[NAFEX] Make extra money from fruit trees

Here is a money-making idea for many of you fruit growers.
I put all of my fruit tree prunings on a pile. I have a
chipper/shredder and I shred it all onto a tarp, then bag it up. Yesterday
I spent about an hour and a half shredding it. A fellow from a local
farmers' market buys it, bags it and sells it as smoker wood for barbecuers,
etc. I charge him 50 cents per pound. I did 90 pounds yesterday. If I
didn't own a chipper/shredder, I'd rent one from the local rent-all store.
Before I bought a chipper/shredder, I used to load up all of my prunings
in my pick-up truck and rent a chipper/shredder right at the rent-all store
because that was a whole lot cheaper than renting the machine and bringing
it home to do the work.
