NEED wood waste

Have almost finished my rebuild of the generator which used to be at my office and is now at home. Got a nice stainless steel tank, and heavy metal for the gasifier. Now just looking for a source of wood waste from landscaping, tree trimming and such as all my friends in the business seem to have moven out of south Florida and I have given the contracts and most equipment to my employees and have gotten out of the maintenance business, after dealing with frivolous lawsuits. I need new contacts for yard waste as my hobby is in environmental/ alternative energy and it would be nice to find someone willing to drop of logs or wood chips to see just how long I can run this system before breakdown. Also looking for a new place to move to so if anyone knows of an area that's affordable and where people tend to be friendly and speak English, I am open to suggestions!

It uses a regular gasoline engine and a home made gasifier. Burn wood with low oxygen, filter the gasses produced and suck it right intot he intake. Simple technology, are you interested in building one?
