    We get our share of bad listings here to. As the cold weather sets in the prices creep up and more crazy stuff shows up.

    Around here makes me chuckle. Every time we get a tree trimmed or cut down always several people stop to ask for it BUT if it is over 4 inches in diameter or over 18 inches long I don't have to hurry to take it. If I have some split in an hour it will disappear. Don't seem like people want to put any effort in gathering wood around here. Anything that says need cut or large round will usually hang around.

    We had a couple of very windy storms come through within the last month. so part of this is cleanup of downed trees. On Saturday I took a different route coming home from the grocery store and noticed a clump of 3 laying across a little gully right at the end of my street. This morning there's a CL ad up for more, probably within a mile of me. There's always wood available here, but this is atypical.

    I guess Im somewhere in between the PA folks and you guys. We do get the occasional CL free listing, but often they are a bit far or just more than I can manage with a small saw and no truck. No tree services willing to drop leftovers, they all sell firewood or sell the logs to outfits that do.

    If I had the space I could get a grapple load quite easily though - lots of sources for 5-8 cord truckloads around $500-600.
