I have been reading on the forums for a few months and I have learned quite a bit. Just bought a house and it has a wood burning stove insert. So I have been doing my research and searching for wood. Just so happened to drive by a house where a guy was felling a huge walnut tree, stopped to chat and ask him about the wood he said if I helped him cut it up I could have the wood minus the trunk. Here are a few shots of the tree and the wood. Spent the last two days cutting and stacking super excited to start splitting it. the majority of the tree was dead and nice a dry.
