There's an older couple who lives up the road from me. Around Thanksgiving they were looking for a pickup load of firewood. Since my wood stack is visible from space (at that time about 18-20 cord) they asked if I was willing to sell some. I really didn't want to, but since they are good neighbors I figured I'd do them a solid and part with some of my hard-earned firewood. The going rate around is is $50 for a "pickup load" delivered. I said I'd fill up my 4x8 trailer with as much as I could fit and stack it for $50. Deal. The wood I delivered was mostly white oak, with some black oak mixed in, that I cut/split/stacked right around Thanksgiving of 2010. It was pretty good stuff. I figured this would last them the season since they are only "ambiance burners" in their open fireplace. Last weekend I was driving the ATV up the road to cut some more wood and ran into them. They flagged me down and asked if I had any more. They said it burned so good and put off so much heat...the wood they bought last year "didn't put off any heat". I told them it was probably pretty wet and my wood was about 2 years old so it should be dry. Since it puts out so much heat they are considering burning even more. I have mixed feelings about selling wood...I need time more than I need money...but these are good neighbors who can't get out there and do it for themselves. Not sure if I'll continue to sell to them, especially at this price. I'll figure that out later. Anyway, dry wood appears to be the real deal even for those not in the know.
