I found a great source, and on the Ft Worth side-Haltom City, to be precise. They charge $65.00 for a level pickup truck load, that you load yourself. The wood is mixed, seasoned and unseasoned.

Their phone number is 817-222-9494, and the girl there said they expect to completely sell out this year. I called the guy up in Allen and he's already sold out, so this ain't bad. I'd post a pic of my truckload, but there's a problem with Image Shack.

Is this supposed to be cheap? Cut your own from storm trees for free!

Check the prices lately in the DFW area, and yeah, it's cheap. The best around was the guy in Allen, but he's sold out. And believe me, he had stacks of wood about 15 ft. high, so the supply must be getting low.

It's all split. I have to plead ignorance on the type of wood, other than knowing it was mixed. My truck is a regular sized F-150.

I used to have some boards on the bottom, but they rotted and when I started cleaning up the yard, I trashed them. Now, I've just kept the same pieces of wood on the bottom (but I ought to keep my eye out for new "old" replacements, I guess).
