Ash & oak cordwood

Can anyone tell me the going rate for green oak and ash cordwood (green). I have been offered 25 tons of mixed ash & oak unseasoned for 45 per ton if i buy 25 tons, this includes delivery. This is my first thread and i would like to take this opportunity to say "what a brilliant site"

I'm led to believe the FC recently sold hardwood timber in Norfolk for about 35quid/tonne standing, so that doesnt sound bad in comparison.

i really dont think anyone would pay that for standing, do you mean roadside - or is it something special like gold plated timber

Re: Ash & oak cordwood

I was pricing out a local firewood supplier, for him to buy cut to his spec and he only offered me 30 a ton delivered!. My impression was that straight coppice hardwood (mixed syc,ash,birch,alder and oak) would get more than that. Comments welcome.
As for 45 per ton delivered, sounds a bit pricey but how far has it come and how good is it in terms of size and straightness?

Crikey - if that's what it's worth down there perhaps I best float it round and set up a stall.

Re: Ash & oak cordwood

35 a ton deliverd is about right,but the hualage can be some what steep as the trucks are custom built for timber & cant do back loads like genral hualage flats/tilts etc

Re: Ash & oak cordwood

depends on the size of the timber, u dont want to processing large diameter cordwood ie the chalkwood left after all the quality sawlogs have gone to the mill....into firewood.......45 for 14in td 3metre lengths sounds good
