Good source for wood in Nassau County NY

  1. Hi all,

    I'm in western nassau county about 10 minutes from the Queens border (Long Island for anyone who may not know). I'm looking to find out wif there is a good source relatively local who has smoking woods, apple, hickory, sassafras, maple, oak, etc. Anyone have any thoughts?

    I haven't been able to find anything local to Long Island. Your best bet for fruit woods (apple, peach) is to go to one of the orchards out east, see when they will be pruning and ask if you can haul some away.
    Hickory chunks and chips are readily available in any local Home Depot or supermarket.

    When you see the tree trimmers for the town or the county out in the spring you can probably find some oak or maple.

    Mail order is probably the way to go for most others.

    Just a bit of a hint which has worked out well for many of my friends:

    Contact local tree services and landscapers. You just might luck out.
