    Hi all. I have 1 four-year-old son as well as a pregnant wife, and I'm currently burning GREEN wood, trying to heat my house. I know the dangers and problems with this all too well. Money and time were really tight, and I ended up having to buy wood in November. Big mistake, I know. I'm wondering if there are any kind souls with decent wood supplies in eastern CT or in RI willing to trade some dry seasoned wood for some cut split green wood along with some cold hard cash. If anyone is interested in this trade, shoot me a PM and let's talk.

    Do you have some objection to just buying a cord outright?
    I have two people I've used in eastern CT that are very good. Bill Dexter in Danilson @ 860-680-1278 and Masacaros in Colchester @ 860-537-0862

    I bought two cords from each of them.

    @Greg: My only objection to buying outright is I've never actually gotten well seasoned wood this late in the season, even after the dealers and people reviewing them have specifically mentioned that their wood is dry while others are not.


    @wet1, I'm in Ledyard, and it's mostly oak.
