The other day while heading home, I spotted a nice limb down from a Pecan tree at a house not to far from mine. Didn't know who lived there, but being I usually raid all the Church sites as I head up to North Carolina each year to get my Pecan wood; thought it would be nice to find some locally and not mess up my wife's van. Turned out my neighbor knew who lived there and told me where he worked. I pulled into his business (welder) and he came out to greet me. He said he would be more than happy to give me the Pecan wood for the smoker, but said it's full sun and awful hot at my house, "how about some of this?" Took me around the corner of his shop and there was a 40 foot tall (atleast) Pecan tree with several small to medium branches all over the ground. "Workin in the shade is alot nicer!!" Boy got that right I chainsawed up a bunch and headed to my neighbor with a nice table saw. I filled up 5- 5 gallon buckets of "ready to go" and some "green" Pecan wood. Outstanding. My wife is happy too.
