storm clean up

Wonder, if there's good money to be made, cleaning up storm damage. Chainsaw, and such?

I would think there is for sure. I needed 3 screws for my Stihl chainsaw and went to the local dealer yesterday. Now she's good to go. Figure I might need it to get out the driveway.

You would think that there'd be some good money in taking the dammaged hardwood trees and getting some lumber out of them, instead of chipping them up or using them for firewood.
I know, you all say that there'd be nails and stuff in those trees, enough to dammage saw blades at the mill. They have metal detectors for that.
Most pine / spruce trees can be righted and anchored back into place, but few seem to ever do that.
I wonder how much wrecked home lumber is reclaimed. Habitat for Humanity maybe?
Lots of looting, scavanging (stealing) metals of various types. Wires, pipes, etc.

The problem is "grading," viz. certification of raw trees for lumber mill use. You and I have no credentials to do this, and the mills find this essential task uneconomical: they buy only from sources whose grades they trust.

Not really...
It costs a decent amount of money to haul away and properly dispose of storm debris like that... You can't just dump it somewhere and the people who paid you to get rid of it don't want you to leave it behind on their property...

I think that if all you are doing is a little clean-up to stabilize the situation there should be quick money to be made.
I know of 2 people recently that could not get out of their garages because trees fell on the drive.
One was old widow down the hill and neighbors came in so she could get car out and much later she hired the professionals for complete clean-up.
Other was neighbor in back that moved to Florida and has house for sale. They hired some little guy that only has a pick-up truck, chain saw and lawn mower to maintain their property. Took them 3-4 days to get around to removing tree and all they did was cut it up and push to the side where it still sits over 2 weeks later. Since it only sits a few feet over my property line, I could probably take it but poplar is not that good a firewood.
