    It would almost be worth offering him less cash just to see if he would burn it in his yard and dance around it in his speedo. :)

    I'd offer him more cash to do that, as long as I could put it on youtube

    They cut down a few 6" trees and want YOU to pay THEM for it??? And I'm sorry, but it takes more than "a few" 6" trees to make a cord.

    My wife is doing a triathlon up that way this weekend. Maybe I'll take the trailer and a chainsaw so that I have something to do.

    If you're really bored, you could swing by our place and toss a few rounds on the lawn and I'll toss you a few beers. :lol:

    Seriously though. Best of luck to your wife. And here's to hoping the weather holds out.

    Thanks, and don't worry about me, I drink beer in all weather. Especially, some of those fine VT products.

    Lets see, 700/128 = 5.5 cords

    BTUs of pine = 14 mill per cord
    BTUs of maple = 24 mill per cord

    So 5.5 cords of pine = 3.2 cords of maple on a BTU basis

    So actually, if it's really 700 cu feet, $400 isn't terrible, but you have to move it. AND, we all know that pine will turn your stove pink and your chimney will move to Mongolia.

    $176/cord, only 7 cords of which could be dry, 10 cords just in rounds, and you need to pickup. Pass.

    Love them super-duty mini trucks... Never figure out how to get a whole cord in my 3/4 ton long bed truck, but he gets one in a Mazda - with room to spare. Must be because a cord of pine is so much smaller than a cord of real wood.
