    How much is 1/2 a cord of firewood in your area delivered and stacked?
    My SO and I sell it on occasion to make ends meet during the winter months.
    This year the price is $120 for above cirmumstances.


    I see $75 - $200 on CL for a load so I dont know if Im charging too much or too little.

    What do you pay in your area?

    1 full cord of almond wood here is $305. That's what I paid a couple weeks ago.

    We paid $225 for a cord, split and delivered, not stacked. I wasn't impressed with the quality of the wood, though. We won't be using the same person again. It's not a bad price for around here, but I want good dry wood that I can use!

    $120 for a half cord delivered and stacked sounds reasonable to me.

    Delivered, not stacked.

    ETA: We prefer a hard wood like peach, almond or eucalyptus. Pine burns too fast, so we wind up spending more.

    Interesting...
    My SOs family owns a logging company so we can pick and choose the wood we use.
    Should I use that in my ad?

    Quote:Sarah you are going to have to sell by the type of wood. Like:

    $125 almond
    $135 peach
    $100 Eucalyptus
    $50 pine
    per half cord

    Seriously pine is almost useless. It burns so quickly - with a hard wood you can fill the fireplace or stove, light it and it lasts all night. With pine you will have to refill every hour or so.

    Varies a lot. Plus a lot of posters don't specify FULL or FACE cord. If it doesn't say full cord, I assume they are trying to sell face cords to unknowing people.

    Just looked at our local CL:

    Prices listed

    180 Full Cord / 90 1/2 cord / 50 for 1/4 cord. Delivered, not stacked
    80 for level pickup truck load, not delivered. Your own truck needed.
    150 full cord / 75 half cord. You must pick up.
    2x4 stack, face. Pieces look small. Probably not even 14" cuts. $25. Delivery additional charge.
    12x5.5x3 foot trailer load (piled, not stacked so will have dead space between logs) $275
    200 / cord, hickory, you haul
    $450 for "large" trailerload. CLaims probably 4 cords.
    $100 truckload, level. You pick up.
    $170 full, $100 half. Does not specify delivered or not.
    160 half cord. Delivered not stacked.
    $200. Does not specify delivery/stacked.
    Green wood, $125/cord. Not delivered. $175 seasoned. Not delivered.
    $175/cord. Does not say anything more.
    $200 for a cord of "seasoned hedge"

    $200 a cord in most areas according to my message board for firewood that I visit. Also that is what I have seen on Craigslist. Just dumped- not stacked.
