Good save. That is a great haul. I sometimes procrastinate whether to grab some logs or not. Luckily, not too often, grab them when you can, you can always get rid of them. I wish we had some mesquite trees around here but I do get a variety.

This warrants a ‘YOU SUCK’!

Nice find, Jerry … wish I could happen on a score like that.

Nice grab, even though it looks like it was a lot of work to load, should be hours of fun working it.
No you suck from me! (I think it’s a juvenile saying)
Score..

That’s a great haul. I wish I could have been able to get over there for some.

The amount of good timber piled up and burnt can be quite shameful at times. Great to see you salvaging this load ready to put to good use. 90% of my timber is logs fallen over out in the bush and I have brought them home and milled them up. Also from neighbors cutting down unwanted trees in there yard.

Happy project making with you acquired logs.

Oh, man, they’ve been doing that for the last year along I-65 in KY. Wish I would have thought to grab some of the lumber before they toasted it…
Great find, Jerry, congrats!

Too bad that’s so far down south or I would be asking if there’s more piles. Good score.

There were still about 30 piles as of yesterday….. There has to be at least 50 Mesquite stumps and trees plus a ton of Palo Verde trees. I’ve reached my limit. Too old for the stash I have. If you think you’d come on out in the week or so, I could keep you informed on whether the stuff is still available.

A braggart!. I never brag on the work I have to do when I gloat. I never worked as hard as I did for one week collecting that stuff, and now it’s a waiting game. Gotta beat the bugs and the heat to keep the wood solid….

Jeff2008, it really is a shame as all this wood is wild, not domesticated wood. It’s rare to ever see a wild Palo Verde as large as I collected, and several of the Mesquites were even larger. I wish had the energy to gather all the Mesquite.

Azwoody, there’s still some time before they burn it..

Mahdee, I think I owe you something if you were Jinx….. Pm me..

Thanks for the sux, guys…......... Jerry (in Tucson)........ .. ......... ............ Jerry (in Tucson)

Thanks Jerry, I will be heading to woodys in about a month but I assume he will be loading me up with a lot of flat stock so I doubt I will have space for it. Besides, it will likely be gone by then anyway unfortunately. I have two kids who do sports, scouts, etc so finding time to make the trip is tough.

I’ll be cutting down two mesquites at my place this fall though, so I’ll have some good turning stock for awhile at least. I need lots of handles made (like 70+) so that will helps. I might grab some of the branches I know woody has laying around for this too so I can get started.

Are those T-111 stumps in that first photo? I always wondered where that stuff grows – guess it’s Arizona.
