do any of y’all sell or know approximately what the price of a cord of kiln dried wood would be around here? we are interested in building a kiln and want to know if y’all think it is worth it? from what we could tell it was about 100 bucks more a cord.

Not sure abut over there but over here we charge $100 more per cord. That just about covers the utility costs and labour involved to kiln dry. So you don't make much more in the way of net profit, but you do end up selling a quality product and build a good customer base.

 Kiln dried wood is free of bugs and fungus.  In Virginia, there are several areas that are quarantined for different pests and cankers.  To sell firewood and move it out of those areas, it must be kiln dried and you need to approved by the guvment.

As the wood is drier, the bugs are also not interested in it as much.  You can store the wood safely indoors, say if you have a furnace in the basement.

That's only if the firewood is heat treated for the appropriate amount of time.

Just to be clear, NY has NOT banned burning firewood. It was a suggestion from the Fed which the state is not pursuing at this time. That was discussed in another thread with many links and documentation, but unfortunately it turned political and was put in the restricted section so many folks can't read it. Sorry.
