    I recently sold off some odd sized firewood I didn't want to deal with. I wasn't sure how much was there, since I did't stack it too neatly. So the guy comes, and I hem & haw, and finally tell him 50 bucks for 2 small pikes, and we'll finish his trailer with another. So he shows up, and I measure his trailer, which is 64 CU'. So I basically sold him 1/2 a cord for 50 bucks. Some of it was green-ish oak, and some of of it was crappy apple, and the rest was 4 year dry hardwood. But, I told him 50 bucks earlier, so I had to stick to it. Well, he just called again 10 min ago. I told him I couldn't give him the same deal, but would sell him another 1/4 for $62. I should stop selling it before I loose my shirt, huh?

    Well if it was stuff you could not use and was taking up space then now you have $50 where before you had clutter...I think it's a win-win. :)

    Gosh I cringe when i think about it. All that work & someone else get to burn it .
    But you cleaned up an area & he got a good deal of some well seasoned wood.

    Yeah, the apple was nasty and messy, and I got sick of looking at it. The greenish oak was stacked in a weird spot, kind of in the way. Didn't plan that out too well. I just didn't want it in the way for 2 years, or to have to move it.

    At $62 for a quarter cord you're getting a decent price for the firewood. You have to decide if you want to sell more, but at least you're getting market value for it.

    I sell some of the wood I cut and split. I sell to the locals and the local campers in the area. I have a tree service drop log loads for me, then i prossess it and keep some for me and sell some. It pays for my wood , so all in all, I am burning free wood. I keep enough to stay ahead of the game and meet some of the nicest people. I sell for $50-60 a face cord , depending on the amount they buy.
