Landowner wants firewood as payment - How much for a cord of wood in Hunterdon county?

Recommended Posts

Is the wood for him to burn this winter or next? If it’s for this winter you’re gonna have to shop around to find somebody with seasoned wood and 6 cords of it. If it’s for next year you have many options. Pick up a treasure there’s plenty of options in there.

Cut your own wood. Why pay someone else when you can do it for free? You don't know where the wood came from, or how the wood was handled unless you do it yourself. It's easy. Guaranteed, once you cut your own wood, you'll never have anyone else do it for you.

You have problems taking out your own garbage. I'm not sure if your qualified to be giving out advice,:laughing: pertaining to home chores.:laughing:

Does he get reimbursed for having trees removed from his property? Like farm assesment just asking i don't own any property.
His property is part of a forest stewardship program. He was telling me that the majority of his ash trees will be dead in a year or two because of beetles. Not sure if he gets reimbursed or not.

Ash is the easiest firewood to process.  You'll have 2 cords cut and split without breaking a sweat.

Having never done it before and at the risk of sounding like an ass, how many average size ash trees does it take to get 2 cords?

I would go fall 8 now and limb them. When it warms up  cut 4 into rounds then rent a splitter for 2 days. Then that leaves you 4 for your next payment

Or get a couple cases of beer and tell Rusty you know where there is downed trees. It will be split and stacked the next day

That would work if he wasn't down in south Jersey.  Enough of the right beer might get me to drive down below 80 but not 78.

Yet another reason why I won't be going down there.  Who in their right mind would put something called pork roll in their mouth???
