    Well perhaps not as bad as the Hindenburg but here is yet another pile of wood in someones backyard that I will inevitably watch rot away into a pile of dirt, many cords of prime Cherry and Black Locust. Perhaps I will mail them a letter to make sure they just didnt want to pay to have it removed.

    I drive past this everyday on my way to work :-(

    That looks too good (cut to length) to be a pile not planned on being used by the owner (or sold) - but, I'm with you - NEVER hurts to ask. Forget the letter - knock - harder to say no to a smiling face! Cheers!

    Worst that can happen is they say no.
    May be a great score.

    There's a similar pile of huge cherry rounds in a nearby yard, next to the stump of the tree they came from. There's also maybe half a cord of CSS stuff close to the house so the owner clearly hopes to burn the cherry himself, but the CSS pile doesn't look like it was touched this past winter; I'm doubtful he's actually burning anything at all. Maybe next spring, when some space has opened up in my racks, I'll ask him whether he'd like some help cleaning up his yard.

    I have an unwritten list of nearby woodpiles that appear destined for neglect, because their owners thought they'd burn the wood, or have it made into furniture, or thought that a valuable veneer log had grown in their yard, or simply because professional removal seemed too expensive at the time. My experience so far is that there's no harm in asking. Some say no, but some are really happy you asked.

    The internet is a blessing and a curse. You can find anything on the internet including their phone number by using a reverse directory. Finds phone numbers attached to an address. Just think what a PIA that would have been back in the day of the Fuller Brush Man!::-)

    My big Craig's List score was a huge pile of Cherry and Black Locust that the homeowner had the tree company leave for a family member. After a year, the family member never came for it and I got three truckloads of it.
