    Local road is being widened, contractor cut down trees, stacked the logs but never got in to remove them due to wet weather. I drove past them for 9 months...till I figured, if I don't ask, I'll never know. The job supervisor told me to take them all, the contractor is not coming back. Wow! 6 full trailer loads, 12 ft logs, and still didn't clear all the various stacks of logs. That's me finished now. Enough wood on hand for 8-10 yrs. Unreal winter for wood availability here.

    Very sweet indeed!

    It seems to me that the further south you go (to a point) the better the quality & availability of good burning wood there is. Them's what need it least have it most.

    Wow! How did you get all that onto a trailer? 8-10 years' worth? Amazing.

    My wood ID skills are very lacking. No idea what the trees are. I can recognize pine...and leave it alone....and I think I know white oak....but that's it.
    No idea what this stuff was. It sure is heavy though, the skidsteer was at tipping point on some of the large logs.
