    Ok so as some of you may know, here in the midwest we had quite an ice storm come through and demolish alot of trees, I infact was without power for almost 5 days.... well on the bright side of things, I have enough wild cherry wood to burn all year, not to mention a fair amount of apple wood...... and talked to some tree service guys today and they said they have all the hickory I could want........ WOOHOO, ok sorry, no one else i know would appreciate this, everyone thinks im being weird

    Why can't I come across a deal like this??? Can you use it this year or will it need to season till next year?

    Move to Missouri jaynik. We get a Spring and Winter supply. Tornados in Spring then ice-storms in the winter.

    Good find MC! It has to go somewhere so we might as well get some good use out of it.
