    I happened to talk to a fellow who operates Cider Keg Auction (formerly Cider Keg Orchards) near Kingsville, MO, east of KC, MO.
    The Easter freeze in this area this spring, combined with the ice storm 3-4 years ago did in his orchards. He lost over 300 apple trees and says they all must go. Will sell the wood by the pickup load, or however you work out with him, you cut.
    He said there is a good bit of wood on the ground that is seasoned.
    Lotta apple wood available if you are in the area and interested.

    Found the business is still listed as Cider Keg Orchards and is located at:
    1633 NW 50 Hwy., Holden, MO 64040 816-566 2106
    Holden is close to Kingsville.

    Got any idea on price? That's about 65 miles away, but the ol' truck only gets about 8 miles to the gallon, so that's about $50 bucks right there.

    Peculiarmike, I know this is an old post but just curious if you stay in touch with this guy and if he has any wood left.
