wood or ruining a saw.

    http://atlanta.craigslist.org/grd/832188309.html


    I am up to about 3 cords split and stacked and will be out here for at least 2 to 3 loads a weekend for the next month.


    Gotta love free oak!

    I would SOOOOO be all over that! $5 bucks a truck/trailer load??? HELL YEAH! Too bad I don't live in atlanta.

    I get all my wood free anyways, but its all deep in the woods so I have to cut it up and load it into my pickup, then transfer it to the trailer.

    Lots of old trees that have been around for generations, in the country, have many bullets in them....If they are lead not too big a deal but if they are jacketed you could ruin many chains on them...especially at cutting height.... Saw this on AX-MEN....new series on History or Discovery Channel
