I seen 16" face cords advertised for $35.00 to $40.00 picked up and $50.00 to $60.00 delivered.  That's the same as last year.  I'm not sure how the guys doing the delivery thing are making it with the price of gas.  100" 10 or twenty cord loads have gone from $50.00 to $60 or $70 per cord depending on the supplier and there's a month wait for delivery.

Add in the paper says $75 fullsize longbed truck full.  Mixed hardwoods .....  our tennant called the guy and thats green delivered but not stacked.

I've seen the guy delivering in his old dodge longbed....  its full, but not heaped on.  It may have been heaped on when he left home and the rest just fell thru the rust holes :D

What prices are being paid to have the logs dropped at the house and you cut and split it yourself??

I am going to charge $200 a cord this year (hardwoods - mostly oak) to start and may go to $300 if natural gas goes through the roof. I am keeping my mixed woods for myself and selling the good stuff for as much as I can get.

The highest I've seen firewood this year was $130 a cord for barkless oak.

It has nothing to do with gas, it has to do with natural gas prices in the area. Firewood generally sells for whatever 100 gallons of heating oil sells for in most areas, though in this area (Atlanta GA) most people use natural gas. People would rather pay you $300 then Southern Gas Co.

In my area firewood in treelength or 100 " form is based on pulp prices and trucking. The bucked and split stuff is based on the above plus labour. We have very very limited access to natural gas and it wouldn't be 5 % for residents. Now out in the parairies and southern Ontario and Quebec is a different kettle of fish.
Move'n on.

I've been charging $50.00 / cord plus trucking for mixed hardwood firewood logs, in two cord loads. Lately it's been mostly tulip poplar, soft maple, and black birch. Most of the locals prefer the denser hardwoods, but they aren't complaining about the species mix this year. They also haven't griped like they usually do about crooked logs. Some I've had to almost screw on to the truck. We don't have a local market for pulpwood, so I move alot of firewood.

One guy who buys green wood from me in random lengths said he is now charging 300 per cord dry split delivered.  He is near out of his wood ready for this season and said he sold a half cord to someone and they offered him 200 for it.  Yes he delivered it. :D

I've heard some places to south of here charging $350 a cord. But I think it's because there is less sugar maple and beech down there. Alot of the wood is red maple and white birch down there. So probably trucking is a large part of their costs because people want sugar maple and beech firewood.
Move'n on.
