    Is that the tree company taking them away or did a Hearth.com member line up a tri-axle to come grab a huge load?

    I gots more wood than I can splits right now... and I'm not that close. Likely same for Hearth.com Members. I think Hogwildz is awful close to this guy... maybe he hasn't seen this thread?

    I've already taken three loads from him. I was hoping other members close by would take the opportunity. Plus I am beyond capacity right now until I start burning with several cords of oak waiting for me at a family member's farm. Heck, if someone had planned a little local GTG I would done my best to show up with at least a chainsaw and help saw those logs up.

    Srbenda,

    Is everything gone from your property now?

    Well...
    I have still have a nice pile of locust that could go. A small pile of maple, and at least 3 or 4 more locusts that will come down in the near future...

    Its times like this I really really wish I owned a truck/trailer. KSQ is about 25 min from me but with wood that size it might as well be in IA. That and the wife has already put me on notice about how much wood is stacked in the yard. Need a few more winters to get her schooled about the importance of seasoned wood.

    I still have plenty of this locust, now more than 2 years old. If you're short on your winter supply, let me know.

    Hi, I'm down the road behind Longwood. The wood You helped me load onto the trailer was great last year. I'm off this Thursday but honestly any time which is good for you I would love to "help" you out.

    I'm about 30 min down the road and would willing to stop by sometime this week if you still have some to get rid of. It would also be nice to meet some fellow members in the area

    Don't get too excited, guys. No crossing county lines with firewood, in eastern PA. Unless you're REAL local, you'd be breaking the law. A generous offer, nonetheless, but this is why Srbenda listed them as, "Chester County."

    That's why what everyone is hauling off Srbenda's property is future lumber and/or blanks for turning bowls.

    J/k, I have no idea if that would fool the PA DNR.

    OK, let's keep legal here.
    If you want firewood, please PM me, I see other responses in the thread, but PM me please.
    I think I have enough to give away to those that have responded so far.
    I also will have by this weekend a downed small walnut, a cherry and a locust.
    The cherry is actually a very straight nice log, that won't be free. I'll post a picture once I can get it more visible. It will make some nice boards...

    Most of the wood is gone, I do have a bit more left, more on that later.

    Here's a group of Hearthers cutting rounds off of a nice downed locust with a 90cc saw.
