    Black Walnut and Choke Cherry

    I just got back from vacation and returned to a war zone in the yard. A bad storm took down several trees including choke cherry, black walnut, and box elder. I have to go back to work today, and I will do some prep work.... but free wood to anyone that desires it.

    I live in the NW burbs of Chicago (Crystal Lake / McHenry area) and you can have as much free wood as you would like. I have 6 large trees down. All trees will be cleared on Sunday, Aug.14, 2011. If you can't make it on that date, let me know what you are interested in, I will cut some lengths for you and seal it for your pickup later. I hate the idea of black walnut going into the firewood pile.

    Thanks Larry,

    I just thought with the expense of wood lately that someone would be able to benefit from some free wood. I am a single father of 3 and the kids (ages 3, 5, and 7) take up a considerable amount of time. I took some pieces for myself for projects that I have on my to-do list, after that.... just trying to pay it forward. Have a great rest of the weekend.

    I was just up there visiting my relatives in Lake In the Hills. Got off the train In Crystal Lake.

    I don't think American Airlines would have liked me taking a tree trunk with me, but if I'd had my truck I'd have been on it in in instant!

    Great Gesture Mack! Let's hope some one can take advantage of it
