    Buddy of mine's dad is the greens superintendent at a golf course in the city. Ive posted a few times of some loads that I get from them. Generally there is soo much wood from the trees they remove that I take everything I can and they still have to pay truckers to come remove 18 wheeler loads.
    I trying to get my years worth of wood stacked and ready for the winter, and start splitting to put back for next year. I finished last years burning season with a full cord by my OWB, and 2 more by my barn.
    Heres a few photos, and more trees coming down weekly

    It's nice to have what I call "inventory" on site, to refill racks during the burning season.

    To me, "inventory" is anything from wood needing to be cut or split.

    Good for you for thinking ahead!

    Great resource for wood and looks like some primo btu's you've gotten out of there.

    Yes, you definitely have the hook up for free easy to get wood. Having a dump trailer is also key. How many cords do you burn through a year?
