Go figure. I think the logging industry might have stumbled on that one, too.

What about moving the rocks to Rocks and Valleys? No red tape other than getting permission from Billings Township to remove them. I doubt R&V would have any problem with a donation of rocks.

It just seems like a waste sitting in a overgrown field doing nothing.

I was thinking the same thing, I can't tell if you are serious or joking. I wouldn't put it past the DNR to ticket me for dumping rocks into a rock crawling course. Silly DNR.
