Well, after years of getting firewood at a huge discount (or free) I now have to join the ranks of burners that overpay for their fuel. In years past, I woould get enought firewood from logging sites in the woods around the area I live at. Lately, the logging sites have been "super clean" due to the chipping process used to harvest any "left-over" wood at these sites. Also, the logging yard that used to sell "cull" logs (logs that were too crooked, crotchity, gnarly, etc.) has decided not to sell any more. So I had to pay $700 for 10 cord this fall...instead of the usual $450. Next year, the price will probably be $900 as iI got a good deal this year.
