    Someone in Boxford, Mass., a town nearby to me, has what he says amounts to three cords of mostly green hickory logs. He wants $300 for it. I'd love to get it, but I don't have the equipment to move it:

    I'm going to at least visit the guy and look over his wood. He told me the logs were about 8 feet or so. That's way too heavy for me to lift and haul away. But it may be worthwhile cutting them shorter and renting a truck for a day.

    Hell if I were closer, I would have been there before the trees hit the ground! $100 a cord for hickory? I wouldnt have cared if it was my anniversary or my kids birthday... i would be there hauling it home.

    There's no Hickory around here but for $100 I get wood delivered to me and unloaded.

    I agree that I can buy cords of hardwood logs for 100 delivered. I would not go for that one. I am not sure what the firewood situation is like there in Massachusetts but we are into spring so wood will get plentiful and cheaper for a short while.
