Good God! What a haul. I am green with envy.
Tell you what, drive the next truck load down here to North Carolina and dump it in my yard.

It's the father in laws truck the ol'79 Chevy C10. Going to have some great scavenging opportunities in the next few weeks to come. Think I have next year almost covered going to season up that red for the next couple years. The harman is finicky with the oaks and other really dense woods. I like to have some softer stuff to build the coal bed faster.

Looks like I found a little honey hole. Went with the red oak today. Looks like They are cutting the whole road so I'll have plenty of opportunities
Takes a long time to season properly but well worth the wait.

If you have the room to keep it stacked go back every day and pile it all up. Cut and split it later. Nice truck!

CMP and Emera are under a lot or pressure to up system reliability after years of underinvestment in trimming. I expect they are going to be dropping a lot of trees along powerlines over the next few years.

They're doing a lot of trimming in my area and there's tons of wood on the side of the road, I no longer have a truck, thanks to a big deer and its killing me. Might be time to get a new truck.

They’re doing a lot of trimming here in NH too the past week. Not a whole lot of oak because it doesn’t typically grow on the roadside here anymore. Lots of maple and ash though. Kills me every time I drive by it! I need to invest in a good trailer for the old Jeep!

Yeah, I've been hauling a 5x8 trailer with the old LeSabre. I'm trying not to load too much weight onto it, to preserve the tranny, but it's still a pretty good way to get a bunch of wood if it's close and you and can make an extra trip or two, and can drive slow.
Jeep should handle it better than a car, I'd think..
