Wood/Log Recovery

I work for an insurance company, and I'm temporairly assigned to AL & FL after the Hurricanes. You can't imagine all the timber that's on the ground. I've seen some absolutely beautiful white oak trees up to and exceeding 36" - solid wood, no rot or bug infestation. They also have a tree here that looks like what we used to call "Tamarack" in the Pacific NW - not sure if this tree is the same, or if it's some type of Juniper, or just SYP. Anyway some massive trees just laying around that are going to be burned or chipped.
I know a lot of you in AL and FL are more concerned about your houses and business right now, but I hope someone is out there recovering some of this beautiful wood. Much of it is laying along public right-of-ways, and people have put it out in front of their houses for trash pick-up, or for burning.
I saw some recovey effort for logs along I-65 today by the State of AL, but there's so much - Just posting this FWIW for anyone. Also saw a guy with a pick-up and trailer with two massive oak logs on it - 36" + and 10' long. Sure wish I had a pick-up and a place to store some of it - oh, yeah, and time to recover it.

Yes anyone interested in wood should head for these areas. My wife is from western N.C. and the weather knocked down a >100 year old black walnut tree behind the family house. Got a be a ton of stuff that is just going to be wasted if not salvaged. I am sure many people would be happy to give the wood away. Several of the mountain towns have been destroyed by flooding. We are trying to get this tree taken to the local mill.
