Hurricane Downed Trees
« on: September 21, 2020, 02:17:12 PM »
So I'm trying to get the word out for people to stop immediately cutting good trees up into firewood lengths and sending them to the landfill in the hurricane affected areas (in which I am located). I know people with serious damage have enough other things to worry about, but I still think it would benefit all parties to slow down and not scrap all the logs. The volunteer groups put everything on the curb, but it would save them time and energy to just leave the whole log on the ground and let a sawyer come behind and collect them. I know it won't work in every scenario but it's just a thought. I've managed to help a handful of people get downed trees out of their way but I'm running out of friends and friends of friends with downed trees. Is anybody else down in that area out volunteering or have any contacts in the area that may be willing to cooperate with people running mills?

I know what you're talking about. There's way to much timber down around me to  even worry about the short logs. Across the river there plenty of logs to go around. I  am turning logs down, there's not enough hours of daylight to saw them up so i guess I will dump a lot in my pond.
when wondering about weather conditions call the dog in and see if he is wet
