I would ask at the farmers market,produce markets or fruit stands. They should be able to point you to some orchards that need trimming.
Lots of beautiful country/farms out that away.

A pickup load would do me for sure. Ideally some hickory and either apple or cherry.

I don't remember the name of it, or if it's still there, but there used to be a tree service that sold firewood on Todd's Road. I bought several loads of hickory from them. They separate the hickory from the rest, but would let you kind of pick through what you wanted if you were buying a pickup load. That was maybe ten years ago, so like I said, not sure if they're still there. I know they built that area up...

Lots of good info here!! When talking to the local orchards... be sure you are talking to someone who can tell you the correct answer. That may sound odd of me to say, but some of them employ so many people that not all of them know if they even sell or give away such things. Make sense? This time of year should be a good time to hit the orchards up.

What I have done, is look to craigs list. Yes that can be a gamble as far as getting what you pay for, how it is seasoned, etc.... But I have found several on there that specifically state oak, hickory & cherry. The last guy I got a hold of brought me all oak and cherry, sure there are a few other logs thrown in by mistake. But I can see why they did judging by the outside appearance.

Hope this helps, and if you find some good sources post them up here and share the wealth!!

This is an older guy out of sadieville that says he can get all the hickory you want. Hes supplies several BBQ restaraunts around Scott/Fayette counties. VERY reasonable prices. He's delivering half a truck load to me for $50 on friday. He said it's $50 a truck load if you pick it up.

I asked about cherry and apple and he says he rarely gets them. He said he comes across black cherry every once in a while, but hickory is what's in abundance. I didn't ask about anything else. From the sound of things, he's been supplying a couple guys in the area for years and they probably get the first call when he hits apple or cherry.
