Firewood
« on: June 30, 2014, 05:01:26 PM »
Anyone from Maine have any processor wood they would like to truck to the midcoast area? I have a ton of orders but struggling to get the wood. I have talked to a number of fw. dealers having the same problem. I had to lay the guys off last week because of no wood. I got a few loads in this week, but we will march through that by mid week. If anyone has interest in selling any please give me a call. 207-215-3886

Sorry, didn't mean to steal the thread. I have some land in Antrim and it has some Red Oak on it. I haven't called the logger back but since he is supposedly logging next door I want to see his work. My approach is to have it done neatly the first time with trees left behind that will be marketable in ten years.

Yea I know. There is a guy up in the county that is behind 300 cord and he is having a hard time getting wood. I also talked with another dealer from southern Maine and was having the same problem. I told our dispatcher today to stop taking orders because the way things are going, I don't see us being able to fill them.

That would be an expensive load to Maine! LOL.

It's all going for pulp around here.  Prices are high enough that no body wants to mess with it for firewood.

I think there is a bigger problem than just price. I know this winter was good going and the mills were begging for wood, when they should have been filling their pile down areas. I know a guy that was up to SAPPI this morning and he said they were using it up as fast as it was coming in. I am wondering if there are not enough contractors out there now? Log and pulp prices were suppressed for so long when costs were soaring around us, I think maybe the industry lost a bunch of contractors.

Firewood dealer. Wish you were close down here in SW. VA. I could give you all the firewood you could process.

Year before last I even pulled some down next to the paved road from a fence row I was clearing and could not give it away. Good wood too. Locust and cherry.

Have plenty of oak, maple, cherry, walnut etc. tops and short logs that I need to disappear. Most you can back a pick-up right to.
Give me a new saw chain and I can find you a rock in a heartbeat.

To bad the state of Maine won't allow that wood to come in from out of state. I know a bunch of flat bed guys that would love to have something like that for a back haul.

What are the restrictions for importing hardwood pulp?
