Talked to a guy that has a pasture he wants the trees cleared out of (drive right up to the trees). He said he isn't a tree guy so he isn't sure what kind they are. I asked him, do you have any Osage Orange? Those are the trees that drop the large, softball sized, wrinkled green fruits. I have been trying to find some of that. He said, "Yes, I have a bunch of them, can you get rid of them for me?" I think I'm in heaven. We have yet to set a meeting time/place to go check it out, but I just couldn't contain my excitement. That's not to mention the guy just a couple miles down the road that is clearing his whole lot and wants somebody to take the wood. I think my wife is going to kill me because I can't stop getting free firewood. I'm probably going to have to start selling some just so I can keep up my obsession and keep myself from literally building a wood barricade around my house. ETA, for those of you that know where I live, stay off my score... this one is mine! I've always wanted to burn some Osage (haven't had that pleasure yet) so now is the time. ***Edit After cutting Wednesday, Thursday, and All day yesterday (went camping Friday, Saturday, Sunday) I have 4 truck loads of Osage Orange. I couldn't get a buyer willing to make it worth-while for the Osage log so it's now firewood length. There is a TON of Black locust at the same place but it's a long (16 mile) drive. I called the guy 4 miles down the road to try to go back and cut black locust there and he said somebody else already came and got it all for now. The good news is that the 3 acres he is clearing still has a lot of locust on it, I just can't cut there until he gets a gate put in so I can get back to it. Hopefully I can get a lot cut and out of there before anybody else moves in on the score. Otherwise I guess I'll be driving 16 miles to cut black locust.
