    Default Log load firewood

    What is the going rate for a log truck of firewood? I talked to 2 different loggers today. One said $1600 for a truckoad (12 cord) and the other told me somewhere between $1200 and $1400. With heating oil being under $2/gallon, I would have thought firewood prices would have dropped some.

    I don't know about VT but here in NY $600 for a 18 cord load. I just let four loads go down the road for the use of a skidder and a man to run it. Just to pull out two loads for me. Other wise it would have payed About $100 per load, they pull it out. Now that was Soft maple tops. But I heat my house with a outside wood boiler on Soft maple. If it's dry it burn good.

    Does VT have a 50 mile rule. Here in NY you can't transport fire wood more then 50 miles. Spread of Ash bore is the reason for that. Maybe part of the reason if your in a area were there is a lot of demand for fire wood. But to me that is just way to much to pay!!! You would be better off on oil at that price!!! For that kind of money it better be cut, split, delivered, wasahed and stacked!!!!!!!!

    Those prices sound more realistic, I think that I'll keeping looking because I can get wood that is split and delivered for $150/cord, wouldn't make a lot of sense to pay $133 and then have to do all the work

    Default Fire wood

    I just today paid $20.00 for 1 1/2 cord of slab wood. All hardwood, came in 8-12' sections and i cut it as I took it off the truck. My son and I did this in just over 2 hours. The guy has about 8-10 more bundles left from wood he did this spring and summer. Not much to split but I will be doing this in the shack as I need to. This is my first year with wood so I think I got a good deal.
