So from a harvesters point of view the stack thats 22ton totals to £990.(how long does/did it take to harvest that amount?) Also Theres alot of talk on here about the price of cord and how high it is (that price is alot lower than some that have been mentioned) so my question is that do u think you earn good money at those prices and that where others are chafging 70 quid a ton are high or are they just just earning a fair amount and due to lay out cost thats what they have to charge?

Cheers regards william :)

 

the 7:thumbup:0 quid would be the delivered price haulage can be 10-25 a ton depending on distance

There's so many variables that could dictate the answer of cordwood price and profit etc.

 

How big is the timber and how long does it take to process?

 

How easy is the site to work ie flat or steep etc wet sites can be nightmares if u have to brash mat everything

 

How far from wood to roadside access for wagons.

 

Everyone has different overheads and I'd rather shift the wood quickly at for a bit less than wait 6 months to get 100 quid a load more.

To be honest if I was cutting nice straight oak beech ash mix that was all 12" diameter the price would be more but as there is some oversize timber and small stuff then it's priced accordingly
