    I scored almost 2 cord of maple this way. I talked with a tree service about dropping of the trees at my house instead of hauling 20+ miles to his dump site, if he was working in my neighborhood. He saves fuel and time, I get free wood. I didn't post on CL though, but couldn't hurt.

    I get wood dropped off at my house. The only problem with it is, a lot of the pieces have to have just about 3 or 4 inches cut off. The big pieces, they have to cut into manageable sizes so they may only be like 10 inches round. Its nice to have wood dumped off in the yard, but there's a price to pay.
