    We have bulk firewood and also bagged firewood. All the wood is hardwood hand loaded so no junk and has been seasoned for over 3 years. The bagged wood can be tied at the top so no snow or rain gets in so no need to stack wood anymore we can place the bagged wood right at the end of your driveway or next to the side door. Bagged wood is $100 a bag plus $10 deposit on the bag. Delivery varies depending on location so please email your location and I will get back to you right away. If you buy 6 bags or more delivery is free

    Location: SUFFOLK / NASSAU

    Looking at the picture, it's about the size of a grocery bag. Not a bad markup for a couple of pounds of wood, worth less than the bag deposit.
    Less than ethical, or maybe a typo on the decimal point.

    Looks like they are feed bags, which would mean it's about 1/4 cord of wood then. The bags I worked with are 48"x48"x48"

    That bag is a 1 yard landscaping bag.

    so

    36x36x36 or 27 cubic feet of wood. or just shy of 1/4 a cord.
