    My mother in law wants me to cut down a decent size (10") crabapple in her yard. Wondering if its worth my while to cut it up. Apple is fantastic firewood, not sure if crab is too. I know the best kind of wood is free wood, just wondering if its worth the time and gas, or if its junk.

    i cut one down last year. i havent came across it in the pile yet. maybe next season ill find it. but i agree free wood is good wood. hell this year i burned a ton of pallets and prolly 2-3 cord of pine just cuse i could get it. it was more work but i prolly only used 2 cord or hardwood this year :D

    As I've stated before, those are by far the best wheel weights I've ever seen on a tractor. :cheers:

    ........... is Sweet. I've burned both apple and crab apple. I liked the apple better. But free is definitely a bargain. I would spend the gas/oil money on it.
