I get 120 for half cord in central Texas. If the winter is cold people will pay more and the prices will probably go up everywhere.

You figure most folks pettling firewood are cutting 16-18" length. They are calling it 2'.
Best i figure is there's a quarter of the wood missing.

Yes but if it is 16 inch wood, it should be three sticks wide to make a chord.

Misty, just to be clear, a "Face Cord" is 42.67 cubic feet or 4' X 8' X 16".
A full cord is 128 cubic feet or 4' X 4' X 8'.
It takes 3 Face Cords to equal a full cord of wood...

To give everyone a good perspective of just how much wood a full cord is, a long wheel base pick up bed stacked end to end between the wheel wells and to the top of the cab front to back is a cord of wood. Dang few people buying wood thinking they're getting a cord, or 1/2 cord actually get what they pay for...

Yep, my family sold and delivered firewood back in the 1980s out in West Texas.
We sold a cord of firewood (4 wide, 8 wide and 4 deep.) for $150 delivered and stacked. My dad worked us hard...

A Face Cord is 1/3 of a cord measuring 4 ft. high by 8 ft. wide by 16 inches deep. 16" being the normal length of a single stick. Sold these for $95 delivered. Usually to people who had limited space for storing wood or limited funds. They would also almost always tip my brother and I at least the extra $5.

Like everything else the price of wood has gone up.

Most people want 16-18” lenths, the reason the price stays the same is you every chunk has to be cut and split. It’s just as much hard azz work.
I still cut my own wood for myself and don’t sell it anymore, but if somebody wanted 16-18” lengths they would get 4x8x16-18” or it’s not worth the effort.
I usually cut around 8 cords a year for our personal use, but if I was to sell it would be $180 for 1/2 cord or $350 for a full cord and they would pick it up.
But I am getting older.

Don稚 know the cord size, but a 5.5-6 truck bed packed to the top is roughly 300 pieces of wood at 2920 and Ella/Falvel is $200 for post oak, pecan or red oak. Help them fill your truck bed and they tend to throw in an extra 20-30 pieces.

So for a back pickup load you get less wood but charged more?

I assume you are talking about filling up the bed of a truck, is that correct?

Yes that痴 what he means. Most places here are $275 for a 1/2 cord, customer pick up. And it was hard to find. I ended up with pecan, and I won稚 buy it again if I have a choice. It did come in a handy aluminum chemical tote cage!

When you live on a treeless plain, your wood has to be imported

I know some folks who had some delivered in Rockwall. The husband was bragging about how good a price he got including delivery. I asked him if that included stacking on his back porch, he said “ yeah that’s why I’m having it delivered.” He had paid upfront and came home to it piled in the front driveway. They brought it in a dump trailer.
