    My brother has a piece of property on Lake Huron. He's getting ready to add a drive and needed to remove some small tree's none bigger than 10-12 inches. I dropped 8 tree's or so with the majority of them being Black Locust and a few small dying White Ash sprinkled in. When I left I told my wife I wasn't bringing anything home since I have probably 6+ cords of silver maple heaped up right now. I left my trailer at home on purpose. Well that didn't work, I ended up bringing a small load home in the truck, probably a 1/3 cord or so.

    It's an expensive load of wood considering fuel costs but the main thing was to help my brother out. I have about 20 or so more White Ash to take down for him but those will wait a while longer. They still had leaves last year and look to have a few buds this year so they still have some time.

    Had to leave a little for next time I go up to visit.

    Didn't get crazy I didn't heap it up since it's a long drive.

    Be very difficult to leave locust behind.
    The rest will be there for many years waiting for you. Bark-less, but solid :)

    Sorry to "bug" you! I never moved it when they had the ash quarantine from county to county in the lower. Legally I/we can move all hardwood in the lower, just can't leave the lower. Should a new bug pop up I'll honor whatever quarantine they come up with. All my firewood gets moved to some degree, I've never scored anything local that amounts to anything.
