We do a bit of both. We bought most of what we'll burn next year and we've hooked up with a tree company to deliver most of the following season's wood, cut and split, for around $120/cord (all hardwood). The tree service also said they'd add us to their "rounds" list where they call and if you want 'em they'll drop a load of rounds off at your house. DH has been scrounging wood the neighboring towns have been cutting along the power lines as well. We have neighbors who let us take a couple of their downed trees, and we have a couple of oaks down behind our house (3-4 30-40 foot trees that are off the ground but uprooted and hanging across a stream - a bit puzzling how to attack them without having them stand back up...). I think we have enough kindling to open a shop.
