I was contacted as the leader of a local woodworking club by someone who was having some trees taken out for a new septic system. They were eastern red cedar and stood quite tall, with the first branches at about 20 feet, and diameters around 12-18 inches. They were cut, at my request into 9 foot lengths. I had already talked to a guy who would saw them into boards and kiln dry them. Even had a few project plans. So, yesterday, I go with another guy with the trailer to pick them up and ‘oh shit’ there was another guy there had had them almost all cut into firewood chunks. There was one long log left and some three foot sections, which we promptly loaded and left with. Not sure how the sawing and drying of three foot sections will turn out. Still fuming in frustration. Thanks for listening, just needed to vent, even though that won’t put the logs back together again.

I can fully understand your frustration. I hate when sweet deals turn sour in the palm of your hand.
