Near me, when they take out orchards (normally almond or walnut), they grind the wood right then and there.
They have a backhoe where they knock the tree over, then lift it into the grinder.

Not that hard to do.....

If it's rough chip, that will work for certain things as is.....if it's a finer shread, that's the stuff I like......heck, get a gunnysack full anyway.......

Suppose the main thing is to get back out there before they chip & load the whole deal & you end up trying to smoke with dirt...... Mad Shocked Very Happy

Thats sad all that good smoke wood being fed to the.... Chipper! Call on some good ole boys from a local college or trade school with pickup trucks. Tell em your'll buy them a keg & cook the BBQ for there next party if they'd fetch this pile for ya.
You'd have it all in your back yard. Wink Very Happy

Very nice score indeed..!

That pile looks like it will last you a while provided you dont start using it for heat.

I have been without apple wood for a while now. I have been using hickory and cherry. With the Akorn you dont need a lot of wood.

Thanks for the comments guys.

Yeah, it'll be hard not to put it into the wood stove this fall.
Although I can get all you can pallet wood scraps from work.

I made up a rack of small splits to use for smoking. I split it
up to season quicker. It is taking on color nicely! Smile

I would gladly pay $200 for a cord of apple. Here in Nebraska, the only place that I know of that sells it, is charging $700 a cord.
