    Found a wood/stump recycling place near by. Talked to the owner 20$ a truck load wood is bucked into stove size pieces.
    Drive up to the pile pick your pieces, pay and leave. All most seems like cheating. I seem to spend a lot of time trolling for free
    wood which I do enjoying doing, but one easy load a month would be nice.

    Sounds like a great deal! For $20 per load, I would get as much as I could. If you figure the work and gas you would have to put into cutting that much yourself, it's almost free.

    Last year I found a guy that logged his woods and charged me $30 per load to pick up what he cut into rounds. I ended up with 3 full cords of oak for a cheap price of $120. I should of got more.

    THis may give you some reference..

    About 2 months ago, we had an opportunity to buy some logs on the landing from a logger friend..Told me $45 for the pile it ended up being about a 1 and 1/3 cords. Mostly maple with a little cherry, elm, ash...It was about 45 minutes round trip with the big trailer but I figured I could not get it out of the woods for that price. Could put the truck 10 ft from the pile.

    Is it hardwood? cut to length is a great thing!! CONGRATS!!
