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.

    • Good luck walleye, sorry about the miss, but we all know what a tough road archery hunting can be.   My good friend Dave and I headed to Wisconsin Wednesday afternoon.  We have two tags each. We hunted hard for most of 5 days while enduring some of the worst weather we ever we had to deal with. 40 degrees ain't bad, and a little rain ain't bad, but a hard rain at 40 degrees just plain sucks. Add in some wind and it was pretty miserable.   Wednesday we got to our hunting spot mid afternoon and set up. We weren't intent on spending the evening with plans to scout a bit and get the permission we needed for another farm.  We actually heard a couple gobbles and they seemed to be coming closer, then the rain started.  Do we wait till it quits, or do we leave before it gets worse? Dave said lets get out while we can. Sure enough, as soon as we got out of the blind there was a big tom looking at us.  Game over.  Oh well.   Next morning we were back at this same spot. Nothing going except a lone hen way out, not even a gobble...till 10:00. This bird would gobble and come closer, then gobble as he went farther away. Over and over again.  Finally he showed himself at the end of the field 80 yds out.  He'd gobble then head back into the woods to gobble some more.  In and out like that for what seemed forever. Finally he came back out again and ever so slowly headed our way. Closer and closer, then - "there's another one!"  Another big tom came to see what all the noise was about.  The first one was inching closer and closer, right to the edge of my shooting range. He stopped and lifted his head and turned around. I couldn't wait to see if he'd come closer, a few steps would put him out of range.  My trusty old 870 barked and he was down.  Sweet!  I looked at the clock, it was 11:30. We'd been working this bird for an hour and a half! I later paced it off at 45 yds.  Haven't shot very many beyond that.   The other bird didn't even flinch, he was coming to see why his bud wasn't getting up. Closer and closer till Dave couldn't wait anymore.  He shot. The bird started running, then took flight.  He shot again and that bird was in the woods, never to be seen again.   Two missed opportunities on our first two sits.   Though we hunted hard the next few days and saw some birds, we never had another chance.  Tough, tough hunting.   My bird tipped the scales at just under 24 1/2 lbs. Spurs both right at 1" and pretty sharp, beard just over 10". Probably a 3 year old.

    • Lost 40 a few years back. Forget diets, you need an entire lifestyle change. Think of food as either slowly killing you or helping you live longer and healthier. Just because someone is skinny does not mean they are healthy. Personally I stick to a lot of fruits, veggies and wild game, very little carbs, dairy, beef or pork. Not that I don't love ribs, steak & the like but it's not a regular meal. After a while you don't really miss the bad stuff because you feel so much better.   Let me guess, you sell diet supplements in on of those pyramid scheme multi level marketer deals.
    • Old newspapers and grass clippings. The problem with wood mulch is it will still be there in the fall when you want to till the garden.
    •   Best thing I've seen is just old newspapers.      
    • I wanna mulch around my tomatos and peppers this year to keep the dirt from splashing all over them. Was wondering if its bad for them. Was gonna use cedar but was hoping for some advice.
    • Have both a Habanero and a Ghost Pepper in this years garden.   
    • I may have to pick some up I never had time to start my seeds indoors this year
    •   Yes, Fleet is having a sale in their garden center. Bought two of each should be fun to see how they grown.
    • These started plants?   I have some reaper powder I use on my eggs and chicken... yumm yummm
