Got the call from a local farmer earlier this week, and the word was that they were taking out a fence row between two fields in order to make way for a new irrigation system. These boys farm big, somewhere in the neighborhood of 10,000 acres, and don't mess around. The offer was to come take what you want, but get it quick because come Monday they were going to be burning and burying anything that was left. Hands down, this was the best "scrounging" situation I've come accross. The wood was all cherry and mulberry. they knocked it over with an excavator, cut off the root ball, limbed the trunks, and set them out into the field. It was a pretty frenzied bucking situation with the MS280 and and couple of Husky 455's to keep up with the excavator, but we managed. Load the rounds onto my brother's 18' gooseneck trailer with the little John Deere and run it back home to unload while someone else stayed behind to buck. Rinse, repeat. My uneducated wild guesstimate is that we ended up with about 10 cords of bucked cherry and mulberry. I have yet to burn mulberry, but my back (even after some kick-butt pain pills followed by a couple Gin and Tonics) says that as heavy as it is it ought to burn nice. Here are some poor photos to at least give you an idea of what went on.
