I always chuckle at firewood on CL. I have never seen a true cord offered.
Today we have a pile 2x4x8 for only $200 because he's moving. Billed as a bargain due to seller moving, but he wants about double price.
Another ad, $80 per wheelbarrow load? Best be one big wheelbarrow!
Unsplit Pine rounds for more than Oak?
Face cords?, rick racks? What the heck is that?
Guys claiming they can get 3 cords on a small dump? yeah right,,,
"mostly pine, spread around the yard? OK, he just wants free landscaping.
"free tree" You only need to cut it down and be licensed insured? Another who wants free landscaping.
Guys who are "taking bids" on their standing 60' Oak tree in a bad spot. I will remove it for $400, you pay me.
Or, free tree, you must saw it, then wheelbarrow it up hill, through the gate to the road. These ads run for months, nobody willing to take these great offers.
It is a dead tree, a liability in many cases, not a retirement fund.
My neighbor wanted cheap wood. He had some clown come cut down 2 nice Oaks in his front yard. Well, they dropped it across the phone lines, broke off the pole, it landed right in the road. Lucky no one was killed. Once he paid the phone co for their pole I figure he paid about $2,000.00 per cord. and now has 2 ugly stumps where he had 2 nice shade trees, which will grow back,,, in about 50-100 years.
