I've been ordering firewood from Mammoth Firewood for the last 4 years. Last year, the wood they delivered was pretty crappy. Lots of bark, dirt, small pieces. Anyone else have any problems with them or was it just a fluke?

Also, does anyone have any experience with the other firewood company (GC Firewood)?

Thanks.

Scott

GC Forest Products is a sponsor of Mammoth Snowman's website. I know the Snowman gets his cords of wood from them, so maybe he'll chime in.

G.C. has a sale on wood...212.06 for a unseasoned cord of wood. I have had no problem with their wood.

Building them a new web site over the next week!

What's the .06 cents for? Is cord wood taxed?

I used peach hardwood last winter. It worked great... the key to getting it started is having a cord of soft pine.

Interesting difference in prices... in Maine premium pellets go for $299.00 a ton, and that includes delivery depending on where you get them, and it's not taxed.

GC's Firewood bought Mammoth Firewood. Now one in the same. Same quality. Im with you on the HardWood. It burns way better, longer, more value. I can put in three pieces of Almond before I go to bed and wake up to a warm house, then just throw a couple more pieces on the coals and have a fire through the day without having to re lite it. So nice. For Hardwood, Try DB's Firewood. They do great business. 760-935-4465 :)

I got a load from GC delivered to Bishop unseasoned for $195. Down here it starts drying out the day it is delivered and is ready to burn in a few days by rotating pieces. It was really a good load with different sized pieces and kindling. I was happy with it, and I have never bought firewood in my life. I will be buying all my loads from them from now on, and Brent is cool.

Believe it or not I began getting ready for wood season today. I tore apart the saw, cleaned the carbs, got the chains sharpened, blew out the air filter, changed the plug, ordered a new gas filter, and cleaned the bar. Last year I cut about 12 cords and already have a few trees marked with a GPS in my phone. Snowmobiling does have it's advantages.

I love wooding. From searching for it, cutting it, splitting it, and making my kids help me stack it. Last year we had a huge wind event in October and I went out and got three extra cords. It is split and buried under the snow so I have less work to do this year. Who knows, maybe I'll sell some? No way, I am too much of a wood whore.

You are my hero Grumpster! Did you splurge and get a brand new chain for that cut like butter?

Bishop is a four cord winter now and it used to be three. You guys up there might as well go year round, because it is a freakin' ice box. And watch out for the Bishop woodcutters. They are sneaky! I am a DWP man and don't do the forest service gig anymore. We don't need no stinkin' tags or LEOs sweatin' us. In a pinch GC is okay.

How do you go get your own wood ??? I guess I mean how are you allowed to do this? Do you get a permit? How do you know what you are allowed to cut.. It can't be whatever you want right?
