    A few miles makes a big differnece on price in MA. I spent some time cruising craigslis and making calls.

    • Around me (metrowest between 128/I-95 and I-495) the going prices are 250-350 per cord for "seasoned" (not) hardwood CSS delivered and dumped. Few ads for green.
    • If you look in Boston and the directly adjacent towns the prices skyrocked to 400+ and you see a lot of dealers advertizing half quarter and half cords at crazy number like 300. (selling to the apartment dwellers)
    • Go outside I-495 and search Worcester county the prices drop into the mid 200s for seasoned and I see the occasional 150-200 for green and some hundred buck cords of pine. Problem is a lot of these ads are in the Asian beetle quarantine zone.
    Best deals are on log loads (as low as $75/cord), but I dont have space to take an 8 cord grapple.

    80ft red oak should be almost 2 cords of wood depending on the diameter no?
