Thread: Black Walnut- come and get it

    Black Walnut- come and get it

    I have literally tons of black walnut that I cannot use. I am opening it up for individuals to come and pick up what they would like to use. Please no commercial interests. I live about an hour NW of Chicago. All the wood is unsplit and ranges in length from 4 foot to 25 foot with the logs from 10 to 25" across. You will need a pickup or trailer and a chainsaw.

    Almost all of it is straight lenghts, with some exception. One piece in particular is perfect for setting up for legs... It has to go... NOW !!!! You can IM me here ... I will give you address /phone/ directions. No charge for the wood.

    I also posted this in the general section. Please delete if it is a problem.

    I also have one length of choke Cherry that I cannot use.

    Man, I wish I wasn't more than halfway across the country from you. Me and my pickup and chainsaw would be headed there right now.

    You could load up your truck with manzanita burl and finance the trip east selling that off along the way.

    Hey Vaughn, I'll meet you and Glenn in Amarillo, 'n I KNOW how to get to Chicago from there, (from the old Trucking days).

    If you guys are coming up ... bring a trailer to make it worthwhile. I can't believe that I am having trouble getting rid of this wood.

    I have a long list of people that want it for firewood... but I don't want that to happen.
