Winter wood
[Return to Topics]

Well now is the time to order our wood for winter. We order our wood from a tree service for $200 a semi load. It comes in giant logs that they can't use for one reason or another. I went in to order today and they said that they don't do it anymore. Seems that too many people were ordering the wood and they saw a perfect opportunity to cut it up themselves and sell it. They made a whole new division at the tree service place, strictly firewood, since so many people are burning wood now.
Looks like I'll have to find a new source. Darn it! I have about 5-6 cords left over from last year, but I still want to find a good source.

It's a shame that all the trees that have been cut up and are all along the roads here since the hurricanes came through that more folks aren't grabbing it up for firewood. Some folks here have fireplaces but I reckon they haven't even thought about it since our winters are so mild. All that wood will be ground into mulch and it could have been used to keep folks warm. What a waste of good wood. Lots and lots of oak mostly but other kinds of wood too.

200 a load thats pretty cheap, a loggin truck load up here goes anywhere from 12 to 1500, i belive it is now, depending what type of wood.cost you a hundred for a pickup load cut split and delivered if not more.
