Looking to bring wood back from Virginia

Hey All - If you know of a location that I can get some wood to bring home, please let me know!  I will be in Leesburg Va, just north of Dulles Airport.  I will be there for 5 days starting Sunday 3/13.

I will not have tools, but i can pack back up to 50# of wood for my turning habit affliction...  Cheesy

Help a guy out!  They don't let me out very often! Shocked

Please check with your state forestry agency first, to see if any woods are quarantined in Virginia, your state, or any states you will be crossing.  Asian longhorn beetle and walnut's thousand cankers disease are just two horrible tree killers that are too easy to spread accidentally.

Excellent point Don!  I am quite careful and mindful of the rules.  Although the trees we have here are not usually susceptible to the bugs from warmer areas, I remove bark and then look over the wood. Additionally, I seal the wood in clear plastic then, if possible, I treat the wood to a microwave session  Thumbs Up.

Thanks for pointing out this important responsibility for all of us to follow.  Cool

There is a Woodcraft store in Leesburg Va.
As far as local woods, check with a tree service, and visit their job site.

When I used to live in that area (back in the early 80's....went to HS at Ashburn)   the place to look would have been any of the housing developments....though from looking at google earth, all those places have long since completed their projects....not sure where to look anymore....some of the golf courses perhaps??

Craigs list for locally cut wood, but you have to be ready to act as soon as the ad is posted.
