one last thing I thought of, if you use a tree service, ask them if they have anything that you can get from them. Years ago I had a very large maple to take down and I'm using them again to remove some of the mulberry that is endangering my power lines. I asked them if they had small amounts of smoking wood that I could pick up somewhere. They are going to bring a hickory limb out to me when I get them to take care of my mulberries. They also said that if I need anything else, just call and they can set some outside their fence for me if I let them know I'm coming.
