    $150-$200 (Doug Fir) - if you buy it.

    Free - if you have the slightest bit of hustle.

    In May 2008 we got a grapple log length load for about 75 bucks a cord, in July we picked up another 4 cords of log length for 300 bucks.
    Right now the price of log length wood is up around 100 per cord if you can find it. Right now we are waiting to hear back from our wood guy on
    a grapple load (hopefully soon) for the rest of our supply for 09/10 season

    Local firewood dealers around here are charging $150 per cord on average, but you can find better deals on Craigs list and newspapers. I recently bought 2 cord of Oak for $160 but I had to split most of it.

    Thats how it is around here. $150 a cord of mixed hard wood. I haven't bought any I scrounged 3 cord last winter.
    And have another cord that should be ready for next season.

    I seen a sign in the store window tonight for un-split green wood for $40 a cord with you going to pick it up. $60 a cord for split. I have no idea what kind it is but I am sure it is hardwood since evergreens are not very common here.

    From the local craigslist:
    [quote/]
    FIREWOOD FOR SALE
    OAK $200.00 PER CORD
    LOCUST $175.00 PER CORD
    HEDGE $175.00 PER CORD

    DELIVERED AND STACKED[/quote]


    Clearly, hedge being the best buy. The prices always seem high to me - I figure if I can't get wood for free, it probably doesn't save much to buy wood versus natural gas. But then when I go get wood - 1/2 cord a time in the truck - it seems like $175 would be pretty cheap if I had to sell it!

    $180-200 per cord of Red Fir here fro good quality stuff.

    $225 for Tamarack/Larch

    "Seasoning" is questionable with almost all wood suppliers, as to most of them seasoned just depends on how dead the tree was that they cut. I've run several neighbors through the whole seasoning bit and have finally convinced most of them to buy most of their wood a year ahead.

    it varies around here in central Connecticut.i have seen it as low as $175 and as high as $300 a cord delivered.

    i was selling a load of hand tossed ,split ,seasoned in my 156 cubic foot dump bed for $225 delivered.i sold 6 excess cords and the rest i'm keeping.i do have about 5 cords of oak( mixture of red,white and pin) but it's still somewhat green.i may sell that the way it is to get it out of my way.

    I sell seasoned mixed hardwoods for $150.00 a cord, plus delivery if over 5 miles. Price will probably go to $165.00 a cord after January due to incresed cost of buying logs. I am in the process of building my own kiln for wintertime use and think the cost per cord will be about $180.00 to cover energy consumption.

    I saw aprice of $400 a cord in last Sunday's Manchester paper, which is about 40 miles south of here.

    At that price I hope it comes with a little dude that stacks it and tends the fire while I'm at work...

    Hey Bigg Redd, that avatar pic. is Hilarious!! Do you think he really does listen to Slayer??
