Certain City's in the NE part of Anoka county are going to cave to the residents to clean up their properties. Make the money when you can.

Dumping fees? For the wood? Aren't there people who will take the wood for free?

Or use your downtime to split it and sell it for firewood.


plenty of "Available" wood already. id have to be a good salesman to get people to buy wood right now. i do have a splitter, but, i dont have enough land to store it for a year while it dries. i make plenty of $ BUYING it already split then selling it for double what i paid for it, and the customer still gets it at a pretty good price.

plus the junk wood like willow, boxelder isnt worth much.

well, off to go do estimates for some of the 18 people who called yesterday, and 10-14 who called today

im tired.
