So I spent some time on arboristsite.com stoking my curiosity about best practices for obtaining firewood and quickly realized much of what they were talking about was probably out of my league, at least without some training. So it got me to thinking, how do folks here get their wood when they aren't buying it. And so goes the poll. I'm very interested in hearing any exceptions to a category and why. For instance, "I will sometimes cut standing timber but only if it's dead and not hung up in another tree."
