Wyoming Firewood
« on: October 16, 2012, 06:21:54 PM »
Hello Gang, It's getting cold and I'm going to have to pull me guys out the woods in Wyoming near Pinedale in the next month. I have many many cords of split Lodgepole Pine to unload and a Processor with conveyor. If anyone is interested in some great split and has a way to move them themselves drop me a pm and we can work something out at buy at the deck level.

Are you selling?

You must have picked up a processor.

Curious here. Where does one get rid of that many cords of lodgepole pine firewood?
Where is the market?
What would be a per cord price for the final consumer?

Beenthere,
In Montana and I assume Idaho and Wyoming as well, pine is all we get for firewood for the most part. The only oak I get to burn is the scraps from a furniture project. You guys in oak country have it pretty good  :) The majority of wood that I have burned is pine and very dry cottonwood.  :(

Well yes I guess we in the midwest are blessed with an abundance of hardwoods .Fact it's doubtful that within my entire life time I've sawn more than a dozen pine type trees ever .

Here in Oregon guys get around 150-180 delivered and split I believe. Lodgepole is truly good firewood. It's like the "hardwood" of central Oregon. Not quite like oak or madrone though!

I have good luck burning lodgepole pine if I give it some extra time to dry out. If I built a kiln to dry it I bet it would burn very well.

It's funny to hear of all this. I would expect lodge pole burns pretty good. Here in my area.Maine, you could not give any of our softwood away to burn. I wonder if lodge pole is like hemlock here. hemlock will burn kinda slow and will coal down some. The white pine will burn uncontrollable and when the wood is gone so is the fire,no coals.

I know that Lodgepole is probably the most popular firewood here. There is demand for it. Probably because there are no hardwoods around here and a good hard pine is the best you get.

Yes,I read the thread and understand about not being able to get good hardwood,that is why soft wood is used and in demand. I was just saying what we have here and find it a totally different situation.
Just like in the maple sap thread. There is a member in VA that is tapping red maple now. he said his season wii be done and mine will be just beginning in March. Odd to hear that.

Mkindustrial, you import wood 225 miles? That seems like a long distance to still be able to make a profit. You must have a big rig and deliver many, many cords of wood at one time. I would think that's the only way to get a little money shipping that distance, with fuel prices.

Saw a pamphlet for a Canadian prairie OWB maker who said that poplar was the best wood available to burn unless you can get white birch which is better. In central Ontario white birch can be mixed into a load of hardwoods but if the percentage is higher than 5 the customers will generally complain.  A logger I know offered me birch only at 20 a face on his landing while he normally charges 32 a face for mixed hardwood. Interestingly enough white birch in a bag will be more than other hardwoods since it is marketed as a more decorative wood for a fireplace. Like presentation being important at a fancy restaurant.
