    I think "beach" wood means it grew near the beach, right?

    Just worked my way through this thread. I've never used Craigslist, so let me see if I have this right - I can put an ad up, have someone come to my place with bucket truck and crew, cut up @ 10 cord and stack in perfect 16" lengths, split enough to fill my woodshed, re-shingle my roof, wash my truck, and then pay me $800 - $1000 for the privilege of hauling away the stumps for me? Who knew...?

    and haul away the excess earth, and landscape the ground that was disturbed by their equipment.

    That said their are some decent/useful offers out there, otherwise we wouldn't be prowling Craigslist constantly

    Yes - kudos to anyone who takes the time to post something just because they feel someone else might benefit. Even the guy with the little pile of sticks to give away, just being a decent soul...

    Haha I seen this one to. They just put that load of wood "on sale" no longer $1000 it's now $900. I once had a tape measure like the one this guy is using. Broke off the first few inches, didnt realize right away. This guy must a broke his tape in half or something cause I ain't seeing no 2000 cu feet of logs :)

    I love the title:
    Free firewood it's going to be a cold winter you cut trees

    Apparently we can just cut it down (while easily avoiding being electrocuted by the power lines) and then just pop it right into our fireplaces/stoves. Nice!

    Looks like someone made a decent start but wisely changed their minds part way through the job.
