He is coming next Sunday with my load! Said he has about 2-3 cords and it’s been on a pile for 2 years. Said he sells wood for $200 a cord in season and out of season drops his price so he can still move wood. He said he has a nice sized customer list and even told me if my wood didn’t stack out right he would bring me more. Said he always wants to do right by people.I believe if I was you I would be all over that one. Delivered, cut & split.
I start a fire with hedge all the time. It's a non issue.Just keep in mind that OO isn’t worth a hoot for starting a cold fire. The stuff is so darn hard it doesn’t readily light from low temp flame. That said - I would be hoarding that stuff like gold nuggets. I have had a few stove loads this past winter (and many winters past) and there is almost no comparison on the length of burns that stuff puts out.,
I did... said he has an F250 with a dump trailer... says they are full cords and if I wasn’t happy with it he would bring me more. He said he wants to do right by people and keep his customer base.Verify that these are full cords and not face cords.
I find it easier to put dense wood like White Oak or BL in on a decent coal bed to get it burning easier. I'm assuming that the Hedge I have will be the same, whenever I get around to trying it. If I'm starting a cold stove, I'll put a couple of dense splits in the back but start the fire in the front with some Red Oak, White Ash or other easy-to-start wood.I start a fire with hedge all the time.

I think at the $$ amounts being mentioned - I would seek him out & keep doing that until he got me some. Then if it really works out like he said - I would get more. Lots more.Well... so... about that Osage Orange...
We had a lot of rain, and the guy told me he was stuck in the mud and wouldn’t be able to get a load of wood to me until the ground dries. I told him no worries... hit me up when you can get the load. He also then asked me if I wanted a cord of oak for $120 in addition to the Osage orange. I told him I had wood purchasing obligation to another guy and we could play it by ear.
So far..I haven’t heard from him since. I’m not seeking him out... I figure if he really wants to sell the wood he will reach out.
