In early October one of my neighbors came over and said he was having three douglas firs cut down sometime in December. The smallest was about 20" at the base, the largest about 36". He said I could have the wood. He specifically told me not to get wood anywhere else because his trees would be more than enough to fill all my storage space. My dad was at my house that day and heard the same thing I did. Last week, I walked over to his house to find out when the trees would be cut, just so I could be available to move it off his property and get it processed. Then, it turned more to a situation where I could have the tree next to my driveway and maybe another. The trees came down today and now he says I can take PART of the wood near my driveway and we'll see what's left from the other smaller one after he takes some for his occasional burning. The big one is going to be sold for $50 a truck load. It's his wood and he can sell it, burn it, give it away, or let it rot. I don't care. I just want to know. The bummer is that because his trees were offered to me, I passed up an opportunity to get a nearly unlimited amount of quality wood last month (also for free). That opportunity closed at the end of November. I'm not even gonna take any of the neighbor's fir now. I'll just tell him to sell it all. I don't want to deal with any headaches or feel like I'm pressuring him. By coincidence I have tomorrow off work and I thought I would use the day to get a bunch of wood moved off his property and split. I think I'll go fishing instead. I have lots of opportunities to get firewood so it's not an issue of going without.
