A fallen pecan tree around here does not last long.
In fact, people put ads in the paper to have these trees removed for a price!

In winter when we have ice, there is always a possible pecan wood harvest somewhere.
When i am driving, I am always on the look out.
I watched a power company trimming trees on my road and asked about the pecan trimmings. The owner told the crew if they took any of the wood, he would call the cops and have them arrested for stealing.

We have pecan and hickory trees everywhere around here.
I once found a tree knocked over and harvested from that tree for two years.
We also have abundant apple and peach groves here. After so many years of service they are all taken down with machines, (dozer) piled up and burned.
I hit these piles as often as I can.

I hate the thought of buying wood chunks. I have and will again if I must.
