    Free firewood (Ballard)

    About 20 pieces of firewood. Come get it before it rains! It's been sitting in our driveway for five years so if we haven't used it by now I don't think were going to use it!

    "boy, this oak must be really really dry... It's burning like paper!"
    Edit: ok, maybe it is oak. The first pic looked like poplar to me. I didn't look at the second pic before posting.

    FREE FIREWOOD - Please Cut and Take (Morton Grove)
    I have two giant oak trees in the yard that need to be cut down and hauled away. These are great for firewood or even for furniture (furniture artisans?). The trees are near our house and need to be taken down with care and proper equipment. Please reply in your email with:
    1. Your experience taking down large trees
    2. Your equipment being used
    3. Whether you have access to a boom lift.
    • Location: Morton Grove
    Damn, if I only had a bucket truck, I could have all the free wood that I need!

    I am actually considering responding to this to find out what his threshold of pain is when I tell him about my lack of experience. Should I start with limited experience and build up, or start with great experience and go backwards?

    If that plywood was clean and I saw it down the street from me I would snag it to use as a roof over my stacks. It keeps the tarps from puddling.

    Free oak tree. You cut it you keep it. (bensalem)

    I have a tall oak tree in my front yard. It looks to be about 60 to 70 feet tall. I'm looking to get rid of it so anyone who wants the wood can have the entire tree if they are willing to cut it.

    Just because you make firewood out of trees doesn't mean trees are firewood.

    Oh, now that is rich. Now they want the branches chipped and left on site. For the 'free wood'... these psychopath stupids take the cake.

    This is a legitimate post for free firewood in rounds for the taking, but... *cough* its the worst firewood that there is. If you can call it that. O/w Mean Dean would be processing it and selling it himself.

    ....

    Tons of Free Firewood from Dean The Wood Guy (sunnyvale)
    Tons of "Tree of Heaven" firewood....
    all cut up into One and a Half to Two Foot
    Rounds, all by the front of the homes'
    street curb, ready to be loaded, by you,
    all for Free.
