Cost Of A Cord Of Wood

Cost Of A Cord Of Wood

PostBy: CoalHeat On: Sat Oct 27, 2007 9:15 pm

I just called my "wood guy" and ordered 2 cords for my Fisher insert. The price is the same as last year, $175.00 per cord.
Just wondering what others are paying for delivered wood, cut and split.

I got a price from a local wood dealer for a girl in the office. $130 for a half and $250 for a cord delivered. That is a good price for a cord around here in CT.

Before last winter the going rate around here was $125 or so, Everyone raised their prices last fall. At these prices 6 to 8 cords a year can get too pricy. That was one of the reasons I switched my main stove to coal.

At $250 for a cord....I think I would give up on wood.

Around here you can, obviously resulting in more wood per cord and the higher pricing.

I've bought wood from so many different guys over the years. I always ask them if it's seasoned, and they always say "yes". Then it goes into the stove and sits there and sizzles and the fire starts to go out.

The best firewood I ever had was the wood I cut myself.

If they are delivering it in a Pick up truck there is no way it is a full cord
of wood 4x4x8 split will not fit in a standard Pick up unless it has 4x8
Playwood on the sides and a 4x4 piece on the back around here you will
pay 125 to 150 and it will be a dump truck most people cut there own the

few that burn wood you know the ones that say wood is cleaner and
easier and cheaper then coal not that there is anything wrong in burning
wood but when you live in the Hart of ANTHRCITE country it does not
make any sense to me Plus how is it easier when you have to go out in

the woods fall the tree cut it up split it load the truck or trailer come home
unload the wood on to the rack outside then go back outside bring it in to
burn in the stove you just handled that same piece of wood 6 times Now

with coal if you get it yourself it is loaded in you truck or trailer for you come
home shovel it into the bin then you bring it in to burn in the stove or
stoker so now you only handled it twice so how is wood easier plus you
have all of the bark and dirt all over the place and coal is cheaper if you
get it youself So I guess what I am trying to say is burn coal :)

Western Ny has a different way of measuring wood. $45-$55 per "cord" which could be 4'x8'x ? sometimes 12" wide, sometimes 16" wide, sometimes between 8-20"

My Hillbilly wood guy just dropped of the first of my 2 cords at $175 ea. His even-more Red-Man chewin' Hillbilly friend was amazed at the 351 V-6 in my '68 GMC and also said he just got a couple of tons of nut coal from someone for free.

Coal is definitely cheaper the wood, unless you cut it yourself and even then, figuring the cost of all the work, maybe not.
