Default Wood: What do you pay?

I'm in San Antonio and bought some wood this weekend. I went to two places here is what I bought and paid. The two white bags were oak $12 and mesquite $15. (this was from a different place than where I wanted to go, only went there because I could not find the other. Under that you can see additional larger pieces I got 25 oak and 25 mesquite for $20. For me I like the larger pieces for $20. I can cut into smaller pieces if I need to. They are about 24 in long. What are you guys paying locally?

Ive been doing pretty good with no having to pay for anything as I have friends with tree companys and after hurricane sandy there was more free wood than you can imagine. Though I usually only have Oak and Maple locally. An Apple Orchard south of me sells a 4'x4' apple bins full of apple rounds for $50 though

Nothing. I can cut hickory, white oak, post oak, cherry, apple, and a lot more by the truckload off my place or at my workplace.

If I wanted nothing but oak (and I was willing to split it myself), I could probably get it for free. But, I want oak and hickory (and I'm lazy) so I pay $60 for a Toyota Tacoma truckload (I have a shortbed.) The wood is already cut into 16" lengths and split.

I buy maple for $20 for a 18lb sack of heartwood chunks. Same thing for Apple and Cherry. Hickory I go out to the farm and split and chunk it for the price of fuel. We have hickory galore out there.

I don't own a stick burner anymore so my wood consumption is a lot lower than it once was so 18lbs of each kind of wood lasts me long enough to justify the cost.

I buy 1-2 cords of wood a year for my fireplace. Most of it is red oak, I just cut it up for my WSM. If I feel like something different, I grab a bag or two at the HD.

This was the first time I went to buy wood for my new stick burner, there is another place close to me that I will check their prices too. Maybe I need to buy a chain saw?

I have a couple apple orchards close buy that always give me a few logs when I need them. I have not needed any apple in over 4 years! I am down to my last log though and it's pretty dry. I also have a guy that will give me logs of cherry from the trees he cuts. Hickory, or Pecan, I usually buy at Home Depot. Oak is pretty plentiful around here also so I usually just cut my own.

seems to me the question is to people who actually have to pay for wood and dont get it for free.

I paid $60 for a 1/2 face cord of seasoned split hickory and cherry, this is in SE Michigan, I am sure its different wherever you live
