Just watching an episode of "Yukon men" on TV, they had one guy and his son harvesting fire wood from the river. When he was done he had to build a raft to get it back home. The guy stated he had about 6 cords of wood and it was worth about $2,500. This seemed really high to me, I know the cost varies by region, but $400 plus a cord in Alaska? Also is wood harvested from the river different than standing lumber? Drying time shorter I wood think, but it would still take some time for the logs to dry after being in the river who knows how long.
