    there is a add in CL for free fire wood in your town and you can't be bothered to E-mail the guy.
    The wood shed is full to over flowing ( about 4-5 cords), I have about a cord of cut up oak palates in the basement,
    I think I am good to go!

    You Know when you have too much wood when…
    your wife threatens to leave you and you analyze how much a divorce will cost versus scrounge withdrawal therapy sessions.

    Fortunately, I have neither too much wood nor obsessive compulsive scrounge syndrome.

    You know you have too much wood when... your local municipality sends you a letter requesting a business licence for commercially processing fire wood on your property within the city limits. >:-( TRUE STORY

    I agree in spirit but I literally run out of room from time to time and must put my wood hound on her leash.

    I sold 10 cords that I cut up last winter. I'm about at the 7 cord mark of ash. Plus another cord of silver maple. I stacked it all on a unused 34 ft diamter grain bin pad. You can't see the floor of the pad. Little did I know we would be producing a record crop and a bin will be built there. My nicely stacked ash will be pushed off into the grass. :( instead of restacking, im buiding ramps out of splits to drive loader tractor up on, and pushing it off. Gotta find a new stacking place now....

    I also rented a stump grinder this weekend. 75 bucks for the weekend. I ground 1 36" diameter ash, 48" silver maple and halfway done with a 80" silver maple. That 80" was a beatiful tree, over 175 years old at its death.

    "You Know when you have too much wood when"… they use your wood piles as a land mark!

    When your friends see your stacked wood along the property line and say that you must be too cheap to buy a fence.

    I have been offered at least 2 cords from two people, but I can't take it until I split and stack the 2 1/2 that are on my driveway. With only 1/4 acre I have a hard time managing my wood.

    Too much wood..... this is possible :).

    You have too much wood when yourself start thinking about selling some to by a ski-doo for the winter time..... Not a true Story yet, but could very much happen to me somewhere down the road.....

    Aren't there supposedly grim medical implications at about that point (according to some mentions by a Doc that I know)?

    Hey now, that's exactly what I'm doing with some pine for 2011.
    I'm not too worried anyone taking any ofit, either.

    This is a rhetorical question! How could you ever know you have too much wood when in fact you can never have too much wood? How much wood could a woodchuck chuck.....
