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.
