    ok....just wondering....when you "grab" do folks ask first or just take it. there can be a fine line there if someone doesn't really want it gone and were planning to take it themselves and just haven't gotten to it yet....that's assuming its on someones property....and its ALWAYS on someones property.

    "and its ALWAYS on someones property"
    There's your guide. It can sometimes be difficult to find the owner, though.
    I have a power line next door, and own the property it's built on. Most people up here presume it's the power co.'s, but they'd be wrong.

    yeah, i called our local power line when they widened it. while saying in one breath it was ok to go pick off the line, the next breath said to check with the land owners as they owned it. most power companies just have a right of way through the property.

    I wouldn't go on anyone's property. Most of the wood I find is on the side of the road or Craigslist

    NYLife, getting a little at a time many times can add up to a lot in a very short time.

    Only caution is that in most states, the landowner owns approximately to the center of the roadway or right-of-way. This means that if I caught someone cutting a tree between the ditch and the roadway, they would be stealing from me and I can stop them. Actually, I can actually legally stop them from even parking their car there! We have to give the right of way but still own it. The right of way is for folks driving through and not stopping. Touchy subject at times but very true.

    I agree with you a 100% I would never go on anyone's property. The wood that I found on the side of the road belonged to the town.

    Yes, even here in MI most folks can pick up wood along the road because so few burn it. Landowners are happy to get rid of it.

    Seems that most people in this town burn wood or at least have a means to burn it. Oil, propane or electric are our options here and they are all expensive..

    My dad who is 82 still likes to toss a log into his smoke dragon on occasion. He really shouldn't be burning wood as he can barely get around but he is stubborn. Must be where I get that trait from lol..

    Where NYLife and I live, either the town or state own the land that the roads are on and usually a few feet beyond the pavement. In fact, my property line is about 25 or more feet from the center of my road.

    Not the case here . . . people get a little perturbed if someone comes along and takes the wood . . . even if it's been out there for several weeks or months and is untouched . . . and in my area at least just about everyone either burns wood or knows someone who burns wood.

    being from n.y. and having family still living there, i thought they had right away and ability to "modify" the traveling lanes out so many feet from the road, but i didn't realize the state/county owned it. it pretty much amounts to owning it...
