My husband, sons and myself used to cut and sell wood along with working our jobs to make a living. My husband would cut, the trees down, block them up and the boys and I would load it on the truck to haul to the house. I used a hydraulic stand up splitter to split and the boys would use 23 lb monster mauls to split by hand. I would stack that darned stuff, hated doing the end stacks, but then stacking the wood and I packed it tight, meaning stacking the wood together it did not have large holes between the wood pieces. We sold for 80 to 100 a cord and charged extra to stack it when delivered. whether it be put down a shoot for basement furnance or outside storage. We sold wood for many years before we gave it up, due to moving and yes, after moving about 14 years ago from Mo. to Washington state, to Louisiana, our wood splitter still runs and we use for splitting wood for our fireplace which I love to use to heat the living room and house with, hate the bedroom being hot. Some may think that 80 to 100 is alot but back then many were selling for 140 and 150 a cord. Now the wood runs that much. It is not easy work, back breaking, wears on the body after many years of it. Good luck with your wood purchases, there are honest sellers out there and then again, watch those that stack your wood with large holes in the stacks. And make sure you are getting good dry wood, not green or rotted. Connie
Since we moved we just couldn't find time to go out and get our own firewood for the year. So we paid $400 for cut and delivered dump truck of wood, it's dried and seasoned, nice woood. I think a cord is around $120 early fall, and by now it's up to $140 due to snow. The other year we got and shared a truck load (one of those trucks that haul wood to the sawmill) for $1000, that was a good deal, most would pay at least $1,300 for a truck, but for the average person, that should last four years.
