    Hard to tell by the pictures but it does not look like poison ivy to me. Remember the old saw: leaves of 3 leave them be.

    Went by and only had enough room in my car for 3 of the rounds split up. If its not raining I will be going by tomorrow and pick up another load and I will be splitting it very small with the hopes some may be ready to burn at the end of the burning season next winter. It was standing dead.

    Ok so another ID. Hope no one minds that I keep all my stuff to 1 thread.

    They say this is oak but it doesnt look like the oak I got last time and its only like 5 minutes from me so would be nice to grab some.

    So I have been busy and never got to that ad, however another one popped up near me that stated they had "a lot" of wood that was cut in 2011. I ran over there with my dad and his truck. It was all oak rounds 12-36 inches much of it was cut to around 15-16 inches.(Perfect for the Scirocco im getting) I grabbed what I could that wasn't rotted out, but now I have a HUGE problem.............


    After this is all split up I will be out of room! In hindsight I really wish I would not have bought the cord of seasoned stuff and just scrounged all my wood. There is plenty of wood for free here it seems and I was actually enjoying doing all the cutting.... Oh well. Will have to oil the axes drain the fluids on the chain saw and put it back up in the garage till next year.


    Hmmmm..... Unless I burn a bunch of it in the fire pit! Looks like the kids are gunna get a lot more smores this year!
