The price of firewood in Wisconsin is skyrocketing. Most people that burn firewood, purchase it by the semi load from loggers. The wood is freshly cut and still has to be cut to length, split, stacked and seasoned. It usually comes in 10 - 12 cord (4' x 4' x 8') loads. Last year the cost was around $65/cord, which included delivery costs. Minimum purchase amount is 10 cords. This year, the price ranges from $80 - $100 cord. The reason for the big price jump? The pulp mills are paying significantly more for hardwood pulp. Stora Enso, the biggest buyer of pulpwood in the state, now pays as much as $120/cord (trucking allowance included) for hard maple pulp. This is driving the price of locally delivered firewood through the roof. Whats it like in your area?
