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.

    • Thanks to Ufatz, I didn't have to make a wasted trip to my mailbox today...
    • YES, they DO shut down if not enough oxygen. Been dealing with that one for almost 15  years of teaching this. They DO NOT have a CO shutoff, that's what I'm trying to hammer into peoples heads. That's what all thermocouples do, shut the gas valve.  A thermocouple is a safety device for some gas appliances. One end of the thermocouple is heated by a pilot flame, and the other end is connected to a gas valve. As long as the pilot light stays lit, the thermocouple holds the gas valve open and lets gas flow to the main burner of the appliance. The sensor on the end of the thermocouple is heated by the flame of the pilot light. The heat generated is converted into micro volts of electricity. This Electricity is enough to open a tiny magnet in the gas valve, and allow the gas to flow. If the pilot light was to blow out, then the sensor on the Thermocouple cools, and then closes the gas valve to the burner. This ensures that when the pilot flame goes out, Gas cannot escape from the pilot. It is automatically shut down.  That's how it works....if there isn't enough O to support the pilot, you might as well hang it up. They've been petitioned to remove their "low oxygen shut off" from their labeling. Best they did was re-word it. 
    • I believe the v-fronts help, but there is always the vacuum on the flat back-end.  I have had both am always surprised by what I'd call the rear drag.
    • Do buddy heaters even have a low oxygen / CO shut off?  My understanding is they have a thermocouple that kills the gas flow if it's not lit, but it will burn as long as there is a pilot light and enough O2 for combustion, which is probably less O2 than what it would take to make you feel like dump.  And even if O2 levels are high, CO can still be off the chart.   Do people get a lot of alarms going off?  Seems like there is going to be CO in my porty just from the buddy heater going even if the conc is well below a danger level.  I figured those things were calibrated for use in places like your house which should be right at about 0ppm, unless it's right next to the furnace.   In a related story, my MIL was house sitting for a friend when the CO detector went off.  She opened some windows and went outside but started getting a headache, naseous, light headed, weak, dizzy, all sorts of symptoms.  Called 911.  Fire department rolled out, ambulance sent.... And the detector was alarming because the battery was almost dead.  CO levels were at 0ppm.    
    • I'll wait patiently on memorial day, veteran's day, the 4th of July, 9/11, Xmas, new years, labor day, or any of the other federally recognized holidays for you to throw up another post with no point.
    • Thinking about building a new Fish House.   Does a "V" Front really make that big of a difference in towing?   Campers aren't "V" front so just wondering. I think I could utilize space a lot better with a regular square front.
    • Did you ever weigh the house?
    • Thanks for the reminder.  The trash goes to the road tonight for tomorrow's pick up.  I'll drag it down the driveway on my way to the lake.    
    • Had to bring the wife back last night anyway but a 3 day run woulda been nice.  I got to play with and feed our granddaughter, get ice gear thawed out and recharge batteries, making lunch and gonna head out for the evening bite.   I have a dream!
    • Thanks Rebelss. You just can't emphasize the importance of a C/O alarm especially with the new fish  houses being built so tight. My service man just ran into a B/O furnace on a no heat after hours call.  Home owner was very lucky and of course no alarm.
