Have had good and not so good wood deliverys over the last 6 years. First 3 years from the same guy. Young lad, local, mostly maple, some beech, hardly any ash. Unfortunately he died in a car accident. Next was another local guy. Too much ash for my liking. Last year was a guy about 35 minutes away. Wood was great, mostly maple but the splits ranged from 12-24" and when stacked the 2 cord were short over a 1/3 of a cord. Over $100 worth of not delivered wood. Called and left a message letting him know that it was short and that it was probably just an error in how many bucket loads were in the trailer. Left it way open as an honest mistake giving him the opprotunity to make it right and save face. No response. Obviously no recourse on a cash sale. This year I found another guy about 35 min away. Claims to cut, split and hand stack 1 year in advance. A little more expensive at $325 a cord but may be worth it in the long run. My wife just sent me this picture. I guess it arrived. Will have to see how it stacks out this weekend.
