    I'm removing a bunch of downed and cut up trees for a coworker for some free firewood. I thought it was mostly less-than-optimal firewood (pine etc, not that I'm complaining about it) but it turns out about a cord of it is nice red oak. Woo Hoo! Free Oak!

    Nice! I'm going to try scrounging next year and see what I can come up with.

    Hmmm, tempting... But I have a Super Split and about 8+ cords of oak I still need to get around to splitting, so I think I'll have to pass. :cheese:

    You never know what scrounging will yield until you go and take a look at the wood yourself. What one guy describes as 'a little firewood' might be several cords, while another guy might mean a couple of small branches. Also, most people don't look closely at a downed tree because to them it doesn't matter what type of tree it is, its all just something to clean up. You can't be sure what type of tree it is until you look for yourself.
