What's the selling price for a cord (128 cubic feet) in your area of seasoned firewood?

Firewood around here is sold by the face cord, or rick, and not a true measure, but it figures out to about $133.33 a full cord, picked up by the buyer. I know one man who will deliver a dump bed at $50.00 a rick (18" length), but requires a minimum of five ricks, which is a full bed. Wood is mostly white and red oak, with a smattering of other oaks, ash, walnut, and maple.

I'm selling June split cord for $200. I never see firewood in this area go for more than $250, mostly $225 when people get desperate.

That's pushing a button and dumping, never wanna and never will stack.

It's all over the board here.  I see it advertised for $55.00 to $90.00 per 16" face cord.  That's 165 to 270.00 dollars per 128 cubic foot cord.  Quite a range this season.  We'll see where it settles as people begin to realize that winter IS coming.

WE sell only softwood here in our area, given the only preferred hardwood is white/paper birch and it is very limited in growing site and less than 1 percent of our forest. [sells for about $350 a cord if you can find it]

Generally 3 choices [Note prices in Candian dollars]
- Western Larch [tamarac] is $275 per cord
- Douglas fir $250 per cord
- mixed white wood [lodgepole pine and white spruce] $175 per cord
Wood is cut 16 inch and split - free local delivery, $1.00 per mile one way out of town.

So I often wonder, how often do you westerners who primarily burn softwood clean your chimney pipes?  Most of us easterners are hardwood snobs and wont burn any softwood, because we have the choice.

From $225 before January 1, to $250 after January 1, per cord - mixed hardwoods, dumped or thrown off.  Upcharge for mileage.

I like how you operate landscraper- so for me it's $280 before New Years and $300 after but I rather dump, already touched this wood enough. Full cords = 4 x 8 x 4 and the "upcharge" is the word of the day, perfect to cover mileage.

We are getting $450 per cord  or $160 on 1/3 cord. It comes in a tote bag which we charge $15 for if they bring back the bag they get $10 credit on their next bag.

I burn almost all spruce (it is what I can get for the taking) in my tarm boiler with a insulated ss chimney.  I have yet needed to clean my chimney in 15 years. When the wood is dry and burned at a good rate not smouldering for long periods of time there should be no issues.

Yep, a good burning fire needs air. The main reason we also burned the denser hardwood is the realestate is far less than burning spruce and fir and tamarack. I've never gone out in the snow bank for my firewood and am not about to start. :D

Hilltop366,
If you don't mind, which Tarm, what is the inside diameter on your flue pipe, and how tall is the stack from boiler to cap?

Have an OT50 and thinking of reconfiguring the exhaust system.


As to the topic at hand, green seems to be averaging low to mid+ 200's (big range in quality), seasoned at or north of 300.

$275 seems to be the average here.  The phone will now be busy with the proverbial "got any dry firewood" queries now that labor day is behind us.  My response is always the same.  No, but can sell you some fresh from the vine.
