I mentioned in my other hickory post another free hickory only 2 miles from home. I went and bucked up a small load this morning: The Hickory is rivaled only by the Ash laying next to it as far as the lucky score goes. The Ash is a full 37" across the butt end and virtually that large all the way up. The rest of the Ash is laying in the pile also: The entire pile has already been limbed out by a tree service. Yes, that's a wonderful gravel driveway the entire pile is laying next to: It almost makes working up wood in July worth it!
