    Sorry to hear about you never getting free firewood.....without a catch to it. I have placed a few ads on CL for free firewood and mentioned it was on the ground. One caller asked me to not get mad when he told me he sold firewood. I told him I didn't understand why i would get mad and he said when people find out he is going to sell it they get mad. I told him I have given away 10 oak trees in about the last 5 - 6 years and this was the largest so bring help but no logging equipment to mess up my yard. He asked how big the tree was and i told him I did not measure it but I did count the 175 growth rings so it was big, big and bigger. He asked how far he would have to carry the wood and I told him he could back his truck or trailer right beside it and to just take what he wanted and I would burn the rest. He didn't believe I was real and I didn't understand his disbelief. He and his 4 men took almost every single stick of it and left only sawdust. Never heard these types of stories from the other side of the fence so I didn't know but I have been asked more than once if it was split and if I could bring it to them.
     
  2. Oh yeah, the old “ we’re going to throw away but if you want to pay us will let you haul it off for us” scheme. I wonder how many calls they got.

    Well, since you are going to haul it off anyways, just bring it over to my house and dump it off. That will save you the landfill fee's.

    And that’s on sale!:wtf:

    Not a CL but Facebook Marketplace.

    That elusive black walnut. Good thing he’s not selling that super valuable piece for firewood prices.

    If I was looking to drop trees close to houses, I wouldn’t post an ad with a blown apart cut and what looks like loss of control at the stump

    I guess I need to start bagging my dust when milling cedar. It is worth more than the lumber is.

    What a deal. Maybe when you’re done he’ll let you wash and wax his car.

    Mostly cedar? Might have a little piss pine and a finger tip or two thrown in just for good measure. That makes it an alloy if I'm not mistaken!?

    Waygu is the U.S. equivalent of Kobe. And as you can see very pricey.

    There is a third piece of similar size included in the deal. I really am in the wrong bizness! I must have chipped a million dollars worth of walnut this year! Haha [​IMG]
