Everyone that wants to stay warm in the winter helps with the splitting, cutting and stacking duties. I helped a guy about 10 years ago get rid of the wood from his downed trees. A 2 tree job turned into a 5 tree, 20 cords of wood job. I only took about 9 cords of the wood. M would lift my scalp if I had a harem of hotties splitting wood and stacking it, lol.

Bought a gas fired insert years ago. Screw cutting and splitting firewood. I hit the remote and whammo instant heat. No fuss no muss. If I want odor ill light a candle.
My living room is 13 ft. By 26 ft. with a twenty ft. High cathedral ceiling. It has two 6 ft. Glass doors with four trapezoid glass windows oks capable of making inefficient room quite toasty.

What’s a cord cost now? 500? 600 if you want it stacked? 700 if you want real seasoned firewood?

200 hundred to heat two houses all winter. lol

Hold the wedge M !!!
Powerline crew cutting locally?
Few $20s.
Used to.be a case of COLD beer, lol.
If I needwood, I just stop and ask.
You'd be surprised.

Help a neighbor with some trees.
Lots of options.

Have always cut my own, with a few exceptions. First year I moved into this house, I had no.wood here. Primary heat was a Hitzler wood/ coal unit.

Local sawmill DELIVERED 5 cords of 18" cut slab for $150. Had just bought couple thousand BF of wood from.them, so maybe gave me a deal? Been a few years...

As recently as 3 years ago, I stopped by a mill to ask about some 1x6 poplar. They had a mountain of poplar and red oak, cut to 20" or so. Literally had to where else to put it ( early July). Went in office to pay for boards, lady asked if I needed firewood? $50 a truck.load.
Nah, I'm good.
$30 a truck load. Be right back!

Went home, unloaded boards, went back and OVERLOADED 8' bed with all red oak. Cost me $30 and some $5 Little Caesars pizzas for son.

This post reads like a story out of the 1800s . I didn't know that many people still lived off the grid I remember hearing stories about how people couldn't afford oil and had to use wood to heat thier homes back in the depression ..We must be in a depression

The mill on 162 used to sell slabs. They burned pretty good.

Any tree company will give you the wood. We had to pay to dump it when used to work for one.

Yeah, I used to buy a lot of sawdust from them too, for stall bedding.

Now, bark, sawdust, everything gets blown into trailers and goes to.PA.

Pressed wood, scrapple, who knows?

A relative used to make and sell those little bundles of firewood. Had contracts with supermarket chains, campgrounds, etc.

Turned into a low margin, PIA endeavor, so he sold out to a....tree cutting company!
