I gather from the forum that this is a good kind of wood. There is a local small time operator who has just split a cord of red oak that was 80 feet tall and was taken down by someone who did not want to deal with the leaves. I went to look at it. It is cut nice and small, well shaped for stacking and I know it is green. He is asking $200 delivered. Seems like a good deal to me but want some confirmation on this.
