    You guys are so lucky with your free wood. I got this load put on trailer with a trackhoe for 100.00 and could have loaded all I could put on! As it was, it was heavy. I have been known to break stuff! This was the second load, first was maple, really heavy!!! Drive was 60 miles round trip. Tim

    I would not burn wood if i had to buy it...coal is a better alternative where Ilive. I just have so much around my house though so I almost have to burn it! How much does a cord that is cut and split go for in your area? If I wanted...I could get a cord for $150 pretty easy here in PA.

    In my opinion, that's a SWEET load for a C-note;).... I live out here where wood is tough to harvest..... I would give $100 bucks very easy for what you got!:cool:

    that load needs to go to a sawyer! esp the one on the second tier closest to the camera.... I don't pay anything more than saw/splitter gas and diesel for the JD1050 for my wood... I always keep an eye out for saw logs.. I've got 3 NICE 8' hickory saw logs out of the fieldline I am working right now.... it will (eventually) end up being the flooring in my dining room....

    I would take that load for a hundred and I can get free wood, but... thats easy wood to obtain. Sometimes its tough scrounging or
    pulling wood out of the woods. That nice load comes right to your house.:)

    if it's hard maple that's great /

    if it's not still ok just not that great & doesn't really get better with more yrs of seasoning on it

    but that looks like fresh so 1-2yrs after split

    I live in woods & still buy wood

    so don't feel bad for buying wood:p

    I got 10+ cord of soft Maple for "FREE" on 3 yr it was campfire wood

    Hardest work of my life 5' + trunk

    Nice looking load there Tim and for around here that is a really good price. Last summer my neighbor's son sold about 8 cords of oak (cut/split/delivered) for no less than $325 per cord :eek: Great college money to say the least.

    Looks like a good deal to me. I have a local tree cutting company that will bring me a load just slightly bigger than that for $100, delivered. When ever they are cutting in the area.

    I agree about the lucky Tim but out east, there is so much that just rots that it isn't funny. If I didn't have our own woodlot to cut on, I could still cut all the wood I need and could still probably haul it all home with the atv because I wouldn't have to go very far. I was even offered this winter to cut all the white oak I needed; no cost. But I had plenty enough to do on our own place so that is where we cut.

    No doubt in your area that would also be a really good buy. I see you put a few in the truck too. I say a good job well done at a decent price.

    I don't see a thing wrong with that for 100.
