If you are not with the troop, but are interested in providing wood, please reach us through the Contact Us page. Please do not dump wood on the property!
**We do not need any more wood for the 2015 BBQ**
We need hard wood trees that are relatively easy to split. We can not accept just any type of wood. The specifications are:
Whole tree trunks or section tree trunks no bigger than 18” in diameter. Anything bigger than that requires us to rent chainsaws with bigger blades and produces tree sections that are heavy and unwieldy. We can’t use small tree limbs that can’t be cut with a chainsaw.
Hardwoods: We prefer red oak, white oak and hickory. We do not want sweet gum (very difficult to split), poplar (produces ash, not coals), any kind of pine tree (cedar, yellow Pine, etc.). Pine cannot be used to make BBQ. Every time someone dumps pine at the hut, we have to get rid of it.
Contact Michael, Thom or David Blackley when wood is to be delivered: If it is possible to do this, one of us may be able to meet the tree service guys when they deliver the wood.
