    I believe they have their own little vineyard that produces the wine. It would be a decent deal if they were actually providing the promised amounts, but 4x4x4 stacked criss-cross like they're doing it isn't nearly half a cord.

    When I'm working in the woods, the stuff below reminds me of the stuff I have to move out of the way to get to the real wood.

    "Not split wood. Appears to be Pine. There are burnable LARGE peices under the brush. Most are wet, rotted wood - great for making mulch. Other larger and longer pieces need ot be cut and split. Good for outdoor burning.

    Easy access. You take. Bring friends. Some pieces long may need a cut. Cut but in split are around 24" diameter.

    Several have come not understanding what is here. There is rotted wood for mulching and some wood still decent for outdoor burning.

    I am not interested in services or fee-based removal.

    Serious replies only. Include local phone number."

    Can't imagine even a neighborhood kid could be hired to move that bug and snakes infested pile of junk. Seems like their touchy about people not appreciating that fine rotten wood they giving away. To my eyes those rounds been there 4-5 years or more. Some people......

    At first I thought you were buying timber on 40 acres for a clear cut. If normally stocked $35k might not be a bad deal but 8 firewood tree / acre??? That guy is smoking crack!

    Its outsides and therefore not heartwood so its less dense. Maybe its somewhat dry. Has to be better than delivered greenwood. If hard up I may buy one bundle and see.

    Might want to post in a new thread and not the joke category.

    What does a cord of hardwood normally go for in your area? $170 for a cord of unbucked slabs would be high in western PA, but that doesn't mean much for you. If it's predominantly denser woods and not full of poplar, aspen, pine and such then it might be a good deal. The pictured bundle has relatively little bark, which is promising.

    Agreed if that's pine not a deal. If u can get a cord of split wood delivered for $225 not a deal. Weigh all options.

    They go for $50 here but like the others have said depends on your regional prices for a cord. You can get all the cords of hardwood you want here for $150 delivered. What I don't like about slab wood is you have to cut it, you can make something to make the job easier and it will probably dry quicker than a cord of green splits but you have to weigh your options.

    Yeah I am going to Pass. I found this ad and am going to give the guy a try. Its all green wood anyways so why not pay green wood prices and get it all pre-split! $155 a cord split and delivered is the best I have seen for anyone around me.

    I posted some ads in the wanted section last year. I specified that I was only looking for down trees that needed cleaning up. Wouldn't believe (or I bet you might) the number of replys I got for people wanting me to take down their trees haha. Then I got someone, probably a dealer, writing me about how there was no way someone was going to give away BTUs for free.

    Yea it didn't bug me too much but it gave me a chuckle we had some big storms a couple summers ago blow down a lot of trees.... wish I had been into burning back then I would I had more free wood than I could handle if I just drove around town with my saw in the truck! I don't take down standing trees as I am not skilled or experienced enough for that but once its down I'm all over it!

    Cutting standing g trees is FUN!! I don't cut yard trees as its too strrssfull but in the woods its fun to watch a monster hit the ground. Even if they may get hung if felled wrong.

    Here's a good one. Just pull it out of the stream and pay me for the privilege of doing it.

    Did you notice that the truck is fairly straight. :confused:
