firewood

Post by Coolidge » Mon Jun 30, 2014 8:10 pm

Reading on the forestryforum a guy from Southern Maine is in need of tree length firewood and cant get any, guy in Northern Maine is 300 cord behind for the same reason, I know the mills are paying $120 a cord for hardwood pulp, guess I better get cutting.

Have him call me if he is in southern Maine Coolidge, I know a guy! I would go there and talk with him but the forestry forum kicked me off over a year ago because I refused to pay them for advertising.

You probably would not believe the story if I told you! I simply don't like it when I'm forced to pay to play, they have some very closed minded mods on there!

So the mills are buying it all up and the little guy can't buy any. Doesn't seem right. :(

I certainly don't think that is the way it is, I can buy all the wood I want but you have to be willing to pay for it, some guys think the logger is getting rich, the mills set prices on the old theory of supply and demand, Private customers think they should be able to buy at or below that rate but forget what a pain it is in the butt #1 to collect the CASH #2 to access the property with power lines, pretty lawns and paved driveways #3 the guy that consistently complains about being short by 1/2 cord on a load ( the mills buy by weight not volume and this is how the logger judges his load) The typical transplant argues these issues far to often and then the local logger refuses to deal with them, The loggers all know one another and bad news spreads very fast.

That's the way it is with most products if you have the money and are willing to pay then you can have. But that doesn't mean it's a fair market price. Sometimes it just isn't right. Oil is a prime example of something everyone needs but is overpriced for what it is.

Thank big govt. Subsidies and bought votes for that, How about using a fuel readily available locally, carbon neutral and will pay for the investment in less than 5 years, WOOD!!
