Finding firewood during the stormy season is good because it is the time trees drop. First, you should know what the cost of one cord of wood is, for that look for tree removal and firewood removal companies. You can call these companies and ask them about the costs. The people you have been talking to may make use of phrases such as face cord or Rick that are not standard and legal measurements. These standards may vary from person to person and from place to place. Make sure that they tell you the price of a full wood cord.
If you are looking to purchase wood at a lower price than the market price, you can contact the sellers and ask them what type of wood they are selling. You are obviously looking for seasoned and dense wood. Depending upon where you are living, you will want something such as oak, shagbark hickory, sugar maple, apple, black locust and other such dense woods. While finding firewood, you can also ask the seller whether the wood has been seasoned or not. Seasoned one has less moisture content and thus is able to give out more heat, is easier to burn and has less creosote. If the wood is seasoned inadequately, it will not be able to perform in the way seasoned wood will.
You can also tell your neighbors and friends that you have been finding firewood. May be they will have an unused rack of wood that may be extremely useful for you. It is not unusual for people selling wood from wooded lots within an area near a camping ground. Do not buy stuff from a roads unless it is valuable and at good price. After a storm, there may be many fallen trees and branches here and there. You can collect this fallen stuff and use it for heating your home.
