Everyone around here goes by 'face' cord. Everyone I know sells mixed Cherry, Maple, Ash, etc. and it goes for $50-85/ face cord, usually cut, split and delivered. No stacking.

Seriously.....?????..... I'm with Matt from NY, its hard to for me to get 55-60 per face cord. Are the rest of you really getting 2-300 per face cord or are you referring to pulp cord? If so I will start trucking tomorrow.

Most likely they are all talking about full cords. Hence 4 face cord at $50 would equal $200/ cord. Its all proportional, just depends on where you live and how the wood is sold locally.

All I know of is a cord of wood. A cord of firewood is 128 cubic feet of wood most commonly stacked in a pile 4 feet wide by 4 feet high by 8 feet long.
I have never heard of anyone around here being able to sell firewood professionally any other way than a cord. At times I see piles of wood for a price and that is another matter between the buyer and seller. I sell firewood by the cord....a minimum of 128 cubic feet... period.....All it takes is a call to Department of Weights and Measures...when they get involved it has to be a cord of wood if a professional is involved or fines get levied. 26 years and have not 1 complaint....Ken

Thats your local market. No dept. of weights or measures around here is going to tell anyone of our local firewood suppliers they can no longer sell by face cord. I've never heard of anyone in this area sell by cord, all facecord. I just looked, to reassure myself I am right, in the local newspaper, 9 ads for firewood for sale- every one of them $XXX per face cord (or FC):waving:

Once again I'm with Matt. I've been in the business for quite a while now and have never seen anyone sell retail firewood for anything other than a face cord (4' tall x 8' long x 16-18" deep). Here a 128 cu. ft. pile is considered a pulp cord. Typically it is only the pulp haulers that sell in this quantity.

Funny how different parts of the country have a different perspective on things.

Around here a 4x4x8 cord is $350 for hardwood mix delivered. No one advertises for a face cord. Some suppliers will sell 1/2 cord.

dumb question... where can I get the logs to cut/split/sell??? Do I just call a sawmill? What should we expect to pay for logs? We have chainsaws/splitters/cheap labor/space-- we just need the "raw materials". We're in east central Wisconsin (Oshkosh/Fond Du Lac/Fox Valley).

Here same as Matt, all by the FC. Matt there only 3 FC in a cord thought (4'/ 16"). It ranges here from 50 to 100 per FC.

Around here they sell it by the Rick. I never heard that term until I moved here. It's a pretty small quanitity, but I'm not sure how it compares to a cord. The price for a "rick" is usually around $45.

I found the definition of a rick. It goes for $45 if you pick it up yourself.

rick
a traditional unit of volume for firewood. A rick represents a stack of split firewood 4 feet high and 8 feet long, the logs being of a standard length, usually 16 inches. This is equivalent to 1/3 cord or 1.208 steres. However, because the size of a rick has been manipulated by vendors, it is illegal to sell firewood by the rick in several U.S. states. A rick is sometimes called a face cord or tier. The name of the unit comes from a old Norse word for a stack of wood.

We get $125.00 a cord here its all mixed hardwood. I would actually like to get into wood more in the winter months currently we sell around 100 cord per year. I would like to start and move more we have everything we need to produce more volume and have suppliers that would be willing to haul us more wood in, we just need someone or someplace to haul it to.

If anyone close is interested in wood let me know I would be interested in putting some on pallets and wrapping them for shipment

Funny how different parts of the country have a different perspective on things.

My dad retired and moved to upstate NY from NH, we used to talk about how things like this come up every so often to show how things evolve differently in different areas. He came up with a term for it, he called it regional theory. Thought that was kind of neat.

Cordwood here is going for $300-$330 a cord. Never heard of it being sold any other way except sometimes half-cord.

Guy in NH was just in the news for a new business he started, he built a huge kiln, fits like two dozen metal crate things full of split wood in it. He can dry like a hundred cord a week, selling for I think it was $330.
