At the moment pallet logs are bringing as much as $.60 bd/ft Doyle. Using a 400ft/cord conversion that's a $240 per cord log cost if you just sold the logs rather than process them. Now I know the blocks/cutoffs etc. aren't marketable in that manner but the "processor" quality poles sure are. Figuring $100+ per cord for processing I doubt fuel the value is worth $350-$400 the stuff needs to bring. Other than "ambiance" buyers it wouldn't sell here for that money as fuel.

Wow.. To hear pallet being higher than switch tie is really something else.  Im gonna have to make some calls.  Its a real tough thing to keep the lumber trees you are growing with a hungry market like that calling.

Thatís my issue stave buyer. Iím gettin 60 cents for pallet logs so my firewood pole lot is dang near empty. The other problem is the clearing crews I buy from are doing the same thing.

Also back a few pages you guys were talking about delivering pallets or crates of firewood and placing right where customer wants it. Iíve looked into that too in the past. A like the Posch wood wrapping system real well but very pricey. Wraps a whole pallet of wood thatís thrown in the metal drum instead of stacking. Itís then wrapped in stretch plastic netting thatís cut down as the customer gets closer to the bottom of the pallet and ultimately discarded when wood is gone. All that needs to be picked up and reused is the pallet itself. Thereís aNother manufactured advertising in the loggin magazines that is the same kind of system as Posch. Just canít remember the name but itís orange and instead of the metal drum being filled being round itís square like the pallet. Just not sure if the wood being thrown in and not stacked would still stand up nice taking curves stopping and goin on the delivery route. Also thought a Moffit lift on a straight truck would be a good delivery system but Iíd want something thatís low enough to get in a garage where most customers would want it. Just try not to hit somethin at the customers place!!!

Would the premium on wood packaged and delivered with these systems be enough to pay for the system ??? ???

Thatís the big question. A few years ago I inquired about that Posch system. It was around $18,000  :o  How much can you really get out of a cord or pallet of boutique wood?  That surely depends on your market and marketing.

 Can you label your firewood ďNon-GMO, Pesticides Free, Sustainably Cut Earth FriendlyĒ then charge a premium to the city folk?   ;D

I was Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) certified, had to be when I was logging, and tried using that as a marketing ploy for firewood.  Nobody around here cares.  I didn't recertify during the whole Covid thing.

Geez, thats where I was 10 years ago and it was low at the time. How do you guys put fuel back in the equipment at those prices? I usually make up the bulk of the margin with a high delivery fee...

try doing it at $150 a cord, but the market wants ricks, and wants it stacked to be sure you measured right.
