i burned wood for about 8 or 9 years. i was clearing out the property little buy little. mostly hard and soft maples , with some cherry trees. i sold the big trees for $ and cut up the 12" and under stuff for the wood burner. i never split one pc of wood. i could get a 10 to 12 hour burn. i would put a big pc in and couple small ones on the side when i reloaded. i always felt that spliting just made it burn faster. it burns hotter , but alot faster.

$175-$190 a cord in northern Maine. Depends who you get it from. Pellets are now at $289 a ton. :shock: Just heard on the news yesterday that someone had 2 ton of pellets stolen. He had it delivered and was going to store them in his basement the next morning. People are going crazy.

^ Someone stole a trailer full of steel here this weekend. A guy at work had a 1000-1500 dollar trailer loaded up with steel to recycle for $$.. woke up in the morning and someone went behind his house, cut the lock, stole it.

The first picture is the wood I have hauled across the state.

I paid $550 for a tri-axle load of logs this year. I was informed the price will go up next year which doesn't supprise me. Typical tri-axle load prices are $650 to $700 around this area now. Since I have been a long time customer, I get a break. I get approx. 22 face cords out of a load at 16" wide.

Cut and split wood is going for about $55.00 a face cord (16" width) right now.

I expect a shortage and prices to spike as soon as the weather turns cold. A lot of people are turning to wood this year due to oil and gas costs. Many people don't plan ahead and are going to be disapointed when they want wood. I ordered my logs last April and did not get them until September. Wood lot production is down due to lower demand for hardwood building materials.

I don't know about NEPA, but the rumor in southern CT is $300 or more this winter.

I have burned 10 cord a year, for past 10 years. Before that, I burned 6 cord a year for 18 years. Never had to pay a cent for the wood, but had to buy the chainsaws, fuel mix, splitters, and might want to throw the cost of a tractor or two, in there.
Its true what they say; Nothing is free.
Here is my stockpile for '09-'10 winter...

That would make nice campfire, my brother used to have his own tree service. We'd take a load of logs to my Uncles place on the river every couple of months.

No splitting, just throw the whole damn log on. :P Usually about 5 or 6 at a time.

We had all kinds of furniture too made after this picture was taken. Damn river flooded and floated it all away.

I see on the news they are suggesting...and thinking of making it law but don't know how to enforce it... do not bring your own firewood on vacation with you. There's an issue with bring in nasty bugs, simple as that. Appearantly that's one way beetles get to a new location. They are in the tree when it's cut, get taken to a new place and then set up shop destroying native trees. So, keep it in mind when you're headed out camping this year. Leave your wood at home, you'll find some where ever you go.

Its the Emerald ash borer that is causing all of the destruction. And the reason for the laws.
