I think that there are two kinds of people that heat with wood. There are amateurs like me or those on vacation in a rental with a fireplace and there are professionals. The professionals have a serious wood stove with lots of stacked wood around during the months that you aren't thinking about heating your house much. These people are splitting logs or having more wood brought when it seems that they are surrounded with firewood.
Then there us amateurs that run out of good firewood at the end of January because I couldn't find any good cured hardwood in October. When I got back from Christmas vacation I had only wood that was down on the property that had been rained on. I got small amounts from the store for $6.99 a bundle. You had to have a real log to go with it or it wouldn't last long. I tapped the resource I had and looked around.
Resale Lumber in Humboldt now has half cords of Almond wood. Good, hard and dry. $225.00 on a shrink wrapped pallet. Delivery is extra. They also have these compressed wood shaving fire logs for $1.20 a piece. These are shorter than the 3 pack ones you see in the hardware stores and some supermarkets. They also last a lot longer and don't expand like a slinky and die down after a couple of hours. I have found coals from these in the stove when I get home from work left over from the night before. That's over 20 hours of being lit. The main heat is good for about 6 hours or so and you'll need two to four for a good hot fire. They also stack well inside the house, in a cupboard or a closet or against a wall. It's a lot of heat for such a small container.
There is also Caloak firewood in a box at Safeway. It is $8.79 a box which is a cubic foot of good hard heavy firewood that lasts a long time. The duraflame logs don't put out any real heat and are bad for wood stoves.
Most years I have seen trailers and pickups full of wood with signs on them displaying the type, how much and a phone number. I haven't seen much of that around this winter so I wanted to pass this info along. I also wanted to see if any locals have any good wood they would like to sell at a decent price. If you have an old phone book, I am in there. C.O.D.
