I have a retired gent that lives about 7 or 8 miles from me. He sells spilt hardwood for $50 a face cord. He had some unsplit Hickory and thought it might be about 1/2 to 3/4 a face cord, said I could stop by in a few days and he'd have it split for me for $40. I agreed and when I came back to load it up it came to a face cord and he stood by his price. I like doing business with this guy, I've bought Maple and Ash from him in the past and he's always done right for me.
I've got a friend that owns a 500 acre apple orchard, I pay $30 for a shortbox pickup full of apple wood. He also has some peach trees but i don't know if he's trimming or pruning them yet. When he does, I'll be trying peach wood. Peace, Wanbli
