    "Fugitive tree climber." Haha. That makes it sound like he's on the lam in the treetops.

    Maybe it's a coded ad for something else.

    I keep seeing these adds and with most of them, I can't seem to find a single "tree" in image! Kindling at best, if someone wanted to go through and snip/break up all the twigs.

    I know most are just efforts to get someone else to do their cleanup work for them.

    If someone is willing to do it, then more power to them! Haha

    I see him post every couple weeks. The first time I saw one of his other adds I emailed him and told he's an idiot. I think he want $600 for a tree that fell over and it was barely passable for firewood.

    I give away alot of cut and split firewood, over 12 cords last winter. If a man needs to heat his home and he is a little down you gotta do the right thing. They have to pick it up, and I hate thieves had to install cameras, last winter.

    I always see the same ads near me and in most of the ads end the same way. "If you don't have insurance, don't bother inquiring." And I always think who is going to cut down ten 60' oaks that are right next house for free and have insurance.

    That one got the "belly laugh" -- good grief. It reminded me of the John Wayne quote --"Life is hard, it's even harder if you're stupid!"

    You'd have to be pretty hard up to mess with those twigs to heat the house!

    Well this laugh is on me. I respond to an ad that said they had some big rounds left and some down maple. The lady calls me and said the power company took the tree down and the big rounds were left there. So I get there she unlocks a gate I go in and she pulls off tarps and what do I see? Oak rounds that are dry rotting:angry:. I almost took off but she was alone and in her 80's. She stood there and watched me split it and load it up, about a half cord. She tells me another guy came by and told her it was trash. Oh well it will burn in my OWB and I took pity on her. I should had known when the ad had no pics. I had to leave with a bed full of oak and leave the down maple, she never called back to say when she would be around to open the gate for the maple and her phone # came up private
