    I've had my share of spelling errors, but this is a new one for me. I found it amusing.

    "We had a tree fall down in our yard last week, and just need to get rid of the wood. We have it all cut up and ready to go. It looks like a birch tree, but the tree person that came to give us an estimate on cutting it up wrote popular tree. Not sure if you can burn these inside your house, but we did have a friend take 1 load to burn in his garage. Could also be good for outdoor fireplaces I would think. You would need a truck or trailer. Let me know if you could use it and it's yours free! Thanks."

    Well I guess it depends on how many people contact the guy to pick up the wood that will determine if the wood is popular or just poplar.

    There's someone out there burning 1 week old "popular" in his garage. No doubt had to move the lawnmower over to make room for the stack.

    I'm not a scholar by any means, but I am often suprised at the spelling and grammar problems ---especially on craigslist. I recently saw one stating that they could HALL away your scrap metal. Popular poplar......oak is the mostest poplar wood to bern.....

    Hold on Joel. You'll find those same mistakes on this forum a lot.

    Not sure about all others, but I once tried burning some unpopular wood....
