We supply a couple of wholesalers in the Philadelphia area.  They're full up.  We were taking about a 3-4 trailerloads a week since spring.  So, we're just letting the polewood mount up until they start taking again.  We don't do any retail or local wood.  Strictly to wholesalers.  Less headache and hassles.
Never under estimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

We do from 500 to 800 cord a year.  Sounds like a lot of swinging to me.  Lol
  I could heat my house for 100 years with that much wood. I would be pressed for space to put it.

I have processing since April, I just did 30 chords last weekend. It's starting to drop into the 40's at night so people are really getting the itch to get wood cut.

As is often the case the phone begins to ring about this time of year with people looking for dry wood for the winter.  Very few people in this area have any dry wood for sale.  You would think people would learn to buy early but often it is the same people calling year after year after the kids go back to school and nights begin to cool down. 

I only do cut and split firewood on the side when time allows but the opportunity to do extra is always there.  The average price here for delivered cut and split seems to be in the $250/cord (128 ft3).

Logging is very big here in Northern Michigan, so most people who burn firewood just call one of many logging companies and just order a truck of wood. It comes in 100" to 110" logs and they usually spend all summer cutting and splitting. The loggers are getting $1000 a truck load. Truck load = 10 to 12 chords
