Everyday for my area there is free wood listed.  Go to that site and check it out for your area.  Make sure you look under the free link.  Just thought I'd share.

Ned, there is a listing for JAX, and then under "free", there is a listing for free firewood (OAK) in St. Aug.

Ned, just look in the phonebook for local tree trimmers/removers/surgeons, and see what they will give you “free”. They might even drop it off in your driveway if they are nearby (I can envision 6 to 8 cubic yards of trees and limbs in your driveway if you word your request the wrong way). Most of them have to pay the county to dispose of the trees they cut (by the ton), so anything you take would help them out.
I would be willing to meet you halfway again (this time we find an open BBQ joint), and share some of my stock with you. The only drawback to that scenario is the $45 in diesel fuel for the trip.

I have thought of that, but right now my time has been so limited I did not want anymore wood in the shop (never thought I would say that) but with the ever present specter of deployment, work shortages ect, I don't want to just have it rot.

It's a good web site.  I just missed an 8hp chain drive tiller in my area.  Ah well, maybe next time.  I always see lathes under tools for my area.  Look there and you may be able to find good deals on tools and the such.

I agree, good site, if you come across any more let us know. I just wish there was a site closer to home Cry

I have family in Charleston which is only an hour and a half away and it is listed Cheesy
