I have let it be known around my neighborhood (suburban lots, houses about 30 feet apart) that I burn wood. Over the past years I've collected little bits and pieces from around the neighborhood. Today, my next door neighbor told me about a house that's being torn down on the next block to clear room for a larger house (who says there's a recession?>!). I walked over and talked to the tree climbers and he said I could take all I wanted. I took 2 trailer loads before I had to run off to work, but there will be more tomorrow. There are a total of 3 medium sized maples coming down. Trunks about 20-24" I'll take another 3-4 loads tomorrow. I told another neighbor about it and he is over there now taking the remnants of today's tree felling. I figure there are about 2-3 cords total for me to pick through. P.S.- Thank god for ramps on trailers. I couldn't imagine lifting some of the big ones!
