Price of hardwood pulp or fire wood in your area?
« on: February 16, 2009, 08:36:34 AM »
What is the current price of hard wood pulp and or firewood in your area?  Stumpage, yard and mill price would be great.

Thanks in advance.

There is a crew cutting maple pulp at a friends place and trucking about 80 miles and they are getting $1300.00 for a tractor-trailer load!

I'm not that familiar with it, so I don't know how many cord are on a tractor-trailer load!

NW Virginia; hardwood pulp going for $3 - $4/ton stumpage.  That'd be about $6 - $8 per cord.  Firewood going for $150/cord average delivered price dumped on the ground.  Stacked, add $25 - $50 per cord.

  There isn't really pulp around here but firewood goes for 150 -200 per cord, delivered and stacked, depending on type and quality. Quite a few guys are cutting firewood trying to get by and the price was dropping a little, not now that there is a some snow.

Pulp and firewood $110 CDN per cord treelength here, mill delivered price. We have trucking zones here for each mill, the further away the higher the price. Private wood is moved on Forest Products Marketing Board contracts mostly with chain of custody papers from woodlot to mill. Marketing Board pays the truckers their agreed upon trucking rate on receipt of the scale slip. Stumpage $8-15 per metric tonne (2.5 metric tonnes HWD per cord). Some mills separate maple,beech,ash etc from birch species.

As far as trailer loads of wood, depends on weather they have self loader on the trailer. With loader 12 cords, without up to 16 cords.
Move'n on.

In my area it's around 125-135 a cord delivered tree length. You can add about 100 for stove length split.

I have been selling split ready to use firewood for $275 a full cord plus delivery all winter. I can't cut it fast enough. 8) I was out for a while and they would not take no for an answer. One day when I was out a lady called me and asked me how much? I said $375 for a full cord. She said can you get here today?

Here, $70.00 for a lairs cord (Pickup truck load) delivered and $125.00 for a full cord.

Most of it is unseasoned, cut in the summer and left until needed than sawed up. Thankfully, I don't have to buy i. I'be gone through 3 cords already.

Firewood here is a ripoff runs from $200 to $500 a cord and your lucky to get 2 face cords, green, soaking wet & covered with ice. I feel sorry for people who can't cut their own like I do. I have a nice base of firewood customers & they can see their wood a year before they get it, all split, stacked & covered. And I get top dollar. $125 pine & hemlock $350 hardwood $400 ash.  8) 8) 8).....Cheyenne

NW Virginia; hardwood pulp going for $3 - $4/ton stumpage.

just to clarify, they sellers are getting $3-$4/ ton from the buyers up there? That is alot stronger than what we are getting down here in "the swamp". Most landowners are only pulling $1 - $2/ ton and we dont know how much longer that will be available now that Stone has filed chapter 11 and is only running one machine out of west point! I heard a rumor the other day that they are looking at only taking wood 3 days a week and only operating on quotas.

Around here (western NC, upstate SC) hardwood stumpage averages $6 to 8/Ton (17-23+/cord).  Delivered prices are hovering around $28/Ton (81+ cord), but things are getting real tight real fast, and delivered rates can be expected to fall accordingly.

Thompsontimber, it sounds like your markets are closer to what I am dealing with throughout the peninsula and tidewater, Virginia. I know of alot of loggers that are struggling to stay afloat and a handful are cutting timber right now that was purchased back in December where their delivered price equals what they paid but no money is in the bill for hauling or fuel so they are losing money and we all know, you cant keep a business going when your losing money. I really hope these markets bounce back in june!

In eastern Ontario seasoned firewood is running about $100-$125 CDN for a face cord delivered, stacking extra. 3X that for a full/bush cord (4'x4'x8').  Generally all hardwood, maple, oak, etc. Although I often try to convince the 'urban greenies', who just burn for esthetics rather than heat, to use poplar or basswood for nice romantic fire, but don't get many takers.

Hardwood pulp---
 I just sold 64 loads (average 27.8 ton per load) of hardwood pulp at $15 per ton.  The last two loads were hauled out yesterday.  This was really poor timber in my opinion--- timber that was saved only because I couldn't get to it to push it down/pile/burn.   Hickory, sweet gum, post oak, white oak, red oak, river beech, hackberry----mostly 10-12 inches at the stump.
 However, the timber man I dealt with told me just today that the price had dropped by $2 to $3 per ton.  This is "stumpage".  Also, this logging outfit is currently picking all the tops and chipping them in place-- I do not get any pay out of this, but do like not having the mess left on the ground.  Looks like they will get 15 or so loads of chips--the chips, they say, are not useful for paper pulp, as there is no way to remove or separate the bark.   They say the chips are going for "hog fuel".  One of the local mills has a electric generation plant fueled by sawmill/planer wastes -- and supplemented by "hog fuel" chips.

Other recent quoted prices to me:  pine pulpwood-- $8. per ton.  Pine logs-- $25 to $30 per ton.   Harwood logs-- $30 to $35 per ton.  One bright spot--power poles -- $70 per ton.

Hardwood pulp-$13.50 a ton
pine pulp -$14.45 a ton
That is what the log yards will pay cut and delivered to them.
Brite spots are White oak stave logs -$65.00 a ton
ERC-$38.00 a ton
Walnut saw logs $900.00 a thousand but any good saw logs go to my mill so the log yard gets mostly pulp and the small cedar off of my logging jobs.

Yep, $3 - $4/ ton stumpage for landowners for hardwood pulp.  We've got different markets here, namely the NewPage mill at Luke Md (used to be WestVaco) with a hauling distance of 40 - 60 miles.
