Although I don't need to scrounge firewood, it seems every time I drive down the road or ride my bike I can't help but see all the firewood going to waste. There are dead trees all over the place. Here it is mostly ash and elm but several cottonwoods too. A couple days ago I spotted some huge hard maples and an oak the were right by the road. I've often wondered why more folks don't knock on doors now. They could even mark the trees so they could tell the difference during winter if that is what they need to do. Sad to see so much just rot away when so many need the fuel. I'd bet most of it could be had for nothing except clean up the brush when done.
