been doing about 20-30 full cords a week for most of the summer, probably a little over 200 cords now, have enough order's to keep me busy for the next two to three weeks but still have calls trickling in, every one is asking for seasoned and my only sales pitch is its air dried from conveyer to delivery.  :D

Corley5 did say that.

But the other two posts didn't, nor did the subject title. Without saying, have to assume full cords.

I'm at around 260 full cords with 15 or so outstanding.  And I haven't heard from the "first frost" customers yet - those who don't think about ordering firewood until some cold weather shows up.  I'm in southern VT.

Like Lee,  I'm in nc, so firewood sales are very last minute. I have people call and say" I've only got a day's worth of wood left".  I have sold 5 dump truck loads this summer, which is rare for me and have 16 cords ready.

243 face cord and 80 on the books. I'm sick of it too and I hired someone to help. (Part timer young kid) and I've raised my price twice. It's just to much to do after logging all day for another crew.

I picked up a 30, 5, 16, and another guy added to 10 to his already 10 cord order.  There's over 150 on the rolls again.  All figures are 16" face cords  ;) ;D  I really just want to log now  ;D

We are in central lower Michigan and have sold 3000 face cords so far with another 800 face cords ordered.  It's a small part of our operation so we're not really setup for the demand that is going on now.  In 35 yrs I have never seen this much activity for firewood, every producer has raised their prices and it doesn't seem to matter.  Some of the 8 ft firewood producers are booked through April of next year.

Just curious what going on in other places and what prices are.  Prices here are $60 for face cords delivered, and $90 to $100 for full cords delivered.  These are average prices with local deliveries, after 25 miles there is usually additional delivery fees.  This is prices for green wood, seasoned will bring more this winter.
