    Fire wood?


    Anyone have any wood? Looking to have a bonfire at my place a weeks from now and... well... you can't have one of those without wood. Hopefully not far from Marlborough MA

    Thanks!

    Re: Fire wood?

    Are you looking for scraps, like pallets, or real firewood because there are tons of free pallets on CL.

    Preferably real firewood that's already cut! But, I suppose pallets burn just as well... I think the only thing I have to think about with wood is making sure it's not treated, right?

    Re: Fire wood?

    I don't know a lot about them, but I suspect pallets are just ratty old pine that hasn't been treated. Someone who has some to give away can probably tell you. If that doesn't work PM me if Milton isn't too far to go. I have firewood that I usually sell every Fall.

    Re: Fire wood?

    should look to see if anyone is getting rid of any pine on CL for free...can't really sell that for anything other than campfire wood...i'm assuming there are a ton of pine trees that came down over the winter due to their root systems...or like was said above pallets...they usually get rid of them at stores and sometimes they are oak and sometimes they are pine...i have burned a lot of pallets in my pit just fine...bust them up with a sledge hammer/axe and toss them in...i have some cut and split oak that i'm going to put up for sale soon but i'm a good 75 miles from you

    Re: Fire wood?

    also look for old cedar fencing...most of the pine you will find won't be split cause it's not worth the time so you would want the smaller diameter stuff...get the fire nice and hot and place your "on deck" wood around the pit to dry out before you kick them in...drier lint starts fires well with good kindling

    pallets are generally junk hardwood, seldom pine, imported pallets are supposed to be irradiated, but some slip thru the cracks, The Emerald Ash Borer came in on a pallet from China to Michigan in 2002. Now, it's almost everywhere ash trees are and soon, ash in our forest will be gone, like the American Chestnut a century ago

    I have some pine and spruce you can have, but I’m in RI. I normally burn it myself for heat, but I simply have to much of it after the gypsy moths killed most of them on my property.

    I have an endless supply of pallets at my shop in East Providence, they make for great camp fires. You’re welcome to come grab as many as you’d like.

    You're welcome to come pick through all my stuff in Palmer. I have around 7 acres of woods, some of which was cut down about a year ago with a good bit of decent fire wood still laying around. You can even bring a chain saw and cut some from a few recently fallen trees if you want.

    Is that a serious question? Forensic entomology is a pretty extensive field, though they tend to stick more to criminal matters. I suspect they found that through simple science detective work.

    I totally would cut my own stuff if I had a chainsaw and was remotely handy with it!

    It was mostly in jest. I was going for a "Silence of the Lambs" joke but I guess it fell flat...

    Still, being to track down the source of a national infestation to a shipment to a particular state in a particular month is pretty impressive.

    SotL was the first thing that came to my mind, sadly enough. This is just conjecture, but I would guess that they had a batch of contaminated pallets and that's how they tracked it.

    Free pallets. You can--well, I can, anyway--break them down with a regular claw hammer in just a minute or two. They burn hot and fast.

    it was discovered in 2002 before they spread. entomologists have since been following the movement with the purple traps you occasionally see hanging from trees.

    fwiw, once it discovered in a county, that county is quarantined, you can import firewood from a non quarantined county, but yer in deep dudu if ya get caught exporting firewood from a quarantined county

    it's how these invasive pests spread, people bringing firewood from home to camp

    Aren't there firewood quarantines in effect? I don’t think it's legal to bring firewood across state lines in New England. Specifically because of the Elm Borer. Jus' sayin'.

    Yes. My county has been "quarantined" (Belknap county, NH). As with many epidemics similar, if people just didn't do what they weren't supposed to fuckin' do, this wouldn't be so widespread.

    Out-of-state firewood is banned in both NH and ME. I don't know about the other states.

    I'll be damned if I can't solve a murder with the info I learned from a thread requesting firewood. I love you NESR.
