CSD hardwood in Southern Maine is running from $175 - $210 this season. We have a few suppliers who are very well known and have been in business for many years and their prices are about the same. One is $200 a cord and the other is $205. The $205 will deliver a blend of Sugar Maple, Oak, Beech, Ash, and Birch. There is no delivery fee with the $205. The $200 charges a $25 delivery fee per 3 cord load. The $200 also can give me 100% red oak for the entire order. I am looking to get 6 cord delivered for burning season 2011-2012. I am wondering if you think that paying a little extra for all Red Oak is worth it, or do you think that a blend is more valuable than raw BTU's available. The $200 with the delivery only moves the per cord price to $209.
