Hi folks, We have a local pallet company that builds pallets and skids from PA hardwoods, primarily oak and maple. They use rough cut 6x6, 3x6 and 2x6 stock, and sell the "ends" for $0.65 per cubic foot. The cut off ends typically measure 4 to 12 inches, average 6 to 8. Its nice wood for burning once its seasoned. They measure your truck or trailer, figure out the square footage, and charge accordingly. Yesterday I took my enclosed 5x8 trailer to pick up a load. This is clean, freshly cut hardwood, not kiln dried. Based on the weight estimate of the manager I talked to, 36 to 58lbs per cubic foot, I only filled the trailer 18 inches deep, or about 60 cubic feet, almost a half cord. He charged me $35. It was packed in tight, very little space between pieces. Two questions: 1) Is that a decent price for that type of wood? 2) What is the average weight per cubic foot of green hardwoods? I stopped at 18 inches in my 5x8, 2990lb GVW trailer, and was worried I was seriously overweight already based on the manager's estimates that the wood weighs 36 to 58lbs per cubic foot. I searched the internet and found wide variations, with claims that green oak runs 70lbs per cubic foot. If that's the case, my trailer was dangerously overloaded. If hauling firewood routinely, it looks like I'm going to have to sell the enclosed trailer and pick up a double axle trailer. What do you all do for hauling green hardwoods? Do you even figure out the weights and volumes, or just load up and go?
