    Found this on the local CL...

    Free Firewood (Just acorns right now) (NE Baltimore)17:52 11/27/2011, Free Firewood - Baltimore CL

    I have some acorns that I am going to plant in my backyard tomorrow. Hopefully they will grow into huge, healthy oak trees one day. If you'd like some firewood just reply and I will give you my address. In 124 years you are welcome to come by and cut them down, section the trunk and split the logs into usable-sized pieces and then age it for a year or more on your own property. FOR FREE!!!

    (This post is obviously a response to the ridiculous "free firewood" posts recently on Craigslist that offer free firewood as long as you are willing to show up at their house and do $1500 bucks worth of labor free of charge to them... so you can have the "free" firewood. Which will need to be seasoned for a year before it's even usable.)

    If he's really smart, he'll plant those acorns six feet away from the house.

    I guess I'm a realist . . . I've been planting acorns where I've been cutting . . . knowing full well that I will never reap the benefit of harvesting them for lumber or firewood . . . but I figure some day someone else might appreciate having a whole bunch of oak.

    So, what's wrong with that? We planted 4 of them. 2 for each of us. :)

    I do that also,plant a few each year. Even though 99% of the oak I harvest is dead,its nice to help the squirrels in replacing what's gone.Though not even my 4 yr old great nephew will likely see them mature.His children will though.
