    If I’m running 404 it’s because I like how well it holds its edge. I don’t use it a ton but it goes forever between sharpening. Stuff that would just hammer a chisel tooth

    not to sound like a know it all but a lot of guys just like to say full chisel I think. Semi is great once the log hits the ground. Anything skidded around. Yeah semi for sure. Anything old hard and dead with any size to it I grab the 404 semi. Just my personal 2 cents

    I guess this is the appropriate thread for this question.
    What's the local charge per cord delivered in your area? Within 50 miles.
    I'm thinking with rising fuel costs and possibly a higher demand, truly seasoned wood should hit $400.
    "Semi seasoned @ $350 and green fresh cut at $275-300.
    All wood is good hardwoods. Softest being sugar/rock maple.
    Thinking of offering seasoned softer maples, popular and the like at $200ish. Dries quick enough in a season to sell as seasoned wood.

    Thoughts?

    Here's the past month of tree work piled up. Honey locust trees and the trunk of a maple as well. The limbs are in my trailer and I forgot to get a picture of those. It's all or nothing around here it seems. I took down 5 big elms last week, but left them lay for another guy because I'm moving at the end of the year to a farm and so I'm being a little picky on what I bring home until I get out there. I don't want to handle stuff 5 times unless it's locust. The farm is along a creek and a couple miles north of a "river", so there'll be tons of trees out there for me.

    All the firewood i sell is mainly standing dead oak. I have it now at $300 and that's a stacked 6ft wide by 8 feet long by 3 feet high load. So roughly 144 cu feet. Over a cord.
    I don't deliver for that price over 20 miles. You figure 40 miles round trip. Over that I have a fuel surcharge. At 7mpg and 4.40 a gallon it adds up.
    I don't do this for free.

    Here's the first haul of the 2 trees I cut today. There is another 4 already down, that I'll buck up and haul home as well. All of them honey locust.

    Nice Chevy trailer....
    I'll probably do similar to my box. Home built frame and axle. That's after I replace the bed on the truck with a flat bed.
