How to get free firewood

Recommended Posts

Oh yes...stitched right up.  delivered at night so i couldn't see it as he tipped but spotted instantly the next day.  every round was a huge crotch from a ~30" diameter tree, and utterly unsplittable,  he'd kept any straight ones back.  but the worst of it was the brick and the barbed wire...utterly riddled, it wound around and around in many rounds, in and out so much i had no way to work out where it ran...boy oh boy did i trash chains...lots and lots.  And I paid £50 for the load!  Still I've got particularly lucky with my usual guy, he's brilliant and won't take cash even when pushed into his hand.  It is a mix of loyalty to him and never ever wishing to get 2 tonnes of barbed wire and brick infested unsplittable ash again that stops me completing a listing!  The photos are typical of what i had to deal with....the insanely folded grain that meant even the stihl pro 8lb maul bounced off may not have been his fault but the brick and barbed wire he'd hit loads and it stuck in and out....he knew about that.
