    I put a post on Craigslist for somebody wanting to get rid of some fruit trees. A lady emailed me saying she has some dead and alive apple trees, and said I could have as much as I needed.

    I'm guessing about 6+ months to season the wood from a green tree. What features should I look for in a tree that isn't green to know if it's worth taking?

    If anyone is in East TN and would like to get some of this wood, PM me and I will let you know when I get it. I don't smoke enough [​IMG] yet to use all the wood.

    I emailed her on Thursday saying that I didn't forget. My truck was out of commission for a bit, but it is up and running. I should be able to get at it this coming weekend.

    As long as it ain't gettin pithy (no I don't have a lisp) ya know, soft er headed fer rotten, er real moldy, it should be good ta go. Long as woods solid, it's usable. Got some that be several years old an still usable.

    Keep it outa the weather an split it down as small as is useable and it will dry faster an keep longer. I store all mine on pallets an covered.
