Closing down

Recommended Posts

I have been doing firewood for about 10 years as a sideline and my body has decided enough is enough, and there are easier ways to earn some cash.


The issue I now have is.... I have loads of hardwood either cut to meter long splints or a large pile of rounds (8 -10" thick).


In total there is probably about 50 - 60 tonne. 


I know the price I would get for it as firewood but how much to pass it off as a job lot.


All the wood is oak, ash, beach with a little bit of holly (at most about a tonne).


Any ideas?


I'm in South Wales or gods country as I call it.

Is it not worth hiring someone in to split it and dry this summer to sell on? Gotta be a youngster after work locally or isn’t there the profit to do this ( never sold firewood)

Gobby punkyeah I want it moved on I don't mind 2 or 3 trips to collect but I don't want any more collection trips. As said it's all in about 1m lengths or 8" thick rounds.

Dbikeguy getting someone in to split is not the problem it's the delivery and unloading the other side that causes the issue and if I was going to pay someone then it would mean I'm getting pittance for the load. This was my sideline and did to the amount sold each year not financially viable to pay someone.

Sorry to hear you're having to stop. Is it stacked or loose, just thinking how to measure the amount?
