    Hi All,

    Just returned from ordering my wood for next winter. 2 full cords of apple/maple, a 60/40 mix, all ecologically culled from a working orchard/sugar bush.
    I have used this same supplier for 3 years now and his wood is well seasoned and his measurements are fair. His prices have not risen in that time, and they are not going up this year.
    It will cost $420 Canadian, about $350 in your money, maybe a bit less.

    I shall attach a photo for curiosity's sake.

    Dang! I agree about the fair measurement. That is definitely a full two cords and $350 well spent! ;)

    I am going to take a wild guess and say she is standing beside the supplier's pile. Out of which her wood will be delivered.

    Yes, you are right, Brother Bart. that is the stack that our wood will come from. All around are apple trees which are about ready to pop with their blooms, just waiting on a little rain.

    Oh that is funny. I nearly fell over when I saw the picture of 2 cords, I was thinking those 2 cords would last me years! My stomach is hurting, I just was not expecting that. Donna, you're the best. I needed that touch of humor so bad.

    Here is part of the apple in the stack.
    When we order, we specify what kind of wood we want.
    He is very good about sorting it.
    If you order 6 cords of apple, that is exactly and only what you get.
    It burns like coal.

    That big pile of wood is super dreamy! Until this year when I started burning a stove I never looked at wood with such love. Now, everywhere I go I see potential firewood in fallen trees. It is exciting.
