    Had a Tree Service call yesterday morning, had 40 yards of Red Oak looking for a home.....I had to pass, I've got a couple of Log Lengths, and a chit load of rounds I need to split.....my place is a disaster, so I had to pass (sniff)....he said he'll keep me on his list for smaller loads.

    Could you just get the rounds you already have stacked neatly for now and do the same with the scrounge? I know that means handling them an extra time but maybe it will look neater and make room for the new stuff. Also flowers and a scented candle can be good attitude adjusters.

    I wouldn't mind handling them twice, but would make more of a mess just moving them around....the yard is too soft/muddy....flowers...she sez they are a waste of money....candles ???...maybe

    Yeah my yard probably resembles yours, lots of rounds,sawdust, and mud. Luckily my wife cares more about how the front yard looks than the back.

    A man says to another man:

    "I have this big dumpster full of cash that I can drop off at your house - no charge...you want it?"

    The other mans says:

    "I would glady accept the free cash, but I have too much cash laying around the yard already. I think my wife would not appreciate eye-sore even more cash laying around the yard would create. I really need to stack up all the cash I have right now before I can get any more cash."

    The first man says:

    "Uh...OK. Well, if I come across some pennies and whatnot...I'll call you next time. If I come across big piles of cash I will not call you."

    Hmm. Yeah. That's....

    I'm in the opposite corner of the state....too bad...I've got vacant land - we could have taken the load and processed it in the spring. I'd keep half of course ;)

    Yea, you put your cash in the bank and you split and stack your rounds neatly so you are ready for more

    BB, I have one at home like that too......
    I still would've taken the wood and dealt with the consequences.....

    My daughter went through basic training at Cape May, Oct - December 2000, Her first billet was on the Abbey Burgess in Rockland ME in January 2001. Then she got better work in a PSRU unit in Boston. She got out after 8 years of service.

    Sorry but the only vacant land I have I'm holding onto - 11 acres with frontage on the Quinebaug up in Canterbury. It's a decent woodlot and there's lots of turkey and deer there :)

    i feel the same way. i have 20 acres and hate to overload with wood. i have a ton of oak to get to, but it will have to wait! im not into moving wood multiple times. it just plain sucks.
