I am getting 20-30 cords of wood delivered in the next month from some land I own a bit far away in exchange for him clear cutting the woods for me. So the wood delivered is 'free', sort of. So a friend, his 2 teenage sons, and I are going to cut & split the wood. I have 2-3 high traffic locations that I can stack up some wood and put up a sign 'Firewood For Sale'. There is one guy about 15 miles away that sells 400 cords/year. There is another guy 15 miles the other direction that has a big operation, but no clue how much he sells. We are in a rural area, with probably 40,000 people in a 10 mile radius. There are a few other guys that put out firewood for sale, and the signs/wood usually only sits around for at most a month. But not really sure how much wood they have. The wood is mixed hardwood. It is being cut down now, and we hope to c/s it in the next two months. My questions are: 1. Will people buy firewood in spring/summer? Or should I plan on not selling any until at least September? 2. Not having any customers lined up, can I sell 20 cords this year? Our only thing going for us is good advertising spots. 3. Do I have to deliver it? We've talked about it and would rather not offer delivery. Our area wood sells for anywhere from $150-$200/cord but I've never asked if it is delivered. I don't think it is. If you pay for delivery, how much do you pay or charge? 4. Any business aspect I've missed? Tips/Suggestions?
