Found a local guy who is selling us 2 1/2 - 3 cords of unsplit wood (cut into approx 18" lengths) for $100. It was cut last fall, and my FIL (who knows a lot about this sort of thing) said it is nice and dry. It's a mix of hardwoods and poplar. The same local guy has about 10 cords (his estimate) of mixed hardwoods, also unsplit and cut into approx 18" lengths, that was cut last winter. He'll sell it to us for $90/cord, we haul, and cheaper if we buy a bunch. Is this a good deal, considering we'll have to rent a splitter? He's only four miles away, which sweetens the deal.
