    You will see forestry cords of wood in the woods etc round the uk. They measure 4ft x 4ft x 8ft.

    Looks like I have to eat my words. My wife got me roped into a friends and family freebie job. I haven’t seen it yet but it sounds like a huge evergreen in a city sized lot. But the lot is vacant and the tree has to be removed for a new house.

    I do it occasionally and I generally don't need the wood. This past summer I answered an ad on facebook for free wood. It was easy to access and it was just logs. I arrived and was delighted to find about two cord of black locus. Since mossy of my wood is ash, soft maple and a little oak I figured it was a win.

    On the other hand, I called a local CL ad last week and the guy wanted someone to cut in a driveway and a clearing to build. You keep the wood and have access to his splitter lol. No thanks. Don't need wood that bad. I told him I could cut for and hourly rate if he wanted to hire a cutter.

    Its funny how some think there unwanted trees are worth gold but when selling wood that split and seasoned others want to haggle or act like it ain't worth it.

    That's a fact. I got hit up for a "free wood" deal the other day by a Father who's daughter has some trees down near me. I actually called Her, out of respect for Him and She has yet to return my call. We'll see.

    Guy at work had cut down a bunch of trees by his house to clear out a wooded area he wanted to make into a yard. He said if I brought my dump trailer he would load the logs and I could have them for free just to get his yard cleaned up. I got five heaped up loads on my 7' x 14' dump trailer. It was a mix of soft maple and white ash with a couple of sassafras, some hard maple, a few other odds and ends. Quite the mix. I usually only burn oak and hickory, but this was just way too easy to pass up. Dumped them out next to my woodshed, cut them up, split the blocks, and stacked it all in the woodshed. Done. (I may regret this later this winter, but so far it is burning fine in my outdoor furnace. So we'll see how it lasts! One bonus is that those 12' logs had been stacked for quite a while through the drought we had this past summer. So, it was really REALLY dry wood!)
