Help in the Wharton Twp, Potter County area

I have a large willow tree that is currently being cut down on the small parcel that my hunting camp is on in Conrad, Wharton Twp, Potter County. The guy that is cutting down the tree (about 60-70 ft tall) needs somewhere local to dispose of the remnants (trunk and chipped branches) so he doesn't have to haul them 25+ miles to his normal dumping area. This would add $$$ to the cost. I was wondering if anyone had a large parcel in the area that would allow him to dump the wood. He is insured if there were any problems. My lot is the size of a postage stamp so I have no where to put it. It's willow, so it doesn't burn well and it stinks. Thanks for your help if you can provide any.

Re: Help in the Wharton Twp, Potter County area

I'm right over the mountain from ya but really can't help you out.
If it was good burning wood I'm sure you have some takers.
Several locals post on here, maybe they will chime in
with some options.
Good Luck.

I called that guy you turned me on to and he was a little leary due to a recent shoulder injury and the size and location of the tree. Gary Troutman from Roulette came down and dropped it for me.

Pigsty - there are guys that have outdoor woodburners who will burn just about anything. The guy with the little farm about 1 mile from the Old Tannery would probably take that wood.

Didn't think about that. I believe they have one down at the Wharton Store and Tavern. I'll give them a call. Thanks for the suggestion.

Re: Help in the Wharton Twp, Potter County area

Just read this on one website in reference to burning willow..."Low density, lights up very easily, burns hot and fast. It really does need to be well dried before you burn it, and it takes a fair while to dry; willow is a very wet wood. If you burn it wet, it will definitely gunk things up. Burnt dry, the only problem is the copious amounts of ash it makes."

None of that is an issue in an outdoor burner.
