Just checked my local CL page for the first time and was pleasantly surprised with the numerous free wood ads. Some of the wood is even cut to size sitting in peoples' yards just waiting to be picked up. I'm 2 years ahead on the woodpile.... but a summer a scrounging could easily give me 3-4 years worth. I've got some health issues that may limit my use of a chainsaw in the coming years. I have Parkinson's Disease (44 years old) so I am a little shaky with the saw. I do find that I am OK, now, but have to be 100% concentrating on the task. I have more problems with balance, which is especially tricky when dropping a tree on a hillside. I am very careful and take my time always.
