Our crews split, and the economics of that is simple. What an employee splits, they keep- whether for the home, or to sell. It is how we afford bonuses. We only split wood sourced from local tree removal, and only trees that HAD to come down. We do not de-nude the Northern forest, clear-cutting for a lift of hardwood logs.
You can order wood in advance, during the summer, and we can give you an idea what our inventory looks like. Ash, due to the tragedy that is EAB, is plentiful. Our firewood is a mixture of Sugar and Silver Maple, White and Red Oak, and Ash. Prices for 2015 were:
Face Cord (8′ x 4′ x 16″ (42 cubic feet)) = 120.00 + 40.00 delivery.
Bush Cord (8′ x 4′ x 4′ (128 cubic feet)) = 330.00 + 40.00 delivery.
Our wood is seasoned for the year, and since it is mostly harvested from dead or dying trees, it is very dry come Autumn.
