Twas out there staring at my rows of wood, which I like to do now and then. You know. Wander through the rows. Adoring my accomplishments. Checking out which wood will burn which year etc. Cmon, I know you all do it. I got to thinking. If I was to sell all this wood, what would it sell for? What is it worth? I have about 11 cords or 33 ricks. I'm figuring 3 ricks per cord. Around here a "rick" of wood sells for average $50.00. At that price my wood would be worth $1650.00. Then I realized, that's not what it's worth to me. I use propane when I use my furnace. Everything else is electric. In an average winter , burning no wood, best I can remember, I used between 400 and 600 gallons of fuel. Lets say 500 gallons. I called about propane today to get prices. Right now propane is $1.69 per gallon. She said the highest it got this winter was $1.89. When I rented my tank, I remember paying about $2.69. So if I go with average of $1.79 per gallon, I would have spent roughly $900.00 on fuel this winter. So........... I have 11 cords of wood which should last me about 5 years. 5 years x $900.00 is $4500.00. THATS what my wood is worth. Of course that's a very rough estimate because of fluctuating prices in fuel, milder winters etc. But I'd say that's the least it is worth. Our winters have been mild and propane right now is pretty cheap... I filled my propane tank at a discount rate of $1.40. per gallon because it was my first fill. That was 3 years ago and I've only used about 25% of the tank. I paid $559.60 for it and I should get at least another 3 years out of it. Plus, lets not forget the lack of wear and tear on my heating unit. So that can add to what my wood is worth too. Whats your wood worth?
