700 seems like a lot but just think how much it costs to them to prep it there is a guy that does about the same thing he getting 500 a cord   told me after all expenses hes only making 90 a cord   he told me the biggest chunk goes to the court house for tickets  :D

Delivered.. Ill stack it if i hafta. 

I could probably do $150 a cord if i was willing to do this "rick" crap.

Ricks are basically any old 4x8 row of wood.. But then one guy wants 24" row and the other wants 17.  One guy tips you, one gripes.  I hate ricks. 

Next year ill be more established and will get $150 a cord or not bother.   Alternative income streams will be more developed by then. 

Chippin away at it.  Just glad i can afford to work this cheap.  Most people cant.

 I've got an "Italian" customer who has been after me to send bundled wood down to the island, has to be perfect, at the end of the day your not making much. A guy about 1hr of me does alot of bundled wood, you can sell alot of wood cheap when your labor force doesn't have a green card. I'm 230-240 a cord local right now, @ 150 a cord there's nothing left, doesn't cover the fuel to deliver it.

 The heat actually works pretty good, I'm 6'1" and about 220 and the cab is kind of tight for me, your not getting a 400lb guy in there. She will be getting 4-6 LED lights ASAP, load the trucks ahead for the next morning, all my neighbors say that slasher saw has quite the echo.
 We went with this used one because to fit it inside I've got to basically cut 1/4 of the machine off. Cut the hitch and move 1 leg and shorten the livedeck length wise, I want to get the room and livedeck pad poured 100% in concrete so it's going to be a summer project.

Whats the retail price on bundles up there?   I just started experimenting with them here yesterday.  5 gallon bucket worth.

Im getting 180 to 200 a cord depending on how far delivery is.    @Barge I graduated SUNY Cobleskill and now live a bit west of you.   Got some family in that area.   

Anyhow for me I am trying to get customers that will take green wood the season before rightout of the field.   Saves me stockpiling then handling another time.   I will stay small enough firewood is fun for me and just a side revenue stream.

Im fairly stunned by it, but people in middle tn will buy completely green firewood to burn that winter.  Many prefer it, seriously.  Im out of seasoned and selling wood right off the splitter, first thing i say when they call.    Up north id be getting sued.

Just started mixing in bone dry hickory slab chunk from a mill to help my conscience.  Atleast that was they have something to light easy and help dry the other pieces.

LOL I hear that to.  I know several people that prefer green wood, "Cause it burns longer."

Nevermind that you have to burn more of it to get the same heat and clean the chimney more often...  ::)

Well, i will admit there are cases where a little wet aint so bad.  A lot of folks live in singlewides and uninsulated shacks.  And we dont really have a "winter" by northern standards.  Last year the ground was only frozen 4" deep for maybe a week.  Itll be cold at night and sometimes almost hot in the daylight if its sunny.  So the need for max BTU is rare, but its a pain to either start several fires a day.. Or have to keep feeding in tiny amounts of wood to not cook yourself out.   But with no insulation, 80* will turn into 50* real quick so you still want the stove on a bit.

The people that like wet wood are the ones that want to pack the stove and just let it simmer.  I know a guy with a dry pile and a wet one to control what temp he wants.  I mean sitting in the rain wet.  Chimney is just a scrap of rusty tin pipe out the wall. 

The simple life.

we never burnt season/dry wood ever when I was growing up   and never had issues with chimney plugging up or getting enough heat

Sounds like it the stove could use a new door seal...   :)

Green wood on a windy day plugs up my raincap.   >:(  Hedge is fine anytime, but Elm has to be well dried and kept dry.  Even standing dead oak, we try to let it dry a week or two.   ;)

Somewhere I've seen a meme about the "Colby college starter set" which had an ag sweatshirt, a can of Copenhagen, boots and a truck. 😂 I'm in the southern end of the county in Gilboa.

307.6 on the dial as of tonight. It's one thing to watch one at the show, yeah ok yeah yeah, sit in the cab and slam 8-12cord thru it, that thing doesn't care. Never seen a splitter with so much force. That splitter chamber is solid and the main bar behind is solid but I can see down the road something is going to fatigue.
