    If any of yo have read the thread Big Job for Tomorrow regarding myuincle that was badly hurt in a tree cutting accident. This is regarding him. He has about 2-3 cord of locust that he was going to sell, he doesnt have a wood burner. This is all bucked and I will be splitting it. If anyone is interested and needs some they will be selling it for a good price. .This was cut recently and is green, if anyone is interested let me know. I will deliver if needed. He was the income for the family and will be off work for a long time.

    Was removing a silver maple with multiple trunks, It was in a tight neighborhood and a crane was used to get to the tree over a garage. The one trunk spun and something got in the safety clasp on the hook. It opened and let the piece fall, the piece was about 16-18" trunk and 30' long. it landed on him and pinned him to the ground. He lived but was severely injured.

    Oh wow, talk about a freak accident. Hope he gets well soon. Where in N.E. ohio is the wood? Just in case someone is interested. It's too far for me.

    Swagler, I'm without words. I read the original post and even responded how that job looked like fun or something like it....hope I didn't jinx the operation.

    I'm sure I speak for the enitre Hearth.com family when I say your uncle, his family and you are in our thoughts and prayers and if we can help in any way we will.

    I havent really set a price, his kids dont know too much about firewood and prices. I would guess around 125-150 a cord, great stuff and I would love to take it myself but if we can help make the family a little money then I would rather sell it.
