When I saw David Marks talk about how he bought a tree toppled over in a storm I thought it was a great idea. Now that I’ve experienced a storm first hand, holy cow! I was partly prepared but acted quickly and I’m up to my eyes or full to capacity and its just great! There is mesquite and ebony cedars and a bunch of other stuff, still. Praise mother nature for the mild storm which surely filled every woodworkers cup in S.Texas. Some time has passed but there is still plenty available. I seen commercial wood collectors with there heavy equipment today. Tractor trailers filling up shipping out to the north and I’m now realizing this natural resource is worth gold. I’ve heard talk about how buyers are paying top dollar for trunks and I’m thinking its good to have a city job right about now. I cant stop bringing trunks home but I’m all out of space…...dilemma.

All wood workers should experience a good storm.

I am trying to talk SWMBO into letting me buy a mill, shredder, truck and trailer so that I can do post-storm logging/cleanup.

Not having much luck yet….LOL

Good luck and keep us up to date.
