What is the price of fire wood in your area? Here it is running about $45.00 per face cord split and delivered. A face cord is 4ft.x8ft x16in.

I think you are talking about 8 ft. That we deliver for $80.00 per cord...10 cord minimum. That measures out at 4ft.x4ft.by 8ft. We call that a pulpwood cord.

$80 per cord cut/split/delivered, is very cheap... I get 150 bucks per cord ($50 per face cord) no delivery...
Pick up only...
The Only stuff I deliver is to one OWB customer who gets green hedge in the round and 24" long.
He goes through about 14 cord per year, and I kinda like him. I hate delivering...

I took your 4x8 ft, 16" deep, multiplied it by 3 which would give 4x4x8 foot, cord. I could be wrong lol but that's always been a cord here.

yes that is correct. But our 8ft wood is delivered in 8ft lengths not cut up or split.

So you guys can get 10 cord on a truck? That's about 55,000 lbs ? The reason I ask, is I've contemplated having one of the local guys drop a full load of Oak and Hickory here for me to process for 1 customer who sells cooking wood.
A 10 cord load would process out to about 12 cord by the time I'm done with it...

Wow, if you guys are talking hardwood, those prices sound pretty damn good.

Around here, DF and Larch would bring $150-$175 a cord, delivered.

Birch would bring more -- maybe $190 delivered.

I started the year with about 35 cord in the barn, and sold every bit of it before the 1st of the year. Customer pick up...
The big Hedge burner gets his delivered direct from the field... Never sees the barn...
I was thinking of raising my price, but there's tons of people around selling for alot less. Maybe not legit???
Or just one time beer money guys???

We can haul 20 cord.... The log trucks are plated for 152,000 lbs Michigan is one of the states that you can haul heavy loads. I think Wisconsin is up there close. In the spring when it starts to thaw we can only haul about half. But that only last for about a month.

I wonder what state line face cords/ricks stop being used (ND,SD?).

AFAIK, full cords have been the only measure used for firewood in MT. Not that I don't like the face cord thing, as it calls out a cord in 3rd's.

You are correct... There is no official standard for anything but a CORD... But every region has it's own terminology.
Face cord was originally termed from the "face" stack from a cord... Many times it was in reference to cookstove wood which was actually cut around 12"...
Around here, a "Rick" of wood notates a single row stack 4' high x 8' long... Problem is, "what length"??? :saywhat:
Ugh... Terminology...
