It is a location thing where I live. I can buy it in the country for $60 a cord or process it myself from the woods and sell it in town for $150. I normally find a neighbor who has had their property logged and buy the tree tops that are left behind for $10 per cord and of course I do all the work, cutting splitting, and hauling. Works well for me. I run a add in the local paper and will do several deliveries at one time to save on fuel cost. Some people who setup on the side of the road get between $200 and $300 a cord but I can not stand to sit around all day waiting for people to stop by. I would go crazy. I guess it all depends on your location though.
