Driving home today I decided to count the fallen trees from the point where I get off the interstate till I get home. About a ten minute ride at legal speed limits, and with lights. Distance is about 6 miles. I hadn't made it half way and I hit 100. that's trees that have fallen right up near the roads or on the edge of lots. Only counted hardwoods. most of it oak. several years of drought then rain rain rain, tropical storms, and lots of high winds have played hell with our forests here. It all just sits there. Sits sits sits...rots. I'm half tempted to start dropping by and leaving people who have a nice oak down in a convenient spot a note offering to cut it up and take it away for a nominal fee. Do that a couple weekends and I could probly afford to buy myself a new chainsaw. yee haww.
