Firewood here is $300+ a cord. Every pickup load I bring home from the woodlot is a $100 bill in my pocket. More than $30/hr I figure. :D Brought one home this morning already, all split to.
Move'n on.

I think your proximity to DC is a very large pricing factor wyatt.  I can buy sawn 4/4 walnut planks for $15 each on FB.    

Just cruised the firewood market [its still warm here so hasnt really started yet] and guys are selling a nice rick for $40 picked up or $45 delivered local.  Imagine how much your world would change if you were surrounded by people willing to load, deliver and unload a face cord for $5.   Thats like 2 bucks an hour.
These are shipped to Ohio 6 hour drive. :D

Mike, where you live at in middle tennesse? I live ib south cental Ky, and walnut brings pretty good here, sold 9000 ft for a $3+ avg the other day, tree run.  They were good walnut, good size, with quite a bit of veneer in them.  Probablty could have got more, but needed to get them moved quickly.

Since i used my real name like a shmuck, i try to keep my location a little more private to not hand it over to identity thieves.  With my location you can pretty much get enough info to clone me.  I can hit kentucky in an hour or so.

This week's HMR shows hardwood lumber prices up for many species.  Red oak lumber is moving briskly and is in short supply.  China has come back into the market.  Cherry is moving up, hard maple, walnut, and white oak are moving up.
Cherry still on move? Fold or go all in? Got some decent stuff that will get bird peck soon if the last decade has taught me anything :o


@mike_belben the trick is to have no/bad credit or any money so if they steal your identity they are real sorry about it afterwards and try to give it back :D

Thank you for the quick response! I am small time and have not developed good markets, especially for good wood but there is a local buyer I will try to send a small load to.
NYS DEC stumpage report consistently shows all species in my area selling for literally half what it does in the rest of the state, so that's cool ::)

My buddy and his son are hauling long loads locally, mostly spruce and fir. It is hardly worth getting out of bed for what the mills are paying but payments are due on the 3 year old Pete and nobody wants it. The old KW is long paid for but still paying its way and she wants him out of the house. :D Yet prices at the lumber yard are insane but it is still moving, builders are being kept busy. Where is the money coming from?

One of the few plusses at this time to being old and retired is still have a steady base income ,feel for those who are still trying to make a $$$$.  I don't have to saw if weather is cold, wet, or too hot. I have plenty of my own wood ( Doug Fir ) on my place here in C.G. OR. and lots of large, 10" to 36" juniper (ERC?) on our acreage near Bonanza, OR, so plenty to saw at no cost. feel pretty fortunate.

Just got the 3rd quarter stumpage report from the U of Ma. Prices on the stump have gone up considerably. W/oak went from $75. to $200. Cherry $50. to $175. Sugar maple $175. to $300. Yellow Birch $40. to $175. Black birch up $5. Lot of others from 5 to 45. Even Hemlock came back on board at $30. All prices MBF.
Holy cow, that is an amazing variance in price from low to high. Sheesh, that def gives proof when one has the general strategy of not selling your timber unless you know it's an up market. That's worse than the oil business, lol.

What's the price of sawdust nowadays?  I know my kitchen cabinets are made of it. Here in Wisconsin, farmers are buying semiloads of it for their cattle bedding.  A farm I drove truck for made their own and sold it to other farms.  I think to the tune of $150 to the ton.  Sounds better than pulpwood or as good as sawlog prices.  The bigger farms need it for milk cows or they get more infections in their udders.  Anyone have anything to share on this?  Don't quote me on the price per ton.
