I get the same $$$ for red oak.  It's a harder sell.  Most of my clients with indoor wood burners prefer a sugar maple/beech mix.  It seasons quicker.  They don't want oak at all.  I do have some people who stay a couple seasons ahead and are fine with the oak but don't feel it's any better.  Most of it that I sell goes to OWB owners.  Most all of this 10 cords will go into our boilers :)

Corley, here people want oak. It is the preferred wood. Some sellers charge extra for all oak loads. I season my oak for one year just like all my other wood and it burns fine. I mix it in with everything else and my customers are happy.
It's funny how different things can be in different areas.

We're just north of the Oak range and don't have any on our property.  The best we can do is Maple, Yellow Birch and Paper Birch.  We have some Beech but it's small and pretty ugly.   I burn it all including Quaking Aspen , Spruce, Fir and Tamarack.  They all have their place and time for use.  The fire pit, Cook shack stove, cabin wood or Bonfire. :)
For firewood, my favorite is yellow birch.  For sawing, Balsam Fir.

Oak is king for heating the house and its a dud in the maple evaporator.  Hickory and pine sure wake the boil up.

This is surprising!  Ash seems to burn well.  
Beetle killed ash seems to burn well based on what I have cut down and the cut up.  Some areas of the tree can start to get dry rotted/ doughy.
