Hope the sun keeps shining up north. We had a major storm here in October 2011 that put alot of wood on the ground. All of a sudden every lanscaper and his brother were in the firewood business! A lot of homeowners had their own stock piles too. Wood went from $225, pushing $250 a cord down to $175 a cord. Not into big government, but I need a license to cut logs, a license to trim trees, maybe there should be a license/permit to sell firewood commercially... Let's let the bakers do the baking and hopefully some day firewood producers can make just a little of the profits that the oil companies make  :)
I've met Vets who have lived but still lost their lives... Thank a Vet

Family man and loving it :)

I've never really seen those kinds of swings because of a storm. I guess it's because we have pulp markets. There are only a handful of processor guys and anyone with a woodlot cuts their own anyway. Around here we just get micro bursts, so the amount of wood torn up in a storm is small potatoes. If it's softwood blow downs, there is no firewood market for that to amount to much. Camp grounds seem to have fir or spruce kindling in dry shelters, something for lots of smoke, sparks and crackling.
Move'n on.
