I was being Sarcastic. What some people charge for firewood is also determined by what typical wages are for the area. Where I live, a guy capable of cutting,splitting,lifting firewood can go out and get a job for at least $18 an hour no problem. I would also assume that in Alasaka there are not too many guys capable of heavy, physical work,working for $7.00 an hour.It always amazes me that the people who like to bragg "I work hard for my money" expect others to work for peanuts! The firewood thing is not my sole income,I could not make a living at it. My wife's uncle is one of these " Cordwood should be delivered and stacked for no more than a hundred bucks" types. I told him to deliver and stack a cord of wood to my house and I would pay Double........$200. He said I'm not doing that kind of work for $200. But he expects somebody else too!! The people purchasing wood from me like to have a fire once or twice a week and want wood that is going to burn well.They don't mind paying top prices for top product.They are most definitely not heating with purchased firewood in order to offset heating costs. In my area,nobody can offset heating costs by having wood in any form delivered to their homes.It's that simple.In order to save money,the work must be done by the burner.That means cutting down their own trees and hauling the wood with their own equipment.
