Here where I am, about 11,450 rubles ($150) for cord for unsplit Douglas fir or lodgepole pine (we have virtually no hardwood available). I enjoy getting my own, so it's probably about $500/cord counting vehicle gas, saw gas/oil, amortization of saw, truck, time to fell, buck, split, stack, etc. laugh

Jack, always like how you stack wood. I love a shed looking like that too.

Looks like some blued rounds you have there ...I like the look of blued pine. Furniture, cabinets, ceilings ...

I would like to know where I can get dry, split hardwood for the price UpstateNY quoted. In my area it goes for $ 300 for a full cord (4 x 4 x 8)

Youre right, I did miscalculate. I thought you said 7000 rubles for one cube, not four.

A small percentage of the 5 cords we put up annually, is for the banya (which gets fired up at least once a week throughout the 7 months of winter). This image is for you Kosoi!

Obviously, wheels, white17. Jeesh! I figure you're about due down here to come build me another house over in He11s Canyon close to my catfish hole, and I can tow the banya across-state.

Jack wood sheds that look that good are illegal in Minnesota.

Besides, what kid would fear being taken out to the woodshed if they looked like that??

Osky - The photo is a bit deceiving. Behind the first row of wood, I've set up a home-built electric chair. No more wooden paddles across the hind end for the miscreants around here. When it's attitude adjustment time around here, it's serious! crazy

I usually cut a couple of cords a year and sell. Usually oak and ash. I get 100 dollars a cord, pretty reasonable. I just don't want to sit on it to long.

a cord of hardwood is about $250 delv'd within a short rad. usually something like 15-20 miles.
I have had a glut of firewood since we had a tornado go thru our woods.
I have tried selling firewood and I do sell small amounts but the issue is I don't delv.
I sell well season and dried hardwood, mostly hickory for $100/cord. You have to come pick it up. I'll help load.
I have 2 customers that regular have been buying from me. Thats it.

My glut is pretty much gone. I make all the firewood I need for myself and might just sell a little bit here and there to one of the lake home owners. Thats it.

So my point is the price/cord is one thing, another is it delv'd or not? How much to have it del'vd.?

We have plentiful Oak here, but have a glut of Ash the last few years. The Ash borer beetle killed every Ash in about 5 acres of wetland I have. Ash is good firewood, easy to process and split, but not the btu's of Red Oak. Hickory is rare here but some of the best firewood.

My family owns a sawmill. Been selling firewood in some capacity for 25+ years. We sell it strictly by the facecord. We have about 50 racks built 4x8 and roughly 18 deep. Bring a rack over to the splitter with the skid steer. Fill the rack and put it out to the road with the skid steer. It is 65$/facecord. Ive heard about full cords my whole life but weve never measured that way. You pick up for $65/facecord. Its all on the honor system. Put your cash in the box before you load it. If you pay more or have something to barter with, delivery could be available but we try to get away from that because its not worth it. Firewood is a major part of my life and from the age of 12, some of my best memories have been doing firewood with my gramps.
