scrounged up wood from a local tree surgeon friend.  I collect from him, buck and split myself, feed my own 2 stoves and my parent's stove, so I process 10 cube a year.  Saws, PPE, fuel/consumable and axes are soon paid for, and its good fn and great exercise!

Sister in law does  because she has one of those special stoves that only burn kiln dried hardwood

We have a 400m2 isolated farmhouse in the Welsh boarders which we heat from a Stovax 14HP log burner. I could not find a firewood supplier who could tell me what they would bring, why it was firewood, where it came from, what the moisture content was, exactly when they would come and a defined cost per unit. So I set myself up as a firewood merchant and provide that information to my customers.

Trees are not cheap, and by the time that you have transported it, processed it, seasoned it, delivered it, stacked it, and insured every person in that process, then firewood is not cheap, but it wont cost you the earth, like oil, coal and gas.
