    Your woods in the back look very mature..Doesnt look like there is much undergrowth etc..was up on my lot last night (logged this past winter)..looks WAY differnet..lots of slash and smaller trees down/leaning and pine branch's all over..But I guess that is to be expected..Its not like your picking flowers.

    I actually get very little out of the woods in the back. Most is not my property. If a tree falls nearby, I will go ask the couple that owns it if they are ok with me cutting it up but I dont ask often. I do have a big standing dead oak that I am waiting on falling - that one I will ask about!
    From talking to friends I have come upon a couple good areas to get my wood. I have become a believer in letting people know you want wood, never saying no to an opportunity, acting quickly when one comes and being appreciative to those that help.
    One story, a friend who knows I am interested in wood & who has land he wants managed likes having me work with him. He asked if I would be interested in helping out on his mothers property taking a few trees down (turns out more than a few). I jumped on it. We spent 7 hours Saturday cutting, splitting and mostly cleaning up her yard. The place looked great when we finished. I took home only about 1/3 cord of split wood but more importantly I was able to help the folks that are helping me... and his mother made us a great meal! And we are going back to take down 3 more trees - sizeable oaks! He then offered to let me borrow his splitter to finish up the "tough" to split pile I have accumulated (see the last 2 pictures)....which I will be doing this evening.

    Nice job.
    Looks like your next project is to build up the outdoor fire pit :)

    I'd be worried about a live ember from that pit catching my woodpiles on fire. Looks too close for comfort.

    LLigetfa after you click them on just hold down the control key and keep hitting the + key.

    Very neat operation you have there Got Wood...that's a lot of wheelbarrowing.
