firewood delivered!

Two local farm boys delivered my fall rack of firewood for the upcoming season for a great price they even stacked it. I know this is not much to do for you rural folks, however us city boys get excited over this kind of thing!.Click image for larger version

Any time you can get somebody else to deliver and stack your firewood, it's a big deal, even for us country boys.

Up here in New England, transporting firewood is forbidden thanks to invasive insects. I have nearly a cord of wood in my backyard but I can't do anything with it. Whenever I go camping, I have to buy firewood there.

Always good to be prepared and ready.
Wish I could get my son to stack my firewood! I'll probably go through 3-4 cords in my fireplace insert once I start using it - hopefully the later the better!

I think if you look into it a little more you can move your wood anywhere in MA legally except your state parks. I find it ironic that your MA DNR forbids you bringing ANY firewood into your state parks including treated wood with the USDA certification, and that requires you to purchase wood from the state at the park. At the same time you can jump on the Boston Craigslist and get all the wood you want delivered anywhere including property that abuts a state park. I guess the pests respect the property lines and read the regulations.

In CT, there are signs on the road that say transporting firewood is prohibited.

Our boy scout troop sold firewood as a fund raiser to help offset the costs of trips, dads & moms would cut and split the wood ( mostly donated ) and also haul it, the boys would help load and unload and STACK the firewood where ever the customer wanted it. It was a great fund raiser as we never paid out of pocket for our sons trips including Philmont backpacking, Jamboree, summer camps, and weekend trips, now keep in mind we did put in a lot of hours doing this but was time well spent with the boys

A tornado ran through a tract of forest near my town about 4 years ago, so there is a lot of down timber. I pay $75 for a local farmer who delivers me a heaping 8' pickup truck bed full of wood and helps me stack it. Last time he gave me about a dozen pieces of osage orange, too. Can't beat the price for about 3/4 of a cord of wood, and its all well aged maple, oak and hickory.
