    Ever since I was young, i've cut and sold firewood. Now days, I usually sell around 75-100 ricks per year at $65. I was just wondering if anyone else was in the firewood biz. It really helps me get through the winter months :usflag:

    Ya i do i don't make much maybe a grand. But I only sell a few cords a year. I just do it cause i will burn occasionally and the cause sometimes i get a tree job and have to haul away wood anyway.

    I've sold firewood for 10 years. I do snow removal and firewood brings in $ between mowing income and plowing income. The only thing that stinks is people will burn the last piece of wood and then they call when it's snowing

    We sell about 25 - 30 ricks a year. We have a farm and we get the wood from a tree row we are cleaning up. We charge $100.0 per rick. We have had the same clientele for the past 5 years. Makes things easy, we deliver at the beginning of winter the same amount as they bought the previous year.

    I sell it some. I keep whatever I can off of jobs and work it up in my spare time. We gots oak, madrone, almond, plum and some pine. It makes for good off the books income.

    We sell 100-150 cords per year. Customers love calling right before a snowstorm or the day of when they run out.
