If anyone is looking for and has the means to remove a 8’ tall by 6-7’ wide, 1 ton Oak Burr, I spied one in a wood pile, free for the taking. The Pile is located in St Cloud Mn. at Whitney Park. The Huge Pile of trees started after a July 1st storm that knocked hundreds of trees over and with a couple other storms since the pile still remains.
People can collect firewood and such. I sign does say No Private Wood Haulers.
I have collected some nice Apple, Walnut and Red Cedar.
I wish I had the Means and a Spot to put that Burr at my house, she is a Beaut!

Looks like it would be a great capture. I nope that someone can use it for something else than firewood.

Find a buddy with a chain saw and buy him a case of beer or 2 and help him cut it up in big enough chunks to haul away.

I wish I could transport one that big too. I’m building a trailer with an A frame on the rear to pick up bigger logs. I can’t wait till it’s finished. It’s also too far from East Tennessee to do me any good as well. bummer
