Saw a tree lying by the side of the road a couple of miles from the house. I went over there to ask, and the guy and wife were working on a Red Maple, the one I saw from the road. They said "Sure, take it. We've got more down the drive, too." Today I went over to work on the Red Maple, but first walked down the drive to check out the other stuff. Yeah, there are a few Red Maple leaves on here but most of it is poison ivy! This is the biggest of the trees, at about 24". Got one trailer load. Some rounds from long-dead limbs is dry enough to burn now. There are six or so of the biggest rounds left to get. She is going to load all the rest of the wood below tomorrow, onto my trailer with their skid steer. See my saw in the background? Here's a White Ash that's down the slope to the left of the first pic. There's also a second stump and tree you can see to the left in the ditch but I don't know what that is yet, or if it's solid wood. These log, which are around 3-4' each, are back by a burn pile (pile of ashes now.) Pignut Hickory and White Oak. Nice! There's another Pignut lying close by, and the guy said he has another tree on the other side of the house that fell, I haven't looked at that yet. There are several Pignut that look like the tops are dying; I'll give him my number so he can call me when he's tired of looking at 'em. Here's where the story takes an ugly turn; His buddy, who the guy told me had as much wood as he wanted already, came over. As this fellow (the hoardin' bass turd) left with a pickup bed full of this Shagbark Hickory and White Oak, I fell to my knees and wailed like an abandoned baby. It wasn't a pretty sight. I think he may have gotten 1/3 of the wood you see here. Of course I'm thankful for what I will get, but still.... I then found this 10", 8-round Persimmon log, which dried my tears a bit....until I got a wood chip in my eye. They said they had 13 trees taken down; Apparently, they burned about half the wood in the couple days before I saw it and was able to put a stop to the madness. Sonuva pup! Said they had a hard time getting rid of wood previously, but they just had a sign on the road then. That was before the days of craigslist.... So this will probably be a 2 or 3-cord score, all told. Pretty easy pickins on some good wood.
