Anyone collect their own firewood in Vic Au? - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

    Thanks for the info. I've only collected a small pile and will have to seriously consider the cost of collecting my own wood versus having it delivered.

      Good on Vic gov...Still illegal to colllect firewood by the side of the road in QLD. Its classed as a "resource" in QLD even though the Gov has sold off the state forests.
      Got Busted by a council worker ( not in the bribane area either) collecting wood.... just smallstuff no axe or chainsaw... a little while ago he recons that I was doing more good than harm...as the amount of garden cuttings dumped was huge. so was the old cement, bricks, plaster etc

        Has anyone had any luck grabbing wood from companies while they are felling trees? I stopped by a site yesterday and asked a guy doing some stump grinding if I could grab the logs on the ground, but unfortunately the owners of the land had already claimed them. I should have asked him if it is something they normally allow.

        Anyone had any luck in the past?
