Tree for all

Not a hedge - that's one end of the pile
We had a bit of a hurricane here the other week.  Our property escaped unscathed, but there were some power outages and minor property damage around the city.  The trees were the hardest hit.  There are some massive collection piles located around town, but this being St. John's its turned into more of a Have a Tree, Leave a Tree, Need a Tree, Take a Tree situation.

Nothing too special, a few sticks
I went down looking for nice straight sticks for harpoons and spear shafts and forked wood for adze handles.  While I was there I saw two cars dropping off torn branches and another truck sawing up chunks to take home to burn.  So in my short time there, it was 50/50 between people dropping off and picking up.
