Well I started scrounging and have found that I'm not much of a lumberjack. It's hard to cut a 30+" trunk with a little Poulan 18" piece of junk. Especially a green water oak trunk. Splitting is even harder on these and they are cut at 17"! I went and got one of those mega mauls from TSC which does work after 20-30 wacks. Now on the way to work I saw a tree service setting up around this other big water oak. So of course I stopped and asked if they were going to take the wood and he looked at me like I was crazy. He said they NEVER take the wood, just cut it and leave it. Come and get it after we're done he says. It's close enough that I can drive my 20' flatbed and pick up. Maybe even drive the forklift down and load it up. But now I need a decent saw to cut some large trunks and at least rent a splitter once I get it all sawed and ready. Splitters run $75 a day which seems a little on the high side to me. But if I can get a whole big red oak tree processed then it should give me enough for a few years. I'm not too good estimating, but I imagine this would be 2 or more cords. I'm really unsure how much wood would come out of a big oak tree like that. I do have the room to get it and keep it here at work and just work it over time until I get it ready to split. It's nice to be here in the south where people don't burn much because there are trees galore and noone who wants them except me .
