    Maybe it was special type wood, maybe they were artists, maybe they needed firewood ; )

    Hobo...is that for small.amounts or quantity? Once toy start dping that stuff it is almost always better to do the ultra large bales....just is that chicken and the egg thing...need the space and have to rent the right baler...then have enough you can do in a reasonable amount of time to fill a tractor trailer load...I know...I am looking into it here as no one around here ecen buys any of that locally...so talking with one of the large recyclers on pricing for paper, plastics, and old clothes (for industrial rags)

    Just small time . And old clothes textiles should be good money if you have the space for them...

    Also I am riding the coat tails of our City wide Blue Barrel Recycling program that I pay $16.95 a month for with my garbage / recycling and twice a month bulky waste pick up. If the city can get rid of this stuff then why wouldn't I help a business try and do the same thing without the subsidy!

    REALLY??? We're at $150-180/green and $190-220seasoned(dry)/cut/split&delivered. I read the other day that firewood supply is down due to rainy summer. Expect price spikes.
    People may laugh at me, but that's ok. I laugh all the way to the bank.

    Your prices are right on if i sell to a local homeowner but...
    I sell to a high end market of condo owners and mansion owners at ski resorts I can't get it up there fast enough lol. The crazy part is Mick that most of them will buy debarked firewood for there mansions at $450+ a cord just so they don't have the "mess". definitely worth hauling/cutting a log load or two it's not easy money but worth it selling to these folks.
    I am in the door at two major sub divisions that have just been started and am hauling wood as fast as I can get it. My Father is set for a couple years and a couple of friends had free wood (paid with labor) this year. right now it's a free wood free-for all for the foreseeable future.

    It is great that you found a paying outlet for these items hobo if i had the space and connections i would do the same.

    I've heard of that. A few years ago when I was selling firewood, a guy told me he sold debarked firewood to condo owners in Boston. Just like you're saying,they were REAL picky but paid about twice what he got around here. Sticks had to be exactly uniform length. no crooks etc,etc.

    How long do you season it and how do you debark it?

    Bear, I don't know how everybody does it but I season wood (meaning cut to the length you're going to burn - usually 16", 18" or 24"; split and left to dry) for two "seasons" (usually summer and fall). Burning sooner is considered "green" (too high of moisture content for efficient burning). Each species dries at a different rate but, generally, two seasons is the average. I've got some oak and maple this year that I've been drying in a covered shed for two years. As for debarking - The "wood" and the "bark" dries at different rates due to physical makeup. As it dries, the bark falls off or is easily stripped off.

    You guys are talking a full cord right? Most of what we sell around here is by the face cord.

    There is no legal measurement of "face cord" "truck load" or anything other than "cord" which is 128 cu ft - typically 4'x4'x8' and tightly stacked. Face cord simply means 4'x8'x whatever depth the logger chooses. That's why it's not given any legal status.

    Right, its usually 16 inches around here which makes it a third of a cord. I've seen it go anywhere from 60 bucks to 125 bucks depending on the type.
