After paying for wood last year that was marginal at best, we have been on a quest to get ahead this year. Has been a little slow. Managed to get about a half cord of oak from a neighbors friend this past June and just got another cord from a neighbor who works for the city and had some oak they took down last Jan. hopefully that will be ready for 2015. I found about 2 face cords already c/s/s of 14%mc oak on craigslist that a lady wanted out of her yard for free (big score) and going to pick up a large maple and another hardwood tree she is taking down tomorrow (not sure how much would is in them, but about 20" diameter on both of them also for free) Then found a guy who is selling pick up truck 2X4X8 for $50 a load of Maple and Red Elm c/s/s last November of 2011. I have about 2 cords from last year that are sitting at 14-17%MC and now with a couple pickups should be good for this year and with the trees I am picking up hope to have a good stash for next year. Craigslist is my friend as of now. Any other ways you guys find free wood?
