I've now got access to 3 decent wood guys.
PM me for info.

Shoot, if you'd just move you could have access to many more wood guys.
If I ever move, it's to Oregon to be near Hytyme
I hear a chain saw
Oregon would not be too bad. For sure better than NY in my book.
Be nice BS.
Bumping this up, it's 6 weeks later, and the acorns are falling already !
80 % of the leaves have fallen off my Birch trees (insert sad smiley thanx to iPad)
Is this a trick? Just to see who'll bite?
Move to LI, East end, and give it a whirl.
Hey Dix, is there a lot of available firewood on LI? Do you burn all local wood? I've only been their a couple of times.
There is alot, most of it is gonna be sopping wet.
I lucked into guys who have decent firewood, hell one of them is bringing me some nice pallets (and yes, hes married !!)
I'm working on really good into firewood for next year (2013 -2014). And it's because of these guys. Decent prices, decent firewood.
Just trying to make a win/win for everyone.
Are they only selling split firewood or are they willing to give away log length so I can process it?
Just split, Mike.
One gets from builders who clear land, and don't want to pay the wood dumping fees, another his son has a tree business, so he gets it pretty much for free, and the 3rd scrounges all of his.
Decent prices though from all of them.
That sounds a lot like me. I get log length from guys who clear land and have tree service companies who don't process firewood and don't mind dumping it for free( I help them and they help me). I was just looking to expand my contact list. Just for the heck of it what are they getting for a cord? Sometimes I wonder if it's cheaper for me to just buy it. I mean my time is worth something.
Careful there. There is lots of NYS that is not NYC.
You are right Steve. NY and MI have something in common. Speak of NY and folks think about the city. Speak of MI and folks think Detroit.
...and I think you know that the cities are only a small part of each state.
Cool Dixie. Something finally going your way.
I think you'd both be surprised at how rural it is here on the east end of the Island. I'll try & get some pics.
Stocking up is the plan.... luckily I have the museum job to help with that. Runs 'til the weekend before Christmas, too
I've been out there a few times. I know what its like.
Why wont you put the price up? You dont have to give thier name or # but just the prices. I would think since your basically advertising for them you would want to put the price up if not thier name?
Price is not my business. Newbies here might need firewood, and these guys are decent. I'll hook them up, and after that it's every man or woman for themselves.
I don't make a dime off of this. Just trying to help, as I have stated many, many times before through the years on this forum.
fisrt off the problem with the internet is that if you dont use smilies you dont know a persons emotion. Im sorry if i sounded like i was attacking you, im not. I just ask what i feel and say things most shy away from, thats my personality. I read this thread interested in what you guys pay for wood up there. I spen 5 mins reading this and dont even see a price so i felt cheated . I seriously am curious. I cut my own wood so for $100 cord i dont think i would buy wood at my age.
The whole point is price?
Im not asking you to give your super secret negotiated price, but what is the price they first tell you when you call, whats their add price? Or help out someone like you said, tell us your price then if a person really wants wood they can say well i know this person who bought from you last month got it fro $x in East long island or something. Even if they dont want to match the price for that person, all they have to say was well that was last months or last weeks price, i had to go up for ...... reason.
I'm guessing that cords are advertised for around $250 out that way based on what I see on New York City (and surrounding areas) Craig's List.
