    It sure would be friendly, but you need to ask! Maybe they want those small branches for rabbit habitat :)

    Around here if you want something you do not put or leave it by the side of the road. It will be gone & nobody will be charged with theft. The only time there is any real interest in firewood here is if a tree gets posted on Craigslist. Out east it sounds like its a "hangin" offense to take wood by the road, here they come out & thank you after its loaded, Randy

    Same here.If its piled or stacked on the curb when in town or same on edge of rural road its free for whoever gets its first.More than once I've had people come out from the house or when outside & thank me for cleaning up their mess.Whether its cut to length or still in long pieces.Once in a while I find some nice Mulberry or Walnut,occasionally various Oak cut from a fencerow & laying in a pile in ditch.

    Guessing that the whole East Coast deal could be due to the fact that in my neck of the woods so many people either heat with wood themselves or have family or friends that heat with wood . . . or simply think they're sitting on a proverbial gold mine and see that rotting tree as downed dollar bills.

The lady stop me and said that the its now the other guys tree unless I want to pay more tha 100.00...Lol the tree fell over in a wind storm trunk was rotted. He had to want it for milling..lol Not more than a cord of firewood there!
