I few weeks ago I found an ad in the wanted section of my local Craig's List. Somebody was looking for downed hardwood trees to mill with his portable saw mill. I sent the guy a note offering to work with him. I figured if he does find wood that will work for his mill, there must be leftovers that would make fine firewood for me. We sent a few emails back and forth and agreed that we could work together. He located a Red Oak that had fallen from somebody's lawn, across a street and into the neighbor's lawn. The town cut the trunk that was across the road into two eight foot sections and put them on the lawn with a loader. The other stuff was cut. He used his monster Husky 3120 with about 36" bar and his Alaskan Mill to mill these boards. View attachment DSC05856.jpg We loaded and took the milled stuff to his house. Here's the left overs.

View attachment DSC05869.jpg I got about a cord out of the deal. I could have taken more, but I didn't want to overload the old truck. I traveled about 40 minutes for this stuff, so I didn't want to beat up the truck too badly. Some day I'll get the rear springs redone and get some better radial tires for it so I can load it more and still feel safe driving it longer distances. Here it is at home. Most of it has been partially split so there will be some drying before I get it down to stove size in the next few weeks. I guess this will be OK for '10/'11.
