Hello John,Norma,Grace,Millie,and Huck.What does a ton of bulk birch or other hard wood run in your vicinity? That's got to be the way to buy it if you want to do a little[or a lot of] work.Good luck with Grace and her colic.Hopefully it will be over soon.

I don't know of anyone that sells it by weight. I have only seen wood sold by volume. Up here a cord of wood (4'x4'x8') runs anywhere from around 65-85 dollars delivered. That is for 8' "rounds". Price is a lot different for split wood.

Does anyone knows of a reasonable supplier of split/delivered birch in the Grand Marais Minnesota area? The quotes I have received have all been in the $300/cord range.

while on the subject Im going to be burning wood this winter at my camp and im wondering what is the best wood to burn in a wood stove? I just cut down and split some elm trees and a maple tree just curious what the prime wood for burning is.

I find that hickory and ash are the best for a long, steady burn, but pretty much any hardwood is going to give you a nice fire and burn longer and cleaner than a softwood.

heating with wood is very nice. I burned under 4 cord last season and heated exclusively with wood. We have a "England" air tight unit that does an incredible job. Last season I had a very large Hemlock tree on my property that was down. it fell partially into another tree a few years ago so it stayed off the ground. I asked people about burning it in my stove and most suggested I not burn it for reason of creosote build up, I burned it anyway and I went up to clean the pipe in the spring and it was clean. I couldn't even fill up a dust pan within the 18' section of stainless steel liner. Hemlock burns nice, I don't care what anybody says, I still have another full cord of it and I'll be burning it this year before long. I may even drop a few trees next week for next season, it also smells wonderful outside when I come and go, I love the smell of hemlock puffing away at the chimney
