For the last 2-3 months I have driven by a very tempting scrounge opportunity in my neighborhood. A land owner had decided to drop every tree in a 1/4 mile long fence line into a growing rye field. A logging company dropped he trees, some of them falling on an old fence, but the tops all landing in the rye field. I had my hands full with finishing up the fruits of last season's scrounging, so I did not stop to ask. I'm regretting that now. I watched a guy with one saw and truck "nibble" at the select trees all the while making a mess of the limbs and leaving tracks through the rye. I kept wondering how long it would take him to clean up the 30-40 mature trees at the pace of 2 truck loads a day, maybe. The guy hasn't been back to cut in weeks and I noticed the rye had been cut for straw. They couldn't cut it all because if the branches and still fallen trees lying in the crop. Must have made the farmer mad. He sent his boys up to drag the branchless trees up to the road so I finally stopped and offered my assistance of time, equipment and money and they are going to discuss with their pop and let me know. Goes to show, should have asked from day 1. Would have had a happy farmer and I would have had more wood than I knew what to do with for a year or more. If you are a scrounger, please take care of your land owner. You are making it harder for the rest of us to score. Clean up your mess, be respectful of the impact to the property and do not impact their operation - whatever that might be.
