55 isn't old.

That's a sobering thought. Sorry to hear MTB.

Sorry to hear of your friends passing.

Thanks again for the thoughts guys.

As far as wood the only stuff I wouldn't burn if I was paying for it would poplar or cotton wood. If it's free it and it's dry it's going in the fireplace.

We don't have much pine on the island so always start fires with cedar then onto fir or whatever we have.

Mmmmm cedar!!! I pay $180 for 1/3 cord split.
I burn lots of pine . All our local forest is lodgepole pine. She’s sticky shit lots of crackin and poppin but burns good if dried nicely.
No cedar round here in the high plains dessert.

If you were closer we would take the pine. Pine sells for about $30 for a large split bag of firewood here or $135 for a 1/4 cord. We personally like birch but will burn anything, we have two fireplaces in our house.

I had someone try and do that to me on my last load of Doug Fir.. I had it listed for $340 for 2 cord, cut but not split.. I said delivery available for extra (figured 40 bucks for me to go drive there and offload with the dump bed trailer). Lady asked for it to be delivered and when I got there she backed out and said $300 including delivery?

I quickly corrected her that it was now a $300 delivery fee on top of a discounted price of $100 per cord. When I started closing up the gate to the trailer and started the truck, she accepted my original offer plus my $40 delivery.. I am getting petty and don't have time or patience for bullshit like that anymore.

No that's not called being petty. That's called not being ripped off. She knew exactly what she was doing so f*ck her or maybe not I don't know what she looks like.
