    My storage area is full. Now is the time to get the maul out and get to work...

    That is two large red oaks, one maple, and one beech. About 80% red oak. Never was more that 100 yards from my driveway when I gathered it and there is still a lot more out there.

    There is sooo much out there I left the uglies at the curb for the town clean-up crew. I split by hand and don't want to work too hard if I don't have to.

    Glad you are getting use from the downed trees.
    Looks to be premium wood too. Gonna make some real nice splits :)
    To bad you are running out of room.
    Is there still lots of good wood there for the taking?

    Yes. The town has only cleared the main roads. All the side streets are still cluttered with downed trees and that does not count what is in people's yards or at the town staging areas. At the rate they are going there will be plenty around until it starts to rot.

    Sorry you are so far away, some good scrounging around here.

    I'd be tempted to get that lot split, and find a way of increasing your storage area.

    It's almost impossible to have too much wood.........;)

    I agree. In these times of plenty there is no reason to fight with those uglies.

    My limited storage space is a problem too.

    Nice looking Sandy wood!

    My area seems mostly cleaned up.

    Great looking rounds! Looks like fun, and will be wonderful heat in a couple years.

    A few years supply of Oak would be a treat for sure.
