Fire Wood Prices??

14 posts in this topic

Just curious what all you wood burners are paying (providing some of you buy your wood) in the southern part of the state per cord of firewood this season? I was wondering what the price difference was between the two ends of the state and the price per cord increase in relation to L.p., fuel oil etc.

$80/cord over here (NE) for Birch and/or Maple.

What are you paying in the NW?

Compared to the $3.70/gal for fuel oil I just paid it seems like a bargin.

Looking at anywhere from $65- $100 depending on what you get. Higher end at least for seasoned Oak lower end for Poplar.

I just paid $85 per logger's cord (eight foot lengths stacked four feet high and four feet wide) for birch and $90 for maple up here in Ely. The five logger's cords I bought so far total four full cords when cut, split and stacked.

I have five more coming, for a cut/stacked/split total of eight, and we're expecting to save $1,500 this winter by burning wood over burning propane in our high-efficiency furnace.

Look on the list that Craig has on the .com.

He's got a fair amount of people trying to get rid of their wood.

I personally am much much higher than the prices listed already.

I paid $75 for a full cord of red oak (bought a truck load, 10 cords) here in NW Wis. I was lucky to get it for that because I've heard of it going for as high as $90.

Is that logs? Or already split?

i recently had loggers in at my property and there is a ton of good wood on the ground.so if any one wants wood i can cut it up into 6ft lengths and haul it back to my house for a small fee witch would help me offset my fuel bill from going noth every weekend.

Full cord = 8 foot length, 4 feet high by 4 feet wide.

Just curious, do you cut and split your own or do you buy from a wholesaler and re-sell?

We cut most of it ourselves, but we're always looking for people that want to get rid of wood at a price that will work too.

    •   Hopefully the trend towards "the other white meat" will bring down the cost of beef brisket
    •   No, weekends was when the wife could get you outside to do some yard work!
    •   They are now making a cloth made out of trees and it seems like the plant is doing just fine. I have not noticed the "smell" since the conversion. Always made me wonder why the smell was the worst on weekends. Kinda thought that maybe the EPA did not work weekends 
    • We are heading back up to Isle Royale for the 4th holiday weekend ,,, Hope to have another video when we get back 
    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting.
