These saws are excellent on green timber and dry as well. Coughlans folding saw. Light weight I have several and have put some through hell cutting hundreds of pieces of wood with them. They can be found for $10-15 here in Canada and prob cheaper elsewhere. Stuff them in a pack or your back pocket and off you go into the woods foraging.
I got a cheapo folding one ( $7-8 as I recall) at Harbor Freight a few weeks ago because I couldn't find my Fiskars version. Works ok (harvested about a dozen blanks when I was on vacation back in January) but I did notice the plastic at the joint had whitened (from its original red) due to stress.
I used to use a bow saw but bought the Fiskars because I got tired of the bow part catching on things.
