Junk Wood Piles


   When professional loggers clear cut a woods, they often leave huge piles of treetops behind. These are too slender to be profitable for timber professionals but can make great fire wood. Talk to the property owner and chances are they would be happy to have you get some of it off their hands.

Slab Wood or Pallets
